    So you can skype to skype not skype to landline isnt implemented yet!!! How are we to test beta for you! I put £10 on this sucka to cure my poor three signal issues and use skype to landline at home! Also added extra contacts! How long will this beta for???!

      My bad, the option to call a land line from a number stored in your skype contacts is unavialable.

      However you can manual type a number in skype and call them and it rembers it in recent list. Which will do for now. Call quality was good.
