Free Skype on 3UK, today, and every day

INQ1 Silver £15 per Month, Free 3 to 3 calls at 3M

As from today, using Skype on 3UK (with the Skype on 3 application) is now free.  You don’t need to topup, and there are no data charges at all for the use of Skype.  This is not just a promotion, this is a permanent price change from 3UK.

Right now you need a 3UK-supplied handset running their Skype on 3 application, but later in the Summer 3UK will be opening this offer up to any 3G capable handset that can run their Skype on 3 application (you’ll simply need a 3UK SIM).  More news from last week here on this.

If you don’t have a 3UK phone, then either the INQ1 or the Skypephone S2 are available from the 3Store.  Of course, you could take a higher spec phone, such as the Nokia E71 instead.

We support moves like this, although maybe one day we’ll see 3UK simply bundling free internet access with all contracts…
