Skype is only available for Verizon customers.
There is no indication this will change any time soon.

I use iSkoot

But when calling your Skype contact, you will incur cost of a local call. Not bad as I have unlimited local call minutes.

Incoming doesnt work though.. you need to setup skype credit etc.

I thought they shut down iSkoot. See here: iSkoot for Skype

FTA: "iSkoot for Skype will be shut down on January 20, 2011

Current users will be able to connect to iSkoot for Skype until January 20, 2011.

As of today, downloads are no longer available from iSkoot and no new user accounts can be accepted.

Sincere thanks to everyone who has used this service for your support and feedback over the years."

Bottom line: No Skype unless you have a Verizon BlackBerry, subject to their many limitations.

BB Bold 9700 and Torch VOIP work fine on Wifi using $20 app from VoIP Software for providers | Mobile VoIP calls for Blackberry, IPhone, Android, Symbian | VoipSwitch. I've used for over 6 months on both models without issue.

Are there any delays when a sip call is initiated? Can I use my own provider with the software? Do they have a demo / trial period?

Thanks for any answers.. I sure wish we could have a true sip client like I got for my wife's android phone.. Been looking for one for a while..
