I dont have any data minutes on my mobile tariff.
I want to set up Skype on my mobile but ensure that all connection is over the wifi connection and not via GPRS.
What is the best method of ensuring this. Can i turn off GPRS? If so, how?

might be a noob'ish' question but, can you also just put the device into flight mode and just connect to wifi - which will stop it trying to connect to another service?.. or is the software you are saying above - basically doing this but in an easier fashion?
Hi Rich- full flight mode will turn off WiFi as well, though you can of course just turn the phone part off. The problem with that is that you'd then also lose all voice call & SMS function.
So if you want to retain voice calls, but prevent data transfer, you need to find a way of limiting the GPRS/3G connections- you can do it by not allowing 'Save Passwords' in your data settings, so each data session would request a password, but with Activesync now trying to connect every 5 minutes, that could become intrusive. So, programs like Bandswitch or MoDaCo Nodata are easy ways to turn off just the data connections, but retain voice calls and SMS.
