3's offer of a free sim is back - but this time, once you put your free 3 sim into any unlocked 3g phone with a simple free download you can start making free skype-skype calls over their network - without even topping up! Be quick, this offer proberbly won't last long as the last one didn't.

Usual Sim Card Price - £1.99

Edit - PLUS!!! If you keep your number - you get £10 free credit!

I have a question folks, will skype to skype calls still be free in you're dialing from abroad, or will international roaming charges apply?
I'm going on holiday to Greece next month and I'm tempted to take this sim and leave my o2 at home.

Unfortunately not...

" Skype on 3 is unavailable when you are roaming abroad. If you want to use Skype when you're overseas we recommend using it on a computer - you can still use the same login details as you do on your 3 mobile. "

When my Sim(s) arrive I'll check out whether they work on my W910i. It says on the website that it is compatable with the W910i and that they will send the application for free - but we'll see. Fingers crossed - will keep you updated :).

Thanks, already got that and you are right that it has skype but can't take advantage of the free skype from 3 as you need a skype from them with their settings in and they have only done this for phones they sell. Though fring is a great app for a freebie

From 3 mobile
If you put a 3 SIM card into a 3G* mobile from another network you can still make calls, send messages and access the internet, but you can't access Skype.
If you put a 3 SIM card into a 3G* mobile from another network you can still make calls, send messages and access the internet, but you can't access Skype.
We’re working hard to fix this. Our aim is that over the next few months customers will be able to insert their 3 SIM card into any popular unlocked 3G mobile and automatically get the right settings for the 3 network. Plus you’ll also receive a link to download the correct version of Skype on 3 – so you can have free Skype-to-Skype minutes forever.
It is important to note that the Skype mobile client must be the version which comes directly from 3 (rather than any other source) in order to be able to get free Skype-to-Skype calls forever.
* 3G basically means a high-speed network that lets you do so much more than just calling and texting. Find out more about 3G here.

Basically you can't get free skype on a non three mobile phone yet as you need their specific version of skype mobile.

Well you should be able to at some point and I wouldn't be surprised if a iphone version of 3 mobiles skype is one of the first out given the popularity of the iphone. I think they will try to get a version out for most mobile OS this summer from what their info says.
#25
hmm good deal shame about having to have a 3 phone regardless of having a 3g phone.. any ideas on the cheapest three 3g payg phone anyone..?
#26
I have skype on Nokia 95 from Orange after unlock. All you need is to go to my Three on mobile and download skype from a link there and then it should work fine.

Skype to skype calls are free (excluding data).

Edit: misread you post yes you are right skype to skype is free excluding data.

But when 3 release their version of skype (connects directly to the 3 network with no wifi options) for people on unocked phones then the data usage is free as well as the call. I am lucky manged to get a version of the software for my nokia 5800 so now have free skype calls on it (no data cost), plus contrary to what 3 are saying it works with symbian s60 5th (touch support), though I had to use a virtual phone keypad for part of the installation.
