We can end my speculation now - Verizon Wireless is indeed enabling Skype to work over Verizon's 3G network. Wow! This is ginormous game-changing news. It would appear the great firewall between allowing VoIP over 3G on carrier's networks is finally cracking. Verizon and Skype have announced they are enabling global Skype calling via an exclusive, easy-to-use Skype mobile offering for a variety of Verizon's 3G smartphones, which will allow you to:
  • make and receive unlimited Skype-to-Skype voice calls to any Skype user around the globe on America's most reliable wireless network;
  • call international phone numbers at competitive Skype Out calling rates;
  • send and receive instant messages to other Skype users; and
  • remain always connected with the ability to see friends' online presence.
Initially, Skype mobile will be available on millions of best-selling Verizon Wireless 3G smartphones with data plans, including the BlackBerry® Storm™ 9530, Storm2™ 9550, Curve™ 8330, Curve™ 8530, 8830 World Edition and Tour™ 9630 smartphones, as well as DROID by Motorola, DROID ERIS™ by HTC and Motorola DEVOUR™.

This is great news for VoIP and Skype fans everywhere. Your move AT&T...
