First buy unlimited usa/canada for $30 a year (forget that $2.99 a month this one is better)

 

next buy an online number that is local to your area. say you live in detroit you would click united states>michigan>area code bla bla detroit then buy it for $30 additional a year. Give this number to the people you want to call you

 

now you are set up fo unlimited calling for a year for just $60 total. next you must go to the desktop version of skype and in the setting check the box that allows people other than your contacts to call you.

 

Now ps vita has a data plan..anytime you use the use skype or internet of any kind it will use the data until you are down to zero. when you get to zero you must replenish the plan for $30

Glad to have a confirmation that the PSVita will have Skype. If you are using wifi and calling to another computer it should be free. On 3G of course you will burn up data time.

I am also very interested in this. Does anyone know when the App for SKype is set to be released on the PSN or will it be some other form of download? If so, where from and how?
