    How do we get around that? I’m rooted, as are a lot of people who use this site, I’d suspect. Is there a 3G Unrestrictor type program like I used on jailbroken iPhone?

    I still have the original Skype app/apk from before the exclusivity with Verizon Wireless began and the Skype-Fring fallout so e mail me people if you’d like the app as the version I use work’s over 3G as well as WiFi. I can’t say whether or not it will work on the HTC EVO 4G or Samsung Epic 4G seeing that I use a HTC Hero myself. BTW, I installed the new version of Skype and I don’t see a different between it or the older version.

    Ray, I use a Google Nexus One at AT&T. Can you send me the apk that works over 3G? Just click contact on my site after clicking on my name. I don’t want to put my email on this public comment page (spam harvesters). Thanks.
