    Lightbulb Skype for Android Hits The Market For All Phones Running 2.1+. No 3G/4G calling in US




    Skype is out, and not just on Verizon anymore! Less than 2 hours ago, the new, updated Skype hit the Android Market. Unfortunately, Skype decided to stick to no calling over the mobile data connection in the US (to Skype users or phone lines). That's a bummer, but we have no other choice and use WiFi. The app weighs in at 9MB and runs on Android 2.1+.

    There are some login issues with Galaxy S phones, but Skype has already acknowledged them. Give them some time to work it out.

    We went hands-on and provided initial impressions and a plethora of screenshots, available right here:[Breaking, Hands-On] Skype For Android Now Available For Download In The Market For All Phones! Still No Calling Over Mobile Data In The US

    Well correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought the old skype did not allow you to make wifi calls, thats what everybody always complained about. Saying its useless without wifi.

    Now it can finally use wifi? but not 3g?

    this is exactly what everyone was asking for when it was 3g only, because people didnt want to have to pay for the phone anymore if they can call everyone via the wifi and now they can from what it seems like at least, ill try it tonight.

    The Verizon version doesn't ding your minutes if you're calling other Skype users. For US users all calls to non-Verizon numbers in-country are counted against your plan minutes if calling non-VZW customers, international calls are counted against your Skype credit. I can't speak for non-US customers.

    Skype-to-Skype is free, is what I'm trying to say, even though it uses the voice network.
