Skype Mobile Makes Verizon Wireless Debut

CTIA Wireless — Skype mobile is making its much-anticipated debut today on the Verizon Wireless network.

Verizon Wireless 3G smartphone users with data plans will be able to connect with friends, family, and business colleagues around the world. This new service is available exclusively to Verizon Wireless customers.

Skype mobile uses the Verizon Wireless voice network for the wireless connection of the Skype-to-Skype calls. Users can:

  • make and receive unlimited Skype-to-Skype voice calls to any Skype contact around the globe

  • send and receive unlimited instant messages with other Skype users

  • manage the Skype contact list directly from the mobile application

  • call international phone numbers at competitive Skype calling rates

John Harrobin, senior vice president of digital media and marketing, said, “Skype mobile will change the way mobile consumers in the United States make and receive calls. With an ‘always on’ capability, Skype mobile on your 3G smartphone means you never have to miss a call or make an appointment to connect with Skype users around the world. With Skype mobile, we’re untethering Skype users from their PCs and enabling them to stay connected — on the best wireless network in the country.”

It’s initially available on nine Verizon 3G smartphones.
