We heard earlier this year that 3 was offering Skype-to-Skype calls absolutely free, and now the offer has been extended to all compatible 3G phones.


Previously you had to have be a 3 customer with a 3 handset, but customers will be able to pick up a free 3 SIM will work with any unlocked 3G phone, no contract or top ups required.


This basically means you can get a free SIM and enjoy as many Skype to Skype calls and IMing you could want, and never have to cough up a penny. Nice.


Head over to the 3 website to check if your handset will work, and order your SIMs (don’t forget one for your mates!), then let us know below what you think.
