    Seemed to me that the OP wanted to Run Skype instead of having an actual phone plan thru a carrier. I do not believe that is possible.

    Never said you couldnt download skype to the Nexus S

    Gingerbread supports SIP, so you could use the phone without actually signing up to a carrier if you're always within range of a wifi access point.

    If you're within range of a wifi access point, you could also just use Skype anyway.

    If you're out and about, unless you happen to have constant wifi coverage from access points you have permission to use everywhere you go, you're going to need a data plan at the very least or else your phone won't be contactable as you move out of range. You could use the SIP support but over mobile data it's probably going to be a bit hit-and-miss.
