Blackberry in Ireland/ Using Skype app

My boyfriend just purchased the Blackberry tour because he is going to Ireland for 6 weeks. However we then realized that it was still 1.29 a min and expensive to text. However, he downloaded the skype app. When he goes to load it, it says he has to be in the U.S but if I recall from the commercial, its global? Why is this happening? If there a way we can make this phone work with Skype while in Ireland, or are we stuck to basic computer skype?

Re: Blackberry in Ireland/ Using Skype app

The Skype app can not be used while roaming(out of the US). Your boyfriend will not be able to use it in Ireland. I replied to your other post with ways to keep in touch.
