    Besides Skype, as you know, PSP have many other functions such as play video, movie, music and take photos. The part one is make PSP into PSP phone, now let’s rip DVD on PSP phone with DVD Ripper software.
    I have many DVDs, and it’s rebarbative to download movies from internet. I choose this DVD Ripper I think it’s one of the best DVD Ripper that rip DVD with high quality and fast speed I even used.

    1.Install Daniusoft DVD Ripper and load DVD.
    2.Select the right format you want to rip and the output folder.



    3.Press ‘Start’ to rip DVD movie to the right format.


    This DVD ripper software can also set twice volume of output file, capture photo from DVD and save to computer. I capture a photo when preview, it’s much convenient for me. It can rip DVD to all popular players, so I can use it for iPod, too.

    4.After conversion, copy the file and put it to the ‘Movie’ folder or ‘Video’ folder, now

    you can enjoy DVDs on your PSP phone. Don’t forget, you can rip DVD just as personal not commercial.

    Part Three: Go to internet on PSP.
    If you have known how to do that, please go to part one.
    If you still a freshman of it, please follow the steps to go to internet with your PSP.
    1.Turn on PSP and go to Settings.
    2.Find ‘Network Settings” and enter.
    3.Choose ‘Infrastructure Mode” and enter.
    4.Select ”New Connection” and enter.
    5.Make it ‘Scan”. It will take seconds to scan around for wireless router.
    6.After scan, choose the SSID you want to enter, before you can go to internet, you should enter your name and press ‘Enter” to quit.
    7.Go ahead. Select the network and enter it, then you need to input a ‘WEP Key” before you can go to internet.

    If you have Notebook and use wireless router, then you can use the wireless router here.

    If you enter a wrong ‘WEP Key’, it will warning ‘The characters you entered are not valid’, that means you should connect again and get a right key.

    Skype isn't released for the Phat. Sony officially states hardware restrictions, but I call BS. Either way, there is no way of using Skype on the Phat as of yet. So everyone witha Phat, this is useless.

    Scribble = Idk, if someone randomly punched in the STOMACH it wouldn't really hurt, especially if it was a girl. I think though, it's because I have lots of stomach muscle and that my stomach would automatically flex.

    Just as it mentioned 'Skype for PSP can call other Skype user free, including PC Skype, mobile phone Skype and others' but not phat, it's not release for that.

    Know what? Unless you can call others ANYWHERE, I don't really see a point in this. Its Cell > Comp > Cell > Comp. PSP really doesn't fit in comfortably since you'll never guess when your friends are on at the same time as you.

    I think skype won't work on psp PHAT because of the Ram Memory of the mainboard, psp PHAT has 32M wile Slim has 64M.

    Edit----

    think about it, not everyone has enough money to buy "decent" things.
