I have a PSP PHAT and was very disappointed when the firmware update only mentioned that Skype is only compatible on the newer PSPs.
Nevertheless, Skype is for you to call people who are also logged onto skype (on computer/mobile phone/PSP) or if u've got paid for credit then you may call (i think) most landlines/mobiles at a reasonably low rate.
However, you must be connected to a wireless access point which is connect to the interenet, and since u've got the PSP 2000 (i assume it is the slim one which came after the PHAT) u'll need to have a headset-thingy connecting to ur PSP.
However, if u get the new PSP3000, apparently they have incorporated the microphone onto the psp and reduces the wires.
Skype on my PSP is weirdly awesome. I called my brother from the hotspot near work, and he laughed at me because I called him on my PSP. I actually have Skype on my PC at home, so this is fairly useful for me.
I don't use landlines, I only use my cell phone and Skype... Being that I have a monthly account with Skype, I can make unlimited calls to landlines in Australia for about $10/month (this is in addition to my free Skype calls), which is rather convenient being that I'm frequently away from Family due to work.
I onyl wish I could find this ***** (official) PSP (PlayStation Portable) Slim & Lite earphones with the microphone and remote-control that Sony keep suggesting...
Is the skype paid service reliable? And what does that $10/month goes towards if it is unlimited landlines in Australia.
In regards to the headphone+mic. I dunno if the headset for the SOCOM FIRETEAM BRAVO HEADSET work for the SKYPE on ur psp. If so, it'd be so awesome, its a much nicer headset than a standard headphones+mic. Google that headset, u'll know what i'm talking about. The headset gets connected to the remote control, and from memory the headset is from SONY, with great bass and clarity.
I have that headset but my PSP is the FAT+old version so I didnt bother finding the headset eversince I found out that my psp doesnt support the skype.
I guess you can trade in ur psp for a new one with where the mic. is installed into the psp.
i just google "socom fireteam bravo headset" found an image for you.
Thanks for the info.
I might consider it.
Mainly because my parents want to call overseas and teh quality of the CallCards often get disconnected. If we use the TELSTRA long distance call service, its very very reliable but also VERY VERY expensive.
I need a cheap alternative to calling overseas with a reliable and clear service provider.
Welll Skype is definately reliable and quality-wise it's pretty much the same as a landline... It's also a LOT cheaper (as can be seen above).
I would suggest though, getting a headset if you plan on using it through a PSP (PlayStation Portable) - without a headset of some description, the volume's awful!
Thanks for the info.
I have the PSP FAT so skype is not an option... and i don't want to trade my PSP for another thinner and flimsier version, plus, who would want to buy my Logitech hard plastic case anyways..
I'm considering getting a pair of headphones with a mic, for the iPod Touch and use Skype via fring on that and use WiFi instead.
value of my PSP if sold ~ <$100
logitech PSP case if sold ~ free
instead, I can hop on over to Apple and buy a pair of headphones with mic for the iPod Touch and SKYPE OUT for $48.
BRAND LOYALTY?? lol. Sony PSP better start getting their stuff together such as DIVX support for the PSP. They already have it for the PS3.
I've only been using skype for skype to skype calls and video calls. I haven't paid since I dont know if its a reliable service.
Just bear in mind that if you're using "Fring", you'll still be charged the equivalent of a local call (or in the case of a cell phone, a "standard" call) - Fring is uinique in that it makes a local call and routes the VoIP call via that... Unlike "pure" VoIP and Skype applications, which place the call directly over the Internet.
Thanks for the heads up.
If you can, may you please also post up further links and information about the skype via fring?
In that case.. perhaps just get a good USB headset or wireless headset with my laptop.
Hmm.. I wonder how else I can get Skype rates without the FRING premiums..
Thanks for the clarification.
Yeh, Fring supports several other IM services.
as with Fring on the iPod Touch, the only available 'data' connection is wifi. If installed on the iPhone on the other-hand it can choose to use the mobile data or the wifi connection.
i have a psp 3000 and i did the latest software update but i dont have skype. what do i do.
