    You can only make free calls to other Skype users. If you plan on calling regular numbers you would need Skype credit.

    Yes, if she installed Skype on her computer or even mobile device and you use your Droid to call her Skype account that would be free. That's a Skype to Skype call on VoIP.

    Just wait for the new Skype app that they're gonna have next month and install that as it should be better than the current Skype apps out for the Droid right now. Or if you want to test it now, check Nimbuzz in the market and create two Skype accounts, one for you and one for your wife. Let your wife login on Skype on the computer and login on your Skype account with your Droid.

    I'd like to see Vonage make a Droid app. I prefer there voip service a little better.

    Ditto, I've been using VOIP (first Vonage and now VYL) for about 5 years. I have ZERO quality issues.

    I hadn't tried that, I was referring specifically to Skype Out. Skype to Phone, which Fring claims to offer but it just never would connect for me. It would just say "call failed" or whatever.

    I think they hate AT&T as much as most of us do.

    I can't imagine why Verizon would announce that Skype over 3G will become possible next month if it were already available.

    I use Fring, but I can't compare that to Nimbuzz since I've never tried it. Fring is pretty simple and I'm happy with it. I think I'll be using it a lot more after next month as I've got SkypeOut.

    You can already make Voip calls on ATT. I know my husband has the Nimbuzz app for his iPhone(no jail break). I find the call quality to not be the best, and most of my friends don't have it, so I don't use it much at all.
