    my setup

    a skype acc with credit and online #.

    tested on my pre2 with a Tmobile sim card, and a galaxy s captivate w/o sim card

    1. it seems skype on pre 2 won't work w/o mobile network being on?

    2. when calling my skype online #, pre 2 forward the call to my Tmobile #, which constitute calling from my skype to a land-line, therefore a connection fee is added, plus the calling rate. While this is completely free on captivate.

    Did I miss something? or this is just ridiculous and sad?

    Are you using 2.1.0 or 2.2.4? Skype works via WiFi or 3G on my Pre 2 (VZW 2.2.4)

    especially if your trying or using it, while on a pre paid! No 3g or 4g with pre on their netwok, your stuck with slow motion 2g.

    Cleavin, you have something configured terribly wrong if you're calling your Skype # and it's ending up on your cell line.

    what is correct configure? I just added skype account in the account manager and in the skype app, logged in.

    what else should I do?

    I am hoping that when I am at a place w/o cell signal, i can just do free wifi calling. It obviously would not work if the skype is somehow tied to the mobile network.

    PS. when I check my skype acc, it says "call forward" to my TM cell number.

    PS2. I did turn on the airplane mode and then turned on wifi, I want to test if I can rely on wifi alone to get calls from people to the skype on my pre2. and it did not work.

    2.2.4 wifi

    I am not saying it doesn't work, I am saying it costs when it should be free on my GSM and it needs the cell work connected to work.

    If you turn off VZW network, then use wifi alone, can people call you on your pre2's skype # for free?

    Thats not true. they do have prepaid, no contract 4G plan, in fact, $60 for 2G of 4G speed and remaining unlimited (slow) data, unlimited text and minutes.

    And TM now has a pretty good phone for their prepaid plan too, samsung exhibit II 4G.

    It is impossible for a pre2 to get anything above 2G on tmobile network.

    Okay, the call forward number is when you're offline. Open the the messaging app and check your status - Is it set to "Available"?

    I am aware of that. I have another dedicated Tmobile 4G MHP.

    I'm pretty positive that should work.
