Storm 2 and Skype
susja
Enthusiast

 

Hello,

I installed Skype on my BB Storm2. It's running version 1.4.0.7

If I'm reading right 'Terms....' it looks that Skype is not supported over Wi-Fi connection for this version.

On my other phone Droid X I don't have a problem to use Skype over Wi-Fi.

Could someone confirm that on Blackberry Skype won't work over WiFi?

Thanks

Hello susja!

 

Skype is a great communication application that can be used to stay in touch with other Skype users, especially when separated by great distances!

 

Just to clarify Skype and WiFi capabilities, I'd like to share Skype mobile can only be used on Verizon Wireless’ Nationwide and Extended Nationwide Rate and Coverage Area in the U.S., and not on Wi-Fi networks.  Even though the application only works on the Verizon Wireless network, you can still use both Verizon network and WiFi connections simultaneously.

 

I trust I have answered your questions, and have addressed your concerns.

Additionally, I think you will be charged minutes while using Skype, as if you had placed a direct call.
