 What happens to free apps when Android opens up the "paying"
marketplace?  In other words, if my app is free and I want to change
it to "charge" , what will happen?

Will all users who have the free app be able to use it still?

Also, has anyone tried the current 3rd party "pay" sites that let you
charge for your Android Apps?

Do they work well?

 No plans on the implementation of charging have been released.

The Marketplace T&Cs state you can't charge for content users have 
obtained for free, so the user who have the free apps will still have 
the free apps and any attempt to charge for them will probably see your 
Market account suspended.

If you're looking to use a 3rd party payment system with Market you'll 
most likley see your application suspended

I do this? I have tried using a URI such as skype:8005551212?call with
ACTION_CALL and ACTION_VIEW, but I keep getting "No application to
handle intent" errors.  Any ideas? Mark Murphy suggested in a similar
post that Skype would know, but their documentation doesn't seem to
cover this.
