This is quite confusing. I am well aware of Skype, I use it all the time on the desktop and have SkypOut account but there is no documentation on how this works. Does the Skype application have to be running on the PC with the desktop manager? Are you using data for the call? How does it work with GPRS data rates? I am quite happy to try it but not if I have to install and uninstall a bunch of stuff, I would rather understand it better before proceeding. I already use IM+ for the other services. I look forward to hearing from you.
