I just use the free though.That's awesome. I think mostly the rates for non-skype users is just for those who don't have any friends on Skype, but mostly do, but others use it just for jobs.

It had a lot of connectivity problems and it just felt inferior in comparison with the Android version, which ran like a dream.My Android is brilliant and it seems like it's the better platform to run it off as I've also heard so many bad things about the iPhone as well. Just give it a try and see what you think. If you don't like it, uninstall and try and find something else!
Maybe other folks will have different experiences with the Skype iPhone app, but my experience was absolutely terrible, and I cannot recommend it.

When I first started looking into this the first thing I thought of was Skype but I was thinking that people would consider it unprofessional or something to use it. I'm glad to heard that a lot of people actually prefer it.

Can you actually get a contract for just 3G? or mobile data connection without phone calling and all that?
Any sort of video call is going to hammer your data, so WiFi connection is probably the best way. Free WiFi is available in most places these days so I'd recommend you make the use of it for this type of call.
