Skype extend Free 3G calls on iPhone to 2011

Skype launched it’s update VoIP app over the weekend by releasing version 2 of the software. New features in the Skype update included the ability to make VoIP calls over 3G rather than being restricted to just Wi-Fi like the previous version.

However, when installing the software update and running it for the first time, a message popped up saying calls over 3G are currently free (ie, Skype to Skype), but that in the near future from August 2010 a small monthly fee would be charged for the service.

Skype has changed their minds on this and is now extending the free period from August 2010 to the end of 2010 and will start charging the small monthly fee beginning next year.

Skype as of yet has not announced how much the monthly fee will be, but they have said it is a small fee, perhaps indicating just a couple of dollars a month. We won’t know for sure though until official announcements are made.

When we do find out we’ll update you on the site.

    Time to look at finding an alternative then, it might only be micro payments, but I already pay once for my 3G connectivity.
