Skype quietly delays charges for iPhone app calling

Filed under: iPhone
According to the fine print on the Skype iPhone app, free Skype to Skype calls will last all the way until the end of 2010. Yesterday, the date was given as the end of August, but it looks like we've all gotten an extension on Skype-to-Skype calling over 3G.

People were rather agitated about Skype deciding to charge for what had been free calls, but were pleased that the updated app finally supported calls over the 3G network.

Now the prospect of payment has at least been delayed, possibly because of the outcry from users -- comments on the changes haven't been pretty. The Skype folks haven't explained the change, or the reason for the charges to begin with. We'll stay tuned, and keep our ears open for why Skype might have delayed the planned charges.TUAWSkype quietly delays charges for iPhone app calling originally appeared on The Unofficial Apple Weblog (TUAW) on Mon, 31 May 2010 14:30:00 EST.  Please see our terms for use of feeds.Read | Permalink | Email this | Comments
