A new service called SkypeForiPhone connects a Skype subscribers account to their iPhone through a web page on the phone's Safari browser.... We tried out the service and although we got the system to load on our phone - and even place a call, we couldn't hear or speak.

A new service called SkypeForiPhone connects a Skype subscribers account to their iPhone through a web page on the phone's Safari browser. Theoretically, an iPhone user could avoid AT&T charges by using this service when in an area provided by WiFI (this service would be available in an Edge area too). We tried out the service and although we got the system to load on our phone – and even place a call, we couldn't hear or speak. A slight problem, no? Nevertheless, a very interesting development allowing users to choose the way they make their calls.
