EQO pricing

With virgin mobile the cost of data transfer is 0.5p/kb and apparently with EQO it wuld be possible to make over 100 calls with 1Mb of data transfer. This would mean approx 10kb for 1 call, i.e. with my mobile provider this would cost me 5p. Then, we need to add the cost of the SkypeOut call to your mobile to make the initial connection, this will cost an additional 15p.
The rest is priced as follows:
- For an incoming call to your EQO wireless Skype phone from a Skype buddy there will be no additional charges.
- For an outgoing call to your Skype buddies there will be no additional charges.
- For an outgoing call to a landline or cell phone you will be charged the appropriate Skypeout rates on top of the Skype out rates for the incoming call.
So it would cost me a bit more than 26p to make a 1 min phone call to a landline in Mexico and an extra 6p per additional minute. Whereas phoning Mexico without using EQO and SkypeOut would c ost me 80p per min. I think it could be worth it. I will see whether I can install EQO on my Motorola L6.

Let me know if you were successful because I haven't been able to get EQO to work with virgin mobile. It doesn't seem to support virgin as a carrier. I know that virgin piggyback on T-mobile, but that doesn't work either.
