Skype who recently admitted that they have stopped development work for the Windows Mobile platform has today released an update to their popular iPhone application that allows users to make voice calls over their carrier’s 3G network.
Several carriers in Australia, have in the past blocked Skype calls from mobile phones, however this could change with Skpe set to charge for some data calls with sata being purchased from carriers.
Recently USA AT&T restricted the use of VOIP applications to Wi-Fi networks. They did this because they wanted to keep users from piggybacking their 3G data service, and consequently, would be forced to use AT&T’s mobile service instead.
Recently in Australia Skype executives said that they will charge a “small fee” on their 3G Skype feature, however, it is not yet understood just how much this fee will be. So far, reviews on this feature have been quite positive, however, there have also been reports that there is a small delay on the audio.
