Skype for Android hacked to call on 3G

Hack enables functionality missing from US app

In just a few days following Skype's Android app launch, hackers have reportedly managed to enable VoIP calling over 3G networks. Although international users could take advantage of 3G VoIP calling without using modified software, the US release restricted users to placing calls over Wi-Fi networks.

The 3G-enabled app, posted on DroidForums.net, requires users to manually install the hacked .apk file. The service works for free when placing Skype-to-Skype calls, while calling to landlines or mobile phones requires a monthly plan or per-minute payments.
