Using SoonR to make free Skype calls + desktop browsing!
 
This is an AMAZING and FREE application for Mac (and yes, even PC) users. It lets you browse your entire computer, nomatter where you are in the world! Just have to leave the application open & your Mac running while you're away. Then, just point your phone's browser to the soonr website, sign in to your account, then BAM! Your entire computers hard drive at your fingertips!!

It also lets you make free outgoing Skype calls, without putting anything on your phone. Just leave Skype running on your Mac & go to your SoonR account on your phone's browser & choose from your contact list to make a call. I tried it on my 8100 & it works GREAT! Sound quality is actually very very good.

Anyways, I didnt see much about SoonR here so wanted to let everyone know how great this is. Cheers!

dont forget EQO
 
Eqo is similar in functionality. Sort of buggy with my 8700g but works. also has IM for jabber/gtalk, aim, msn, yahoo, icq and skype. You can make skype out calls too.

Eqo is mac compatible (and for M$ too) and freeeeee!

That looks cool. Do you know how the IM feature works? Does it use data or sms?? I need something that uses data because I dont have an sms plan.
