What I need is to call/receive calls to people on other cell providers without using plan minutes. The Verizon friends and family feature is not available to me. I want to call over 3G. I heard rumors that the Skype Mobile VZW app uses plan minutes even though it goes through 3G. I installed the app long ago and it seemed maybe that was the case, then I uninstalled. I recently looked at the app in the market and in the description it reads: -unlimited skype-to-skype calls and instant messaging without using your plan minutes. I also briefly read that there is a hack version of Skype to allow calling 3G without using plan minutes. But in the description of the app on the market says no plans minutes used during Skype-to-Skype. Why have a hacked version if the normal market version is fine. My question is with the current app on the market can I call/receive calls if both of us have skype account without using my plan minutes?
