IM+ Talk Beta v4.3 Testing Out Skype VoIP Calls Over 3G and EDGE

skype_bb_screenshot1 Shape let us know that they are testing out a beta of IM+ Talk for BlackBerry which will enable Skype calls over 3G and EDGE networks. They currently allow for half duplex (think walkie talkie) calls over Wi-Fi but the new version is testing those same calls over your 3G and EDGE connection. I am not sure if EDGE data is enough for a solid phone call but who knows.

There is a growing number of VoIP apps for BlackBerry which allow for full duplex (normal phone call) calls so I am hoping IM+ will add that in the future. We have yet to see a Skype client for BlackBerry that actually works over data networks instead of the sham VoIP Verizon is using.

You can pick up the new beta of IM+ Talk at this link on Shape’s website or catch the full features of the app on their product page.

  1. Very exciting to hear about this, but have the same error msg for this app as I have for a few apps. Each version of OS 6 for the 9650 such issues are less and less, so many a new OS 6 build will fix this, but regardless the error is:

    Error starting im_skype: Error loading module ‘im_skype’ VerifyError.

  2. working fine on my torch but i wonder why there is not an official free! version of skype and they just have it for android iphone and others

  3. Works fine my 9700 bold os 5.0

  4. Works fine my bold 9700 os 5.0
