    Overtime I open Skype it tells me that it can only be used on VZW in the US. It redirects me to a webpage and that's all i get. Tried uninstall and reinstall. Am I missing something?

    Perhaps an obvious question, but what is your timezone set to?

    I found skype to be worthless... apparently vzw has it locked down so that it only functions over 3g, and the only reason I can imagine using it (since I really never make international calls) would be to call over wifi when I didn't have voice service (which means I probably don't have data either...). I find it's aggressively disabling wifi (when that's my only data connection available) to be basically malware-like... Worthless app. I uninstalled it.
