Well I guess you just go to the SKYPE site and download, although from a recent thread on here I believe there are issues in Dubai with SKYPE

But they are frequently as useful as a wet lettuce





For those unaware the UAE telephone companies are Etisalat & Du.

I asked my new boss last week why if Skype is banned that he still manages to use it. His reply was that its not possible to download Skype in Dubai due to the competition faced by the local phone company/ies. He suggested downloading Skype whilst out of the UAE. You are then able to use it in Dubai.

Wow, if the solution is that simple that will be great. I've heard that some people have spotty success: it works one day, not the next, etc.

Skype is only around 26mb in size, so you could ask someone (outside of UAE) to download for you, rename the file, then upload to somewhere like megaupload

Alternatively, you could always download a particular file stored on someone else's server.
