  • Skype Coming Tomorrow (Already out in Japan)


    Well the rumors were true. Skype really is coming out on Tuesday (it is already tuesday in Japan and they have Skype). The folks at PC World got a sneak peak so we already know what to expect.
    • Only works over WiFi
    • Calls to landlines 2.1 cents/min
    • Integrated with address book
    • Conference calling (if someone invites you)
    • Chat works over the cellular network
    • Missing SMS, video and proper conference calling, file transfer, and voicemail

      Why the hell would Skype not be in the Canadian store??? Seems like we are a 3rd world country sometimes. Always last to get. I know it must have something to do with the damn CRTC. What a joke.

      There was an update to mobilesubstrate and this now works over 3g for me using VoIPover3G. Follow the instructions from earlier in this thread. Use (com.skype.skype).

      Works great on 3G after updating mobilesubstrate and editing the Voipover3g plist.

      Made a call using the test feature with WiFi off and no crash.

      The plist can be edited using Disk aid and notepad/text edit.

      Make sure there is a comma then a space after “com.apple.MobileStore”

      The end of the string should look like this.....

      , “com.apple.MobileStore”, “com.skype.skype”);};

      Skype works over the EDGE network without problems using the April 1st version of MobileSubstrate and VoIPover3G on the first generation iPhone.

      There is a "patch" in Cydia that makes it possible to use Skype over 3G.

      There are no downgrade possible for MS. But if u delete IntelliScreen (if u have it installed) ur Skype will be fine. It was my way to get it work anyway. Hope it will help u mate.

      EDIT: 19:39 "Got it to work with IntelliScreen installed and enable now. Installed the new VoIPover 3G update and enable 20secLockscreen, Backgrounder, SBHooker-iKeyEx, VoIPover3G and WinterBoard in IS preferences Performance Boost. Works both with Edge and WiFi calls. Yeahhhhhhhhh............. at last!!!"
