Skype For iPhone Now Available in the US, Has VoIP over 3G With 3.0 Firmware

Apple’s just about finished rolling out Skype for iPhone, and now US residents can go download the VoIP app for themselves.

Our quick test showed that voice quality is quite good—definitely on par or better than actual 3G calling over AT&T’s network—and connects rather quickly. It’s unfortunate that 2.2.1 doesn’t have background notifications, so there’s no way somebody could Skype you unless you had the app open all the time.

In an iPhone to iPhone Wi-Fi call test, Phone A heard Phone B perfectly clear, but the person on Phone A sounded like a robot with enunciation problems from Phone B’s side. iPhone to Laptop worked perfectly fine, however.
