Skype for Windows Mobile ~ free Internet calls on HTC HD2

Skype… This is not an uncommon word for you and me. Most of us who connected to Internet should know that Skype ~ a free Internet phone calls application. I had been using Skype (desktop version) during my business trips to China last few years. It is my best and cheapest solution to call back home when traveling. And I got it on my HTC HD2 now.

Skype is a free tool to make voice calls over the Internet using Voice over Internet Protocol (VOIP) technology. Free for Skype to Skype calls or Skype to landlines, mobile phones with a fee using SkypeOut. Besides voice calls, Skype also have instant message (IM) function, video calls, send files, send texts (SMS). Too bad that HTC HD2 don’t have secondary video camera. I cannot use video call with it. Does Skype for Windows Mobile have voice call function in the first place?

There is lot of mobile phone versions for Skype like Skype for Symbian, Nokia N800/N810, Nokia N900, iPhone, Skype on PSP, Android and Windows Phones. However, I cannot find the link to download Skype for Windows Mobile (temporary removed) and Android (do we have Skype for Android?) by the time of writing this. After searching with Google… I found Skype v3.0.0.256 for Windows Phones cab.

Skype requires WiFi connection or 3G/2G data connection. The best method to use Skype on your mobile phone is to get an unlimited 3G broadband data connection plan. Then, you don’t need to worry about the data connection charges while chatting with friend through Skype.

Download Skype v3.0.0.256 for Windows Phones cab here.

  • It would be wonderful if we can make free call from our handphone in future 😀

    • We have unlimited Internet now. Unlimited phone call (maybe VoIP) is not a problem. But telcos want to earn money. That won’t be happening soon.

  • …have you tried this with US toll free nos?

Since I’m new to the whole internet phone and HD2, could you please walk me through how to download and install skype feature on my phone properly? I currently have unlimited 3G with T-mobile.

    • Just download and copy to your phone. Install the cab from phone.

  • ehssan

    yes ,exactly right , first of all you should download the file to your PC and then copy to your PPC and then install it .


  • Vijay Raje

    It is totally wrong…Skype is not working on HTC HD2 which is Windows Mobile 6.5 and I also try to download it from……Unfortunately…it is not working.

  • Mark

    On Skype home page, they rempoved the link, and they stated that it will no longer be available for Winmo phones. You can still use it if u download it from another link until end of 2010….is it true??? and why???



    • Use the link above. It is still working.
      Skype removed the link might due to Window Phone 7 is coming out soon…

  • Ruth

    So I downloaded the cab to my computer…now what do I do to get skype onto my htc hd2?

    • Copy the cab to your phone. Click on it to install. That’s all.

      • Ruth

        We downloaded it to the phone but says cannot complete download or something like that….really bummed by this cause a huge reason we got this phone was cause we thought we could skype from it..

  • naim

    how to download skype on htc hd2 what is the cab u r talking about

    • Please use the link above to download.

  • I bought the HTC HD2, I bought the telephone for using in airports/hotels when on Skype, I was quite suprised when I went on the Skype homepage and could see it was not existingt.

    But thanks to you, I now have Skype and it works perfect, Thank You.

    • poul

      Last time I said perfect, but it was not perfect as the voice is in the loud speaker. Is there no way this can be changed. ?
      Thanks anyhow for being able to have Skype on the HD2, the ear phones takes the voice from the speakers but it is not how I normally use my phone.

  • Granger

    I dontvthink that they git rid of the mobile Skype for windows mobile for any reason other than Verizon paying them off to make it ONLY available for Verizon phones such as th droid. not even other android phonescan use Skype because verizon is shelling a lot of cash for exclusivity

  • Mukul Gupta

    Thanks! I could install it on my HD2 using the above link and steps. I can talk now from my mobile through skype.

    • Ilaria

        Hi, I downloaded the latest T-mobile ROM for HD2 posted on their site a few days ago. I had Skype 3.0 working prior to the upgraded T-M ROM. After upgrading to the new ROM, I re-installed Skype 3.0 again. I got the Skype icon in my Start menu, I can sign in but then Skype just keeps spinning and never connects…
        I am connected to wifi but Skype will not log-in… anyone have.any ideas?
        You think it might be the new ROM?

        • Joe

          I too have the new rom from T-Mobile… When I try to connect, I finally reach a time-out and it quits. Bummer.

          • Joe

            Hang on… after clicking the bottom left “Sign-In” again.. it finally worked… just like the above post suggests.

    I have hdt hd 2model t8585, windows mobile 6.5..can ne one of you send me the link from where to download the skype… thanks

    • Please use the download link above.


    I can’t believe the number of people here that can’t follow a simple direction or two. Anyway, many thanks to the OP for providing a link for the 302 cab. I have skype working fine on both my LG IQ, a 6.5 winmo, and my HTC Maple, a 6.1 winmo. Funny the one version works fine as my HTC is a non-touch screen and my LG is a touch screen.

    Regardless, very happy here. As long as skype doesn’t start blocking winmo phones I’m happy.

  • manish

    hi friends i have htc hd2 i wont to download skype plzzzzzzzzz help me my mail id is plzz send me link

  • Martin

    I have installed skype on my HD2 about one year ago and it worked perfect until a few weeks ago.
    I noticed before that when I was connected (by accident) to my provider and not wifi, skype stopped working. This problem was solved easy by deleting and reinstalling. A few weeks ago it stopped working again (not sure why) and I made the reinstall. Strange enough it starts normal, asks username and password but does not connect and give the message “cannot connect with the scype network, check your connection” the last is fine and so is my login info. Anybody any idea? Thanks

  • Martin

    Hey COOL, I just had a look at Deso’s and it also solved my problem … thanks man.
    Only wonder why because befor it worked fine without the headset.
