Make Skype Calls Over 3G

An update to the Skype iPhone/iPod Touch app [App Store, free] has hit the app store, and now supports calling over 3G. With Skype, users can call or text anyone else using Skype for free. However, Skype has announced that they plan to start charging a monthly fee. Their app description simply states, “Call using your 3G connection. Skype-to-Skype calls on 3G are free until at least end of August 2010, after which there will be a small monthly fee (operator charges for data will still apply).”

The app may still be handy for iPod Touch users, but I don’t see why iPhone users will pay Skype to make calls if they’re already paying their phone provider.
