Well, I managed to install EQO on my motorola L6. I use virgin mobile but as this was not an option as a carrier, I selected T-mobile as Virgin piggybacks on T-mobile. Installation was straight forward although I had to install Opera mini onto my mobile as the virgin browser wasn't letting me download EQO.
Installation was not to bad but the pricing system is far more complex. I phone France for 1 min and these are the pricing details:
Virgin charged me twice for data transfer
21-Sep-06 10:41:28 Accessing other sites £0.03
21-Sep-06 10:41:28 Accessing other sites £0.07
And Skype charged me twice:
21/09/2006 10:42 My mobile 00:01:02 duration
21/09/2006 10:42 France, Landline 00:00:47 duration
This cost me €0.22=£0.14
TOTAL COST of £0.24
This is mainly the cost of the SkypeOut from my computer to my mobile for the initial connection (£0.166 including VAT). I've actually been charged a bit less.
Calling France would normally cost me £0.40 per minute with Virgin.
EQO seems a bit cheaper. Next time I call, I will spend a bit more time on the line and I will report back to you. I think that if Skype and EQO got together to give more appropriate information about pricing, they might get a few more people interested.
