Just recently got the Nokia E63 and love it.
Installed Skype Mobile successfully. However after dialing - receive message - calling not supported in your region
I am based in Texas. Any special steps nemake it needed to make it work?
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance
Solved! Go to Solution.
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
Intalled Fring on Nokia E63 on ATT network,
Installed Skpe and have unlimited calling account ..same account works fine on my PC,
logged into skype,
dialled a US number by prefixing +1 Area Code and Number ...call terminated after 1st ring
dialled a US number by prefixing +001 Area Code and Number ...call terminated after 1st ring
dialled a US number by prefixing 001 Area Code and Number ...call terminated after 1st ring
What could be wrong? Please help.
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.
