Re: Skyper on BB Torch ?

I have a Torch 9800 using AT&T. Skype does not run on it nor, I believe, on any other AT&T BB phone.

 

So what I have done is create Skype To Go numbers for each person that I need to call using Skype. For me those are people in Europe. I then enter the Skype To Go numbers, which are local to where I live, as contacts on the phone and use Skype connects me to those people when the local number is called.

 

It allows me to call Europe at Skype rates without having to have Skype itself installed on the phone. It also only requires voice service rather than data, so it can even be used on a basic voice plan and a basic mobile device.

 

Don't know if this helps any.

Re: Skyper on BB Torch ?

No help for me I live in Qatar and skype gives me no local number, however my carrier charges me 0.15 cents/min for calling any country in the world which is so cheap for me to pay

But still sometimes, I like to call friends overseas when roaming as I have Unlimited Free BB Roaming.
