For all they know you're an American travelling in Canada.

Or.. You can try calling the same number from their desktop client (officially available in Canada) and if it doesn't work it would give you some more leverage.

There is no differnece between cell numbers and landline numbers in North America like their is in Europe, Australia, New Zealand, etc... I have called several people on their cells with Skype for iPhone, no probs! (I use pre-purchased SkypeOut credit, not a subscription plan.)

When the iPhone 3.0 is software update is released, does anyone know if I'll be able to have Skype running in background and show status as available (to receive calls on my US phone number)? And without draining the battery too much? Thanks.

works for me. Adrian, I was having problems until I realized I wasn't typing +1 then the area code and number.

Since then, no problemos - on any land or mobile line.

Try that?

Interesting development. It only doesn't work on the iPhone. When I use Skype over my computer to call the exact same number it works.

have you tried:
logging out of skype (on your iphone), rebooting the phone then logging back in?

i also deleted the app from the phone, re-installed it and it worked.

I have no idea if that was the fix or just that I was being a moron when typing

I see beta 3 release 3 is out now and I hear it blocks the Skype over 3G loophole. I havent upgraded from beta 3 release 2 yet. Might just wait.

You were a little paranoid about losing your Canadian apps and needlessly signed-out and signed back in again. No need to. YOU CAN INDEED HAVE TWO ITUNES ACCOUNTS CONCURRENT ON YOUR IPHONE.
I was, as it didn't work for me the first time, and I had to reload my apps. (Luckily I didn't have to buy everything again). But yes, it worked fine the 2nd time around, and now I can update with both accounts running on my phone, as you mention.
