I have an iphone 4s and just purchased a skype credit thinking that I'd be able to use the skype app to call long distance numbers. When I try to make a call (when my phone is on the 3G network) I get a message saying that I'm not connected and i cant make the call. When I turn on wifi, I can make a call. Does skype only work if connected to wifi? I hope not!
Yes - Unless you have a transport mechanism - there is no way
to connect the skype client to the internet - you need either the 3G or
Wifi Networks - does that mean you're out of luck - unfortunartely - yes
You must be connected to the Internet one way or another to use Skype.
