Yes, you need to have your PC on and Skype application running

Are you using data for the call?

No, only SkypeOut units are used (not VoIP).

How does it work with GPRS data rates?

IM+ for Skype Software uses GPRS connection only for keeping online and for text messaging. Each message is about 0,5 kB.

Thanks Victoria, that is what I was afraid of. I use Skype on my desktop at home but my work computer where my BlackBerry is installed with the desktop manager doesn't allow peer to peer applications like Skype to be installed so I can't use it then.
