Dear all,


Please advice is there any possibility to use skype on Blackberry Bold 9790. It is very important for my business. Almost all my work contacts using skype and it is very useful to contact with them instead of calling.

I am very much interested in buying blackberry 9790, but am waiting for Skype to work on it, as I am dependent on skype to connect with my family/friends and work.

Hi to all,


As you have probably read in the meantime in the other posts of this forum concerning BB, there is no Skype on any BB device, except if you're a customer of Verizon in the US, 3 in the Uk or Telkomsel AND have bought one of their phones.


There seems to be a workaround for the Playbook, but that's it!!!

As Skype is remaininig silent beyond belief in this matter, we must foresee that we will never get Skype on BB... Don't want to be pessimistic, but some realism is popping up after almost 4 years of nothing from Skype regarding the BB issue.

I am using IM+ to integrate skype chat for my bb9790. Free version is limited to 30 minutes per session, then you have to reconnect. 


Not sure if calls are possible on the free version. 


Hope this helps.

Hi c5tops!


To which "free version" are you referring when you say that it is limited to 30min per session? To the free version of IM+ or the one of skype?


Have you found out by now, if you can also use it for maiking calls with skype or only for the chat?


Thanks for your help
