What is Skype Lite?

Skype Lite was a small downloadable application that used your existing mobile and calling and data plans to access Skype on the move.

Skype Lite is no longer available. Support for this product was discontinued in February 2010 and switched off completely on January 8, 2013. If you are using Skype Lite on your mobile, you'll see a "Failed to connect to Skype server” message and it will no longer work.

However, you can still use your existing Skype account when you’re on the go with Skype for Windows Phone, Android and iPhone.
