Skype 2.5 On Sprint Touch Pro

Has anyone tried the newest Skype 2.5 Beta on their TP with Sprint? I noticed some people in their forums were having problems with using it over 3G and the release notes also said "Log into Skype from any WiFi zone to make free calls and send instant messages to anyone else on Skype, anywhere in the world, any day of the week" in their release notes, conveniently leaving out 3G. I can't really test it myself because i only have 1x, but I use skype a lot when traveling and I'd like to upgrade since they state that they improved the sound. Thanks for any feedback.

Re: Skype 2.5 On Sprint Touch Pro

I tried it on my Mogul, and it worked just fine with the wired headset (and also without if you don't mind that the voice comes from the speaker phone).
But I will look around (also would like to know) if there is any way to make it work with the bluetooth headsets!

I wished there was a front camera so we could use the camera like a webcam and type at the same time as on a computer...

Re: Skype 2.5 On Sprint Touch Pro

Don't think you'll have much luck with the bluetooth. I've used skype on mobile for a while. I had bt headsets and I seem to recall my S9s working for both voice and sound, but I'm now convinced that I am remembering wrong. Sound definitely comes through on bt with past skype releases, but it uses the phone mic.

And just a little clarification, you're using it over EVDO, right? Anyone out there using it on the TP?

Re: Skype 2.5 On Sprint Touch Pro

I use it. It works OK on 3G. There's a little choppiness at times, if you're moving fast.

No difference. I prefer downloading the .cab, that way I can keep them on my mem card in case of a crash.

2.5 beta has been working fine for me over EVDO. Does get choppy while driving around though.
