As you know, Skype is available for iPhone right now, Skype for iPhone is a great application that lets you make free voice calls internationally over Skype. But there is a limitation. Due to certain reason, Skype restricts you to make calls over Wifi network only. By default, you can’t use Skype over 3G or EDGE network.

Is there any way to break this rule and use Skype over 3G/EDGE?


The answer is YES, if you’re using a jailbroken iPhone. Simply fire up Cydia and search for these two applications and install it to your jailbroken iPhone.
  • Mobile Substrate
  • VoIPover3G

Install Mobile Substrate Via Cydia

Launch Cydia > Select “Sections” at haptic menu > Select “System” category > and select “Mobile Substrate” or you can tap “Search” in Cydia and type “Mobile Substrate” > Select “install” button at the right top and confirm it to install.


Install VoIPover3G Via Cydia

Launch Cydia > Select “Sections” at haptic menu > Select “System” category > and select “VoIPover3G” or you can tap “Search” in Cydia and type “VoIPover3G” > Select “install” button at the right top and confirm it to install.


By installing these two packages, your iPhone will fake Skype to make call over 3G and even EDGE network (see the “E” in the below pic). From now on, you can make free calls anywhere with your friend on Skype.
