5 thoughts on “Skype 3G iPhone: 5M Downloads — But What's the Usage?”

  1. As I mentioned in my blog a jailbroken iPhone can make Skype calls over 3G with no fees through the use of an app called 3G Unrestrictor. I haven’t upgraded to the latest version yet because I fear Skype may detect 3G Restrictor and block me from using this functionality any more.

    I read a comment somewhere that someone did upgrade and lost their VoIP over 3G functionality for their jailbroken iPhone. If I have some time I’ll test it to see if that’s indeed true.

    For now, looks like I’ve lost the ability to click ‘Upgrade All’ apps since that’ll upgrade my Skype. What a pain to individually upgrade every app except Skype.

  2. I should clarify. I was saying that the OLDER Skype version for the iPhone can make Skype over 3G calls when used in combo with a jailbroken iPhone and 3G Unrestrictor. It has been available for quite some time.

    But I read that if I upgrade to the NEWER version, I’ll lose that capability.

  3. Setting the US aside, in countries where mobile operators charge hefty fees for voice… this is incredible!
