The official skype client has not been released to my knowledge, correct me if I'm wrong but I think I read that when it is released it will only allow calls via the cellular network

That is what I have found- how stupid is that? Why would I need an app to see my skype list if I have my phone and I am using the cell network anyway? What are they thinking? What is the use in that?

Okay, screw skype. If you are like me and have tmob you can just add their "Unlimited UMA Calling" for only $10. It isnt worth screwing with a skype client and dealing with them. I dont know why I didnt think about that before.

Best of luck.
