I have little to no knowledge of networks and VIOP but i have been able to phone friends on skype free using a VNC connection to my laptop, the only issue is sound?

Can sound be sent over a vnc network if so then if we can send it both ways then we can have free skype on any iphone, no need to create apps as there would be no limitation, the only issue is that you would need a sms to tell you to login to your computer, be least thats free,

Any ideas on its pluasability?

Even if you find a way, remember a couple of things though: first this will be over the mobile Internet service and since th Skype voice quality is not the greatest, going over another medium will make it worse. And it will also chew through your data plan allowance.

From reading your post I can't actually understand what you're actually trying to do and why you would want to do things over VNC.

The answer to your "Skype on iPhone" question though is simple though - Fring works on the iPhone and supports Skype. You just need to be aware that it will use your data cap if you're using a 3G connection.

Fring isn't out for iPhone 3G (2.0 and above) yet is it??

Ahh no it isn't. I had only played with it on an earlier model and just assumed it was compatible with the 2.0 software.
