    i've read how people have had trouble with skype mobile because of the resolution but in addition to that, i couldn't even get it to connect. it just kept churning. i was thinking that the resolution issue would be no big deal as long as it worked - that i could deal with it for now.

    has anyone else gotten it to connect?

    look, Skype Mobile, imo has always been lousy--the client is just too big, slow and blah.

    Look for "fring" under the software sticky at the top. Works much better imo, is free and loads just fine (plus you get much more stuff).

    Fring is spyware. They track your usage and send you things you may be interested in. Read their privacy policy.

    Other than that fring looks good.

    I've never had a problem

    Just like any other site, use a dummy address or a dedicated spam email account (mine is hotmail or yahoo)--I thought everyone does this?

    The program works well, there are no ads, I don't get sent anything and they don't monitor conversations.

    Seems no worse than using AIM or anything by Google.

    it's working on my end for both networks.

    Really? I think their privacy statement, while not specifically saying it, may imply that they do.

    If you are talking about Skype Out, I am having the same problem.
