Can skype be run on the 3G phones using either wifi or 3G without jailbreaking? If I can avoid jailbreaking I would prefer it..

...from now on.

Considering that "jailbreaking" one's iPhone involves a fairly recent coinage (new words, or words applied in new ways), all can be forgiven easily--especially since the authors are making things up as they go.

The voice quality over 3G is excellent and I never have to worry about keeping track of minutes used because I use skype to make all outgoing calls. I got the North America plan for skype - I think I paid something around $20 for the whole year.
I just did purplerain, installed cydia, then found what package containd viopover3g. I ran that program, rebooted and tried skype with my wifi clearly turned off and it worked..

Why are people downloading it from a US store when it is available for Canadians?
