do you have to be connected to wifi to make a skype call from an iphone?

Hi,

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

If I understood the original poster correctly he his connected to the Internet via 3G, in which case he should be able to make Skype calls to phone numbers.

You must be connected to the Internet one way or another to use Skype.
