Skype for Nokia E72


It seems that Fring is the best solution for having all messenger and VoIP applications on the Nokia E72. So you might wonder what if there is a reason to install Skype’s application for Symbian S60 on the phone.  The short answer: if you are using Skype for more then just chatting and calling friends you defiantly should consider installing the application.

And now for the long answer….. The Skype application for Symbian provides almost all features that Skype desktop application provides:

  • Register to Skype if you don’t have user.
  • Calling other Skype Users
  • Chatting with other Skype Users
  • Calling any phone using Skype Out (Charge Applies)
  • Sending SMS Messages using Skype Network (Charge Applies, Not supported by Fring)
  • Sending and Receiving files from other Skype users
  • Adding users to contacts (Not supported by Fring)
  • For users who are subscribed to  additional Skype services, the application provides information about the subscription status, Voice mails  and Call credit. (Not supported by Fring)

Unfortunately like Fring,even this application doesn’t support video calls on Nokia E72. Other then that it’s a great application.

The application can be downloaded from Skype’s mobile site

    Been using it since yesterday, it works quite well.

    Back when I had my E51, approx. a year ago I had to rely on fring, as Live Messenger was *so* beta and generally filled with bugs that it was an annoyment itself, just to have it on my device. Skype back then was just a J2ME client that offered very limited services so I had to fall back on using fring (which itself, had some annoyances, but nothing serious).

    Now, as E72 came with an updated Live client (that works like a charm), and now a Native Skype client – I find myself rarely running fring, which is a big pat-on-the-shoulder for the developers of the official/native clients.

    (Skype for Symbian is not (yet?) perfect, it has some quirks but alltogether, it’s a breeze to use and saves you from the annoyances that come from a not platform-friendlily (is there such a word? :D ) developed application.)

  • You never will know

    Skype 1.0 is not supporting the Nokia E72. Many features doesn’t work with the Nokia E72. In the Skype forum many people reporting trouble with the audio.

    Well there is a beta build for the Nokia E72 from Skype. If you like it, Install the latest beta and report the bugs ;)

    I don’t recommend it!

    If you don’t need Video Calls, I recommend Nimbuzz. Skype is getting expensive, Nimbuzz Out going calls are cheaper. With Nimbuzz you have the option for “Nimbuzz or Skype” out.

    I installed the Skype Beta, late last night. Signed in smoothly, got my contact displayed, my account on unlimited world calls.
    BUT…i don’t hear any audio as i call & the progress still shows ‘connecting…’ for like 3mins via WiFi and still nothing!

      For me it works great, I can ear the other side without any problem.
      I’m using version

  • Flaki

    I, too, have the, and (except the bit muffled, not-very-high-quality incoming audio) I had no issues with it. And I downloaded this straight from the official homepage, no beta, no nothing.
    So as far as I can say – the official symbian Skype client *does* support E72.
