Skype has a good thing going, and I put a lot of effort into researching their services to see if it would fit my needs, but I have an issue getting my phone service from a company that has no phone contact information. All of your questions and complaints are handled on their forums, and it takes a minimum of 4 days to get a response from someone within the company.
"Now, about getting push notifications integrated into Skype for iPhone…"
My next phone will be an android phone Im starting to think. The iPhone was ahead of the game when it first came out, providing a novel experience that was unrivaled, but now its artificially-imposed limitations are catching up with it. Screw that nazi-esque app store; screw having to jailbreak to get control of your own device; screw iTunes; and screw not having multi-tasking.
