To be honest it isn't a real issue now as 3 have there "eat all you want data" promotion. A real bargain with the 39 euro phone (which is great entry smart phone) and for every 20 euro top up get free data / skype / texts and weekend calls + an extra 10 euro credit for life. My understanding is though that the data promotion is only there till end of January and that skype out only works on international calls - which is Ok as most calls would be to UK friends anyway.
So happy out.
Thanks again for all your help.
You need to download Skype from market place and Skype from planet 3:
Skype from marketplace: Most up to date version, works on Wifi
Planet 3 Skype: 3s own custom version works over 3G and allows you to use the free calls over 3G
