Skype is the leading VoIP client that helps make free video and voice calls, send instant messages and share files with other Skype users and make low-cost calls to landlines and mobiles all over the Internet. Skype client software is supported on Windows Mobiles. Skype 2.5 for Windows Mobile is the version that can run on any phones running Windows Mobile Standard or Professional versions.

Skype 2.5 for Windows Mobile can use either a WiFi connection or a Active Sync connection to the PC or even your data connections through the Phone company(you may have to check with your phone company for charges). This connection option can be setup on the client once installed and can be changed at any time.

Skype 2.5 has improved voice quality and using it on your Windows Mobile is just as simple as you would use on the desktop. On my HTC Touch HD, I’m loving it.

Click here to download the client. Easiest way to install would be to download the installed to your PC and start the installation from your PC (assuming the phone is connected to the PC). This should extract the required files and load it onto the Windows device and complete the installation. The phone may require a reboot (as it did on my HTC Touch HD) once the installation is successfully completed.

When you start the Skype client for the 1st time, you will be prompted to accept the leagl terms and then a welcome message confirming the requirement of a WiFi or a 3G connection from your Phone company. Click OK and you can enter your existing username and password to login.

At this point, you will be able to choose the connection method. Here I choose, Use ActiveSync/WiFi (ActiveSync can be a bit slower than with WiFi or your 3G connection)
