Is it free to use Skype on my N95 if I have free internet/Wap surfing? Do I only pay for data connection when using Skype if say I wanted to call abroad.

Obviously I would use my Skype account and money to call, but wondered what charges I would get by using if any?

And last question can I use it abroad and call or would I incur data costs and other costs, any help please

Yes but if your service provider finds out they may just kick you off their contract, best to stick with Wifi if you can find one.

If using data abroad it will cost you £2.50+ per MB though you should easily find a wifi connection

read your terms and conditions I've read my O2 t&c's, it's so they still make money from people calling abroad. Why do you think they blocked 0845 numbers it's where they make their money.

The greedy ******s!, so I can use my WAP etc to connect and as I have free data with my contract I wont pay anything is that right, but you recommend I find a Wifi place and call from there.

Unless you can get 3.5g access then the call wouldn't work (I imagine) anyway, wifi would be broadband and the call would be fine.

I guess I must have 3.5g access as I have made a test call and it work, just worried if I was going to get any additional charges for calling abroad etc on skype, sorry for all the questions new to Skype on mobile and want to know so much to make sure I don't get additional charges.

cool, might not necessarily have to be 3.5g then wonder if GPRS would do it :?

My t&c say I can't use torrents on my N95 (symtorrent) but downloaded loads up until then but haven't been found out yet, I don't use it any more as it wasn't in my t&c when I signed up. I just connect to my wifi to use it now.

When you first start it up, it should give you an option on what access point to use.
