    My girlfriend is travelling to Spain in the near future, and I'll be staying here. I have a Moto Droid and she has the Hero, is their any apps or what not we can use to talk to each other, without running up a huge international calling bill?

    Just looked over the fring site, bit confused on how it works?


    Oh and whats the final answer on making skype-to-skype international calls with mobile phones? I can't figure out whether its free like all other skype-to-skype calling or if it costs Skypecredit or just has a low rate comparitively (sp?)

    Skype to Skype is free. Always has been. I find it easier to use my PC or laptop when I call but your phone would work too.

    Verizon really took a **** on Skype with the Droid. It sucks pretty bad, can't even send an SMS to a cell phone.

    Speaking of, why are all the really popular apps, so ****ty on the Droid? I mean, come on. Facebook, Skype.. just to name a couple.

    Sorry to go off topic before. My girlfriend lives in Germany, and I live in the US. We used to use Skype everyday, not only on the computer to chat at home, but during the day on our iPhones to send $0.12 text messages... well now we can't, because the Skype is almost useless with the Droid.

    We use Google Talk. Free messaging :)

    if she has the ability to use a local phone while she is there you can use google voice to call her and its only .02 cents a minute to call spain via google voice.


    here are the rates

    My girlfriend is in another country as well. We use Google Voice all the time :). Not only for $.06/min calls but for free sms too.
