Default Skype Problem!

Please Login to Remove!

Hi guys,

Quick question about Skype+IM.

I download it to my BB Bold and it works really good. I only use it for 7 days after that I have to pay.

My question is,

If I call someone oversea does take minutes from my cell "plan" or not? I have only 350 minutes every month.

Also, does it charge for International call or only skypeout!

Thank you in advance,

peace guys

IM+ Skype is good for Skype chat. Also, overseas friends can call you for free but you pay your regular minutes and Skype credit when you answer their call. I use it every day.

hmm, okay what if someone called me after 6:00 PM would it be free or not because I have unlimited call after 6:00 PM and also, weekends.


So, I am not sure would take minutes eventho it's after 6:00 PM when someone call me!!!


Also, do you keep skype open on ur cell!! wouldn't take much of your cellphone battery or not!!!

please let me know bro,




peace for now

If someone calls you when you have free calls you will pay only Skype credit, which is a very small amount, maybe 3 cents/minute. I keep it running all the time on my phone and don't notice a battery problem. It's not perfect, sometimes you look at your phone and see that the app has disconnected and you have to re-start the app. I have been using it daily since it came out 2 or 3 years ago and every few months an improved version is available.
