    Yes I know that you can use fring and nimbuzz, I used, but I talking about a native Skype app. With all the skype features. fring is good but it has some problem and nimbuzz too. For example on nimbuzz do not support a keypad to dial numbers, o even add new contact, and on fring you need to sit down and wait to be connected and it not the same.

    sadly, with the way it looks, probably never
    last I checked on skype's own forum, there was still no mention by anyone from skype that an iphone app is in development

    Ok now this is the end. Truphone introduces Skype calling and instant messaging to the iPhone and iPod Touch. The service is scheduled to be available to all customers during the week of Jan. 12.

    IM+
    Fring
    Nimbuzz
    Truephone & more to come.

    Anyone from Skype here in the forums? I'm one more users who is waiting for an official Skype app on the iPhone (yes, Wi-Fi only, that's all we want, so we can make SkypeOut calls and receive SkypeIn calls while in a WiFi zone).

    How long is going to wait Skype to be in the iPhone, tell any news "we are working on it or will be.

    I don't know how many loyal customers they've pissed off, but I am pretty annoyed that they put off the app for iphone for this long. The iphone has been out for almost two years, Google's G1 has only been out for a few months and Android will get Skype sooner than the iphone. :rolleyes:
