All together, 20 Verizon handsets, including some pre-paid smartphone models, offer Skype Mobile and the app is "always on" so while you receive calls using Skype, you can still run some other functions on your handset. And to make things simple, the UI includes a drop down menu with images showing the flags of other countries which makes it easy to place overseas calls at a discount. The app is available in Spanish, Korean and Chinese besides the obvious English.
The Skype Mobile app can be downloaded at Media Center/Get It Now or the online media store at www.verizonwireless.com/mp3. Verizon customers can also text "SKYPE" to 2255 to get a message with the link to download Skype mobile.
