I use IM+ for Skype Software and it is actually not as buggy as some of you may think. I had to make a few calls overseas and the connection was great and with my unlimited plan and Skype unlimited on top of that these calls where pretty much free.

By the way, SkypeIn is now supported

All IM+ Skype voice calls use Skype credit, which is not "pretty much free".

I guess this is not a VOIP application... In other words, skype calls are not made over the data network. i heard other non BB phones can do this.

EDIT: I just downloaded the application. Super nice interface. Successfully logged in and downloaded my skype contacts and skypeout numbers.

What is this if it's not VOIP? I don't understand why a Skype call would use up cell phone minutes? If you're using minutes what's the point especially if you're over seas?

It IS a VOIP app which means you DON"T use your minutes, but you do have to buy the skypeout (3$ per month).
i'll wait for the jivetalk support since the iskoot will eventually charge you anyway.

Cool! Thanks what I need - does it work with skypeout and skypein or just out?

Does it work well enough? I was told by a friend that GPRS is too slow for this.

It is not voip - you are speaking to skype people on your regular BB phone, using regular minutes, plus using skype credit. It is great for calling skype contacts who have no regular phone, and for making cheap skype-out calls. But I use it mostly to IM my skype friends. And I tried iSkoot but found it far inferior to the latest version of IM+ Skype.

Iskoot drains the bb battery quite faster and I feel the bb quite slow, however the app is faster than previous version
