Skype 3.0 (iOS)


Video calling between iOS devices and desktops. Wi-Fi calls sound excellent. Well-designed interface. Can create an account, add credits, and SMS or IM contacts right from the app

Video calls can take a while to connect. Picture quality and frame rate on video calls leaves much to be desired

Skype 3.0 iPhone App Review


Looking into the new features of Skype 3.0. Find out whether Skype video calling on iPhone is a pretty good alternative to free Skype-to-Skype video calls. Read on to find out whether Skype 3.0 delivers high quality video calls over 3G.

With a slight shortcoming on video quality, which is not really Skype's fault, Skype 3.0 is definitely the best option for video calling on iPhone right now. The fact that Skype-to-Skype video calls are free and with decent video quality and good audio...

3 Mobile Skypephone


Boasting the ability to make free Skype-to-Skype calls and send Skype instant messages, the 3 Mobile Skypephone also doubles as a regular, 3G mobile p...

Skype integration, compact size and design, ease of use, decent phone features

Build quality, battery life

At this asking price, the Skypephone is certainly great value for money. It's not perfect but the Skype integration is superb and easy to use and the rest of the phone works well.

3 "Skypephone" mobile phone


Will this change mobile phones forever?

If you are a big Skype user then the chance to take your contacts with you will be really appealing, offering you 2 hours of free calls every day to other Skype users.

Skype 3 for iPhone review


Skype 3 offers an easier, cleverer way for iPhone users to make video calls over Wi-Fi and 3G.

Skype 3 for iPhone is an impressive update. Making a call over 3G is great to have as an option, but can result in lower call quality. A one-minute video call can also use 2 to 3MB of your monthly data allowance, so you may not want to make video calls...

3 Skypephone


Yup, free Skype calls routed through the 3 network, to and from a candybar mobile phone. Sounds good, but is it?

There needs to be at least £10 of credit in the phone if you buy it on Pay As You Go. It costs £49.99 on PAYG, (it is free on pay monthly contracts). So you are looking at a £60 initial outlay. Calls to landlines and mobiles are 12p a minute and texts...

Skype is a Voice over IP (VoIP) telephone service that uses your PC to send calls over the internet rather than through normal telephone networks.

3 Skypephone review


With this handset, 3 has provided its subscribers with a great way to make free calls to Skype users while on the move. It's just a bonus that the phone also happens to be so small, light and so easy to use

Great Skype software ; Easy to use ; Slim and light design

Average camera ; Screen could be better

Conclusion It's hard to complain about this handset, as it's relatively cheap at around £50 pay as you go (or free on contract) and provides a very straightforward way to make free calls to other Skype users while on the move. Of course, you can't use...
