Great news for those who are using Skype to get connected with their contacts, now they can do so while on the move with the free Skype mobile client.
The mobile client offers chat feature as well as receiving calls from Skype contacts. However airtime charge may incur for receiving voice call, depending on the subscribers’ data plan.
The main advantage of this J2ME client is portability across a wide-range of mobile devices which implements MIDP 2.0. Although the Skype Mobile website lists only handful of supported device, in reality Mobile Skype is supported on a lot more devices.
Disadvantages include its inability to send SMS to your contacts and the inability to make voice calls. However in my opinion, the free Mobile Skype does its best considering it is written for mobile devices with limited capabilities.

With little creativity on java jad file, you can install Mobile Skype on any MIDP 2.0 supported device without much trouble
