Thread: skype over edge

  1. #1
    Default skype over edge
    Hi everyone
    ok my question is this, when I have tried to use
    skype over the edge network on T-mobile
    I always get the (not connected) error message.
    Is this a TM problem, or am I missing a setting?
    I have voipover3g, and substright? installed.
    followed all the instructions to the letter.

    HI GIRLLLLLLLL

    my APN is (wap.voicestream.com)

    what do you have??
    there are so many different solutions floating
    around..

    To the other two replies, thank you, but in 2 cases you
    are wrong, in a skype to skype call you are using the
    wi fi network no credits needed, in the 3govervoip
    the software is fooling the networking thinking its using
    wi fi. Its my understanding that credits are only needed
    when making a skype call to a none skype number\person.
    ie: land line.

    Use internet2.voicestream.com

    I use this with web2go however you should be able to use this with any Smartphone plan.

    And you're right, Skype to Skype calls are free.

    Both of you have to have really good service in order for the call to be even "acceptable" over EDGE.

    if its that bad then whatever. but its worth a shot.

    Hey GirLLLLLLL
    thanks again, will give it a try
    if it does not work, do you have any other suggestions
    or reason why it might not be working..
    I'm in SoCal, and have very good Edge on Tmobile
    I know it would be slower then 3g.
    Also why do you think others are connecting
    on the (epc) apn?
    again thanks

    epc is really just for T-Zones. Internet2 should be used with web2go and the smartphone plans.

    If it still doesn't work, reset your network settings.

    Also.. Skype over EDGE is OK, but only if you have 4-5 bars and the voice quality still isn't that good.

    Well I am on a pre paid Tmobile plan, $100, 1000, min
    should I still be able to use skype over edge, yes
    I hear how slow edge is.
    I have done the network reset, hope we don't have to
    do that all the time.
    using your new APN, it did not work. still get
    your not connected to network.
    I get a good edge signal here.
    its funny but sitting next to my MacBook, which I
    get a wifi signal, but on my iphone 3g 3.0
    It says can't fine network...
    thanks again.
    best
