Back in February, Verizon said that it would bring Skype to a range of select smartphones starting March – and, well, the largest US mobile carrier is keeping its promise.
Starting March 25 (this Thursday), Skype mobile will be available to Verizon customers who have a data plan and own one of the following smartphones: BlackBerry Storm 9530, BlackBerry Storm2 9550, BlackBerry Curve 8330, BlackBerry Curve 8530, BlackBerry 8830 World Edition, BlackBerry Tour 9630, Motorola Droid, HTC Droid Eris and Motorola Devour.
You will be able to get Skype mobile either via your PC (from Verizon or Skype), or by texting “SKYPE” to 2255 to receive the link on your smartphone. Additionally, Android users will find the Skype mobile app in Android Market.
Verizon’s Skype mobile app will allow users to make and receive Skype to Skype calls worldwide, chat with other Skype users, and call international phone numbers at low rates.
