Skype for iPhone is not available in Canada.  No problem:  Use TOR to make your PC in Canada (or other country) think it is in USA. (This is simple really). Best to toss out the cell phone & Rogers service plan. Use Skype software on the i-Pod touch 2G. No need for an iPhone. Where there is Wi-Fi you are ready to go! Viva La Fonera!!

If you are not allowed to use Skype at work…bring an i-Pod touch.
Use Skype on the i-Pod touch with the local Wi-Fi network and you can call without using the office telephone. Handy if you want a private second telephone at work.

BTW: Sony PSP & Zune devices also work with Skype.
