    My girlfriend just got an iPhone 4 with Telus, but she was very disappointed that they didn't have the Nexus One. I told her she should get the desire if she wants the Nexus, as they are very similar.

    One thing she likes about the iPhone 4 is that she can use her skype account (to make calls to other skype users AND phones (as she pays skype monthly for that service) with it.

    I just wanted to ask if anyone knew if the Desire can do this as well, or not?

    Nope I have a Telus Desire and the phone is currently not supported by Skype.

    Sorry, Skype is unavailable for your mobile. We add new handsets all the time so check back soon.

    Thanks for the reply. It's disappointing that they allow the iPhone to be able to use this and not Android devices. I wonder who's pulling the strings here, Apple or the carriers, like Telus

    There's an app called nimbuzz which suggests it allows users to make calls using skype. I oblt use the chat feature so can't speak to how it works for calls.
