Look Ma: No Skype-In

Click here.  TalkPlus CEO Jeff Black demos a call from a Motorola handset equipped with TalkPlus to the Skype echo123 user.  Echo123 has no Skype-In number.  Sleight-of-hand?  You be the judge.  The video is unedited.

The impact on Skype/Ebay could be huge.  Right now, Skype-Out minutes are free.  Their revenue is from licensing, and from an annual 30 euro fee for Skype-In.  Why buy a Skype-In number if TalkPlus can do the job?

Woops!

    Does anyone know what the status of this is? The whole story seemed to simply disappear.

    I bought a Skype number thinking that I would be able to call landlines as well as cell phones. It seems that one needs to by credits to do so.

    I am upset because I had read that with a personal Skype number, that I would be able to do so.

    Did I read that wrong or can one do that?
