Default Are there any alternatives to Skype/iSkoot?

Please Login to Remove!

Just wondering if there are any other apps out there for cheap overseas calling. I downloaded iSkoot and am using it, but it's been a PITA so far. It's very moody - sometimes it works great and sometimes it just refuses to connect. I don't think it's the AT&T network, for some reason it just seems like maybe it doesn't like the Bold. Does anyone have any suggestions for alternatives that you are using and work well. Thanks!!

I use iSkoot, but it drains my battery so fast if it's in the background. It keeps on checking the connectivity and refreshes too much. I tried other ones, but none are good. They all have a call back which uses your minutes. I tried IM+ Skype Trial and that seems to be the better one.
