    Hi,

    I have a girlfriend abroad who's on Live Messenger and Skype. I've got a WiFi router and a HTC Desire (Android 2.2). I'd like to use my phone to somehow be able to talk to her for free, just like we're doing it when we're both on our computers, either through WiFi or through mobile broadband, it doesn't matter much. I've browsed through other threads and found the following apps mentioned:

    *Nimbuzz: Seems to change you for calling.
    *MSN Talk: All I can do is send text messages(?).
    *Sipdroid: Seems to want some kind of account info that neither me nor my girlfriend has.
    *Google Talk (built in): All I can do is send text messages(?).

    Have I missed something? Is there another app I should be using?

    ps. I could ask my girlfriend to install another app other than Live Messenger & Skype if needed, as long as it's easy to use.

    There's no Skype client for Android. Not where I live at least.
