"6 min skype to skype call cost me £0.87"

February 17, 2010  |  By dracodream

 |  Version: iSkoot for Skype (BlackBerry) 1.1.60

Pros

None that I was aware of.

Cons

High cost considering skype to skype has always been free as far as I can remember. First time I have ever had to pay for a skype chat!!!!!

Summary

This is the second posting I have posted, for some reason my first was removed. Perhaps because its not profitable to let the customer know they are going to pay standard mobile rates for poor quality connections. I have pay as you go T-Mobile with unlimited internet yet my 6.5 minute skype to skype call was charged at £0.87. I assume that a contract phone would have minutes from the allowance removed.
What a total rip off this application and the company who run it are pulling.

"It doesn't load."

January 06, 2010  |  By patronella

 |  Version: iSkoot for Skype (BlackBerry) 1.1.60

Pros

Nothing. I can't get it to work.

Cons

I'm not very technically minded and expect when you click download, files download and there's a button to click through to.

Summary

I tried to download on my computer and phone and got a weird file both times! Can someone please direct me to do this properly???

"Works well as a substitute when on the road"

December 22, 2009  |  By Hammhawk

 |  Version: iSkoot for Skype (BlackBerry) 1.1.60

Pros

iSkoot works great to be able to call or IM your Skype contacts without having to be online on the computer. The IM works well and all chat conversation histories are visible in the Skype chat logs on the computer. Calls are easy to make as well.

Cons

Problem receiving Skype calls on my Blackberry when the Skype account call forwarding feature is on. Calls go to my Skype voicemail not to my Blackberry. Call conversations are a bit distorted. Install may change some of you Skype profile settings.

Summary

All in all a good substitute for Skype while on the road or traveling abroad. Well worth the price. I get more use out of the BB IM or my text messaging service than Skype IM on my Blackberry because of the problems I experience with the Skype call forwarding. I highly recommend iSkoot for outbound Skype calls... It will save you a lot of money making long distance calls.

"It works fine enough on my BB storm 9530."

December 07, 2009  |  By saintsfan71

 |  Version: iSkoot for Skype (BlackBerry) 1.1.60

Pros

Ability to access Skype on my phone, ease of use.

Cons

Call clarity is somewhat muddled, takes a while to load contacts.

Summary

I like it because I can call my Skype contacts without being on a computer. The ability to be mobile and still keep in touch is excellent.
