    Well it seems Verizon is trying to stay clear of the high bandwidth demands of users accessing Skype over 3G and will not allow Skype for the upcoming Galaxy Tab to support it. This news comes hot off the press over at PCMag.com.
    Now there are two ways of solving these things:

    • 1) Roll over and allow Verizon to do this and just use alternative software like Fring or something similar that works over 3G for free.
    • 2) Make a request in Xeudoxus's forum asking nicely for a solution to this minor setback.
    No matter what happens, I am sure we can find other ways to use Skype over 3G even if Verizon doesn’t like it.
