Skype Available for 3 in Ireland, Italy, and Australia
Over the last few years, Skype has proven to be a very useful application, particularly when you don’t want to use your plan minutes. Unfortunately, there are many network providers who will block these kind of services to charge the customer (you and I) as much as possible. Thanks to the efforts of many of our devs, the issue has been solved for many providers in many different countries. This time, XDA member dawmuz brings us this hack that will allow Skype for Android devices to work on the Hutchinson 3G network in Ireland, Australia, and Italy. The dev states that it is very simple to apply (no adb or pushing required), just install it and call away.
Are you on the 3 network outside of UK?

As you might know, an official 3Skype apk is only available on 3UK, which I have attached should anyone need it (it only works in the UK).
There is no Skype on 3 apk here in Ireland and, as far as I know, no app in Oz, Italy, Sweden, Austria…and wherever else Hutchinson 3G operates!
You can find more information in the application thread.
