Skype Mobile Now Available for Six Verizon BlackBerrys

Skype Mobile Storm We knew it was coming today and its nice to see it has launched exactly on schedule. Tom tipped us off that you can now download Skype Mobile for BlackBerry if you are a Verizon customer. We mentioned some caveats about it yesterday but that should not deter you from downloading it since it is still a pretty useful app for international and Skype to Skype calls along with Skype chat/IM.

Amazingly Skype Mobile is compatible at launch with the:

  • BlackBerry Tour 9630
  • BlackBerry Storm 9530
  • BlackBerry Storm2 9550
  • BlackBerry Curve 8530
  • BlackBerry Curve 8330
  • BlackBerry 8830 World Edition

You can download Skype Mobile OTA at or read more about it at this link.

  1. When trying to download on my BB Tour 9630: “Sorry, Skype mobile is not available for your phone”


  2. I receive the same error on my blackberry storm 2 (9550)

  3. Nice! Works on my Curve 8330.
    It says it won’t work over WiFi. That doesn’t affect me much as I don’t have WiFi on my Curve but I’m sure there will be a lot of people out there who will be ticked about that.
    The icons on top need tooltips, too. How the heck am I supposed to know what they each do?

  4. and what about my 9700 bold?

    • On Verizon?!? I don’t think so (you must be on the VZW network to download, I believe)… 😉

      • Anyone can go to one of the URLs above and download the jad file, including from another provider or country and on an unlisted device (9700 is not on vzw). The issue is that once you run the app, it shuts down if you’re not running it on a vzw device.

  5. I just got the new skype and new version of crackberry 1.64 neither one of these are working
    keep saying error out of memory all my other apps are fine and I even clean somes stuff of my blackberry.

  6. Thus worked on my Verizon Tour with Sprint OS 5.0. Trying directly from the URL sms’d to me resulted in the unsupported device error (probably because VZW doesn’t recognize 5.0 for 9630).
