Yes, there is no OTA for Verizon devices (at this time), however, the meta doctor application will take the existing HP/Palm Doctor and transform it, to function on other devices.

For the most part webOS 2.1.0 for Pre2 is the same, some went to webOS 2.1.0 (WR/ROW-build 108), when Verizon was still at webOS 2.0.1, they got OTA to webOS 2.2.4. Compare the Verizon build of webOS 2.1.0 (124) there are a few differences mostly carrier apps, but a few stock apps to.
Skype Mobile is part of Verizon's build, which was not part of the WR/ROW builds.
Skype (direct) is part of webOS 2.2.4 works over Data or WiFi, Skype Mobile only works over Verizon's data network.
