Question skype on bb's with wifi

Please Login to Remove!

has anyone seen decent skype or other voip software for BB? it'd be great since skype has cheap int'l rates and i have the unlimited US calling plan on it.

i found a couple of skype clients but they suck. one (WebMessenger) requires me to run skype with a plugin on a desktop; but their plugin requires windows and i run only linux on all of my machines. another one (IM+) doesn't help at all -- every time i try to make a call with skype it calls my mobile back (so it doesn't save me any minutes at all !) i don't get why anyone would want that.

are there clients at all that actually use the phone and do it entirely by software on the phone, using the wifi network so i can completely go off the mobile network and without even a plan, hypothetically, use the hardware to make a skype call?
