Verizon Wireless adds more handsets to Skype-enabled lineup
Posted: 18-Aug-2010 [Source: Verizon Wireless]

[Verizon Wireless adds to its lineup of 3G smartphones that feature Skype mobile including the LGenV TOUCH, LG Chocolate Touch, and the Samsung Reality.]

Basking Ridge, NJ -- As college students hunker down for the fall semester, Verizon Wireless now offers Skype mobile™ on many 3G Multimedia phones, making it easy to affordably stay connected with friends and family. The LG enV® TOUCH, LG Chocolate Touch™ and Samsung Reality™ join Verizon Wireless' strong lineup of 3G Smartphones that already feature Skype mobile.

Skype mobile helps students on a budget stay in touch, whether they're starting at a new school or returning as upperclassmen. Skype mobile also offers a simple, convenient and cost-effective way for parents to keep up with their kids who venture overseas for a term abroad, eliminating the need to set a time to be at a computer to receive the Skype call from junior.

* Bon Voyage – If students need help preparing for their time abroad before they go, they can use Skype mobile to talk with professors about how to balance studies and travel. Skype mobile also offers language support in Spanish, Korean and simple Chinese, helping students keep in touch with new international friends after they return home.

* Close Quarters – Living in a dorm room with a stranger can be nerve-racking, but students can use Skype mobile to get to know future roommates, making the transition to dorm life easier. Whether they want to plan the dorm room décor or bond over favorite movies, Skype mobile lets them chat for hours and become fast friends.

* Dark or White? – Calculus class? Check. Biochemistry test? Aced it. How to separate dark and white loads? For some students laundry is stressful. When a terrible stain hits a favorite shirt, students can use Skype mobile to call home for laundry expertise until the spot is only a memory.

* Don't Let Summer Love Fade Away – Maintaining a relationship while apart is tough, but with an "always on" capability, Skype mobile means students never have to miss a call while away from their computers.

* B.F.F. – Making friends at a new school is important, but staying in touch with friends from home is too. Best friends can send and receive unlimited instant messages with other Skype users to stay close no matter how far away from each other they may be.

* Wisdom of Age – Students living away from home for the first time may need some survival tips from older siblings. Knowledge from a big brother or sister is easy with unlimited Skype-to-Skype voice calls via Skype mobile.

Skype-to-Skype calls and chats are unlimited when initiated with Skype mobile from a Verizon Wireless phone with a data plan to any of the hundreds of millions of Skype users anywhere in the world. The calls run on the United States' largest and most reliable wireless voice network, providing outstanding call quality and allowing the app to work with traditional voice products, including Bluetooth® headsets. Skype mobile calls made to domestic landline and wireless numbers use minutes from customers' voice plans. Skype mobile calls to international numbers do not use customers' voice plans and are paid for by Skype Credit and charged at Skype's low international rates.

Customers with Android smartphones can download the highly rated app from the Verizon Channel in Android Market™, and customers with select BlackBerry® smartphones can download it from through their smartphones' browser. For 3G Multimedia phones, customers can download the app from Media Center/Get It Now® or the online media store at Customers can also text "SKYPE" to 2255 to get a message with the link to download Skype mobile.
