Skype is available for BlackBerry. Check this link  but it was made exclusive to Verizon subscribers only.

Re: RE : skype


When will it be available for other phones.  Today having Skype is a MUST especially when emergencies like the one that just happen in Japan occur...you should have it available for everyone not just for Verizon.  I believe skype is one of the best features ever invented I bought my skype phone as soon as was able.  I was living in London at that time and they had a great plan in the company 3.  Unfortunately, in Guatemala I cannot use my Skype phone...now I have a Blackberry which is supposed to be the Business tool of today, an although very useful it does not help in this situations.  Thank god for Whatsapp if it wouldn't have been for this tool it would have been terrible to bear this tragedy in Japan.  My mom is in Japan and we were able to communicate at all times thanks with both Skype and Whatsapp; however, I was stuck with my computer at all times.  She was surviving the emergency and upating us with the status only with her phone which is what should be nowadays.  Of course she has an iphone.  So I wonder when will this feature be available for everyone.  It is not only fair but also an necessity in today's life. Please write me with some answers on when will this feature be available for everyone.

Re: RE : skype

hello mac0782,


I read what you have written. But remember you are writting on a community forum. The people here have to power to do anything about that, even if they agree with you.


I suggest you contact Skype directly and give them your thoughts about a BlackBerry client : http://about.skype.com/where-is-skype/
