Skype have recently updated their iPhone application to work over 3G. When combined with Skype For Asterisk from Digium it is now possible to call in to your Asterisk server for free over 3G. Unfortunately though this will only last for a short time as Skype are planning on charging for Skype to Skype calls over 3G (I’m not sure how the mobile operators feel about this as they will be the ones losing out on the call revenue!)
Skype on the iPhone is not really useful for receiving calls as, unless the Skype application is running, it is not logged it. Roll on iPhone 4 and multi-tasking!
Once the Skype for Asterisk software is installed and configured it is possible to create Inbound Routes in FreePBX as normal to route the incoming Skype calls to their destination –
