    Using GV + Sipgate + Fring + GV Dial.

    That's GREAT! Did you following any "How-To"s or have any documentation for the rest of us. I've been intrigued by this topic for some time.

    Do I have to have service when I make a phone call or does it go directly through Wifi connection. I may be misunderstanding this whole concept..

    I just use Fring and a sip provider (freecall). Cheap and helps this non-world phone make calls over wifi when out of the country. Heck even my ipod touch can use fring to make phone calls.

    (Stay away from Skype these days)

    Just go into addons in Fring. Select SIP. Put in your username password and sip server. Then go to the Fring dialer and dial a number and press SIP. Works well for me over 3g or WiFi. Ymmv based on connection and provider. I think video calls only work over Skype. I don't have any sip video buddies to test.

    It used to work over WiFi to make calls. No more. It's basically just a chat app now not a way to make calls when there's no cdma service. That's the whole point of it imo.

    Fring 2.1 spams your contacts. Use 2.0

    There are two Skype version out, on regular Skype and the other Verizon's version of Skype that doesn't allow wifi calling. I had the regular Skype set up just a month ago on my old Eris to make wifi only calls and it worked just fine. I also have Skype installed on my laptop and I just used it to call my cell phone through our company's wifi network so it still works.

    Edit: But Skype isn't free you have to pay for your minutes but they are very cheap. Skype to Skype calls are still free.

    If you haven't figured it out yet, try my video at freewifiphonecalls.com for setting up your Droid. It isn't set up for free international calls, but I'm working on getting it set up with the cheapest rates possible, directly through the dial pad. The quality is great and there's almost no lag at all.
