    So THAT'S the contradiction vs. it works with WiFi only vs. it works with 3G, WiFi limitation is only for SkypeOut..... I wonder if someone could figure out a way to thether the phone wirelessly to itself lol

    No doubt done at the request of the US carrier cartel to protect their lucrative revenues.

    What would SkypeOut charge for a call to China? 1c a minute. What would Verizon charge? $3 a minute maybe?

    It would probably disappear up it's own SIM slot.. haha
