In kind of a changing of roles, Eqo has devised a solution for you to use your cellphone to call members of your Skype buddy list. Their mobile Internet phone service doesn't actual use the Skype network, but instead is a J2ME app that allows you know if your buds are online, and call them without knowing their phone number. They then get a message on their phone that they have an incoming call, and can choose whether or not they want to accept, making it perfect for online dating so you don't have to give away your precious phone number and end up with a stalker or two. Eqo hopes to work with other services than Skype in the future, so hopefully you can get stalker dodging with all sorts of your usernames before long.
