    Do I have this right? My wife and I both have Skype mobile on our BB's. If I am out of the country in Canada, my wife can call me on Skype as long as she is on the Verizon network??

    I wouldn't be able to call her because I am not on Verizon in Canada??

    Clarify, phone to phone?
    Her phone to a laptop?

    Her calling you from her phone to your laptop. Yep.
    You would need to be roaming and pay the roaming charges for data for her to call your phone.

    If you are:

    IN the U.S., then you can call to any skype account worldwide for free.

    OUTSIDE the U.S., you are charged based on the international rates for your calling plan

    Within the U.S. you just have to call them on their skype account. If you call a regular telephone, then:
    #s w/in the U.S. are billed against your calling plan
    #s outside the U.S. can only be dialed if you setup Skype credit for international calls.

    hope that helps clarify

    What if say both blackberries have data plans.

    Can you call from Canada to anywhere with skype using the data plans of both phones?

    You would need to have an international data plan since Canada is outside the US.
    Then yes. Data roaming will apply.

    considering that VZW and Skype have the agreement, and VZW is a US network only, then yes. it doesnt work on wifi, and it wont work during international travel.
