Default Skype enabled mobile phone??

Please Login to Remove!

My Mrs has a "3" skype phone. Basically its a pay as you go phone but she gets free skype to skype calls and free skype IM.

We are looking to upgrade her phone but she doesnt want to lose the Free skype or go on a contract. Has anyone got any suggestions? If we use the "3" sim card in an unlocked WM or symbian phone does anyone know if you would still get the free skype?

i have had a look around all over the place but cant find any information either on the "3" website or skypes.

Most unlocked phones don't work with 3 sims for reasons that are unclear. Even if it did work with the phone, you wouldn't have 3's tailored skype app.

Most Nokias can run Skype natively now.
