Simple Hack Allows American Androids To Skype Over 3G

Android users (except for those on Verizon) were understandably excited to hear that the Skype app was now available - until they discovered that it can only be used over Wi-Fi in the US. Fear not, friends, there's a hack!

A Droid Forums poster released a new version of the app allowing for free Skype-to-Skype calls over 3G, like the rest of the world is allowed. The best news is that you don't even have to root your phone to download it - instead, you just download the Sideload program onto your Windows, Mac or Linux computer and can load apps thattaway instead.
