Thread: skype over edge
08-06-2009, 08:04 PM #1skype over edge
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.

What do you have for your APN?
Just tried it over EDGE and it was working.

do you have to have skype credits to be able to make calls?

You have to have skype credits to make calls.

my APN is (wap.voicestream.com)
what do you have??
there are so many different solutions floating
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.

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.

^^ Haha. Agreed. It connects, rings, answers, but don't try talking (haha). Doesn't matter how good the SpeedTest number are

i did the voice test and it came back sounding perfect? i'll test it out later n report back.
if its that bad then whatever. but its worth a shot.1.1.1>1.1.2>1.1.4>2.0>2.1>2.2>3.1>3.1.2 blackra1n'd

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?
can respond directly if you wish

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.

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...
