Can I use Skype on my mobile phone abroad?

This FAQ is for customers who are with one of Skype’s mobile partners:

  • au on KDDI

If you are not with one of Skype’s mobile partners, please visit the support homepage and select your device under Skype for Mobile, where you will find help and support for other Android phones, as well as for iPhone and Symbian.

Unfortunately, as you are with one of our mobile partners, Skype will not work abroad. You can only use Skype and access its functions on your own network in your home country. Skype will also not work over WiFi.

When travelling abroad, we recommend you use Skype on a computer, which can offer you free Skype-to-Skype calling, instant messaging and calls to mobiles and landlines at great Skype rates.
