After many believed Skype updated their Android app (a Verizon Wireless exclusive) to allow voice calls over pure WiFi due to an unclear description, they were faced with rejection: trying to use Skype on a WiFi-only device will still cause your phone to yell at you. The confusion came where Skype listed “Simultaneous WiFi and 3G” as one of the newest features for the app. They really meant that you wouldn’t have to disable WiFi in order to call your friends using Skype over Verizon’s data network. That makes it nothing more than a convenience feature (but one many people have been dying for, regardless).


Personally, I’m still waiting for one big feature: Skype on all Android phones. Get rid of that contract and make it happen, m’kay?
