But if you were in say a restaurant or bar and had access to their (free ?) wifi service then you should be able to make Skype or Viber calls as long as you have the app on your smartphone. That would be the same as making a call over your wifi at home.

Mobile service providers, who of course are major buyers of phones, don't like systems such as Skype or Viber being used because they will lose revenue.  Therefore, few phone manufacturers will make it easy to select wi-fi over 3G to make VOIP calls: its not you being dim!
