  1.

The two companies have built a new always-on application called Skype Mobile, which will enable free and unlimited calls between Skype members, cheaper international rates with Skype Out and instant messaging.

    I hear that you will only get free calls if it's out of the country, so basically everybody needs skype or this is pointless...

  4. This is not unheard of, the 3 mobile network in the UK has been carrying skype for free for at least two years. No data plan is needed.
