How can I get Skype for my 3 phone?

Skype on 3 is available on most 3 phones. To check if your phone is compatible with the Skype on 3 application:

  • If you are a UK customer, visit the Check Skype on 3 works on your mobile* webpage and select the Make and Model of your phone from the dropdown lists. Click Submit to see if your phone is compatible.
  • If you are a customer in the Republic of Ireland, visit the 3 Shop* and place a tick next to Skype® to see all the phones that are compatible with Skype.

To find full instructions on how to download Skype onto your 3 phone, please visit the 3 website.

The Skype on 3 application is only compatible with the 3 network. It consumes very little battery power and usage is free in the UK and Republic of Ireland (unless you call a mobile or landline abroad, then you’ll need a little Skype Credit or a subscription).

If your phone isn’t compatible with Skype on 3, then don’t worry, there are plenty more mobile solutions we offer. Simply visit Skype on your mobile for more details. Alternatively, you may be able to set up Skype To Go™ numbers for your mobile. Skype To Go numbers allow you to make calls to your friends and family abroad from your mobile at great Skype rates.

Find out if Skype To Go is available where you are or sign in to your account page to set it up.
Remember, you’ll need a little Skype Credit to use Skype To Go.
