3G Calling for Skype on iPhone

Skype 2.0 for iPhone can now be used for call over 3G.

Said to be the most-requested feature of the Skype 2.0 for iPhone, making calls over 3G just landed in the applications store.

After August 2010, however, Skype will start charging a “small monthly fee” for use of the 3G calling feature.

Even though subscribers are already paying AT&T (in the U.S.) for their data plan, Skype is throwing in an extra fee.

Questions still abound whether this plan is Skype’s own doing, or if the network operators had a hand in trying to make the Skype app a less desirable option.
