    Is that something that now is possible? If not, what's the real advantage here?
    Airplane mode kills WiFi connections. It kills ALL wireless connections.
    Negative. I was able to surf the web (including here) through wifi. Only thing that kept me sane for two weeks.

    My bad. If I'm out of country I turn off the 3G and roaming and leave on the WiFi connection -- no need for Airplane mode.

    But my bad on the fact that Airplane mode is supposed to turn off all wireless connections. FCC regulations and all that.

    True and one fact I failed to remember was that airplane mode does kill wifi but then you can go in and turn only that on and it'll work.


    So, still no calls over wifi on Skype? What exactly did the hack do for us?

    Jim,

    If you're talking about the new version of Skype (not Skype Mobile, the official Verizon app), it lets you make calls over WiFi and this cracked version allows 3G as well.

    The version this story is about is just Skype and it only hit the market like yesterday and ONLY works with WiFi.

    And I know there's a clearer way to say that, but it's just not coming to me.

    Clear as mud! Thanks!
    Now that I installed the one in the OP I'm thinking that the calls over wifi need to be made to other Skype numbers, not just any phone. I'm also guessing that falls under the "well, duh" category, but hey, I know nothing of Skype.

    Thanks for the input.

    Jim,

    I am muddling through this as well, as I had not given skype a thought until I saw this thread. I signed up for the monthly unlimited US and Canada for 3 bucks a month, and supposedly I can call unlimited for that amount, to mobile or land lines.

    Methinks this is working, as I have been testing here at my home office, and I am able to place calls via wifi or 3g. As I did not give skype a credit card number for calls by the minute, I hope this confirms that you can indeed use skype for most calling needs, with the proper monthly/minutely plan. I really needed this as for my home office, I very limited cellular coverage, only any at all with a repeater/amp. I think I can turn off my amp now, as it pertains to out going calls.

    I have no real need for Skype.
    But I do want to give kudos to xeudoxus.
    This fine man has given our community some priceless tools and apps for our phones.

    Thanks again to WenWM for posting this and especially xeudoxus for this awesome addition to our ever-growing applications list!
