    Hi, i just downloaded the Skype App from 3 and tried a Skype to Skype conference call and i think it works really well :)

    the only problem is when i log on, it doesnt have all the contacts i have on skype on my computer. is there a quick way to import all my skype contacts onto this app?

    Hi

    It should sync all your contacts instantly unless they cannot be contacted via any means by skype from your hero.

    Do Skype calls count as data usage? I've never bothered with it because I thought it would work out more expensive than using free minutes!

    i use skype and it does not take any data from your allowance neither does windows live messenger

    when i first got it i thought that cant be right but a 2hr skype call later no data or charges at all and probably used skype for over 40 hrs without any charges

    What is skype using? I'm confused - all the ratings in the market are absolutely awful because they claim it goes against international minutes.

    I wanted it to use it through wifi or my unlimited data package but that doesn't seem to be the case.

    This is really confusing can anyone clarify what Skype is using?

    My dad has an iPhone and he can use it through Wifi - but all the android reviews say we can't use it for Wifi. Why would they do that?

    skype is totally free for 3 network users it does not charge you or take any of your data but you have to have credit on phone / on be on time with your contract

    as i say i have used it for an easy 40hrs+ and never been charged or taken any data

    also free windows live messenger i use it for probably 3 hrs a day on my phone when im at work and have done for the past 4 months with no charge

    I just had a hour phone conversation with 3 the network for charging me for using skype.

    Basically, I have the HTC Desire HD, Skype on 3.
    Skype is free to make free SKYPE to SKYPE calls

    Skype requires Data to connect to Skype - which is part of data allowance, not the "skype to skype" call part...

    My question was - HOW CAN IT BE FREE, if your charging me for data. their response was, they provide you will a little extra data allowance to cover this. BUT the moment you go other your allowance (in my case, 3GB) normal data allowance charges occur (in my case, 5hours =
