The symbian Skype needs to call a local number everytime you make a mobile or landline call. The service not being available in your are probably means they don't have a local number in your area.

 

I use Skype with another application called Fring and it is also free. Check it out at

I think you may not be properly connecting to a wifi access point. Are you using an access point that you have successfully used before?

yes..i think so. I can browse the web, log into skype account, see all my contacts using both the wifi and the att network.

 

One observation..when in skpe, the option to test skype call only provide  text otions. In fring the echo test works fine.

Thanks for your help.

Check the username and password settings for Skype in Fring. SOunds like you are connected but not logging in correctly to Skype. 

 

Also, it normally takes a minute or so after Fring activates before it logs onto Skype. You will know this has happened when your Skype contacts appear on the display.

You are welcome. Glad it worked for you.

 

Note that call quality is generally good but is dependent on the quality of the wifi connection.

There are a few 3rd party applications you can download and install to use Skype on your phone. My favourite is Fring which you can download for free from www.fring.com. Download and install to your phone, set it up for your account and Bob's your uncle.
