    I am using BlackBerry z10, in this Skype is not working on Etisalat mobile Internet. Even it's not having any problems with wifi connections. Anyone can give a solution for the problem.

    Is Skype on mobile still blocked in UAE? Seems at the end of 2014 I remember it being blocked but maybe I misread.

    My friends are using the same mobile network and there is no problem for them, they are using IPhone and android devices.

    Habibi ukkash!
    The Skype version in BlackBerry is actually the android edition. It is laggy ND hangs all the time. Even I am on DU and it doesn't work for me. Try using Skype on your tab or computer.

    Well, you can't exactly say blocked. It used to be illegal here before, but when Microsoft purchased it, Skype became better. But now what our carriers do (Etisalat. & Du) they purposely make it worse. The signals won't come, calls will get dropped, unable to sign in and all that... Viber,Tango,ICQ and all those messengers that involve call r all banned here. even LINE. They do it cuz ppl stop using the carriers which is a loss for them. So we have a sad life :/ no voice calls

    What do you mean people stop using the carriers?

    I thought Etisalat and Du were the only players in the UAE market? What's the alternative?

    Do you have the same issue with only skype? Does any other app have this problem (not working on mobile Internet but working on wifi) mainly android ports from bb world and android apps ?


    Just can't forget it.!

    BBM voice is an alternate. Voice centric revenue will take a hit because of such services. Although it can be argued that the carriers will have no effect on their revenue as they are the only data providers also. It will shift revenues from one source to another.

    It's pretty expensive to call abroad. People use Viber, Skype, Tango, Kakao Talk and Many more as an alternative.
