Skype App Coming to Verizon Wireless in March- Has Hell Frozen Over?
Verizon Wireless and Skype just announced that Verizon is going to carry skype calls over its network starting in March. It may require a data plan, but those international calls may have gotten a lot cheaper.
Seriously? This seems such an about-face from the wireless carrier that was known to lock everything down and make you pay for any small incremental benefit (I’m looking at you, ringtones from the V-shop). I’m skeptically optimistic at this point. And I hope it continues.
Here’s the initial phones with Skype support:
- DROID by Motorola
- DROID ERIS by HTC
- Motorola DEVOUR
- BlackBerry Storm 9530
- Storm2 9550
- Curve 8330
- Curve 8530
- 8830 World Edition
- Tour 9630
