Hello, I'm international truck driver. I just bought vodafone usb dongle. All my friends using this because they can use skype just for free in all europe and it's not necessary to top up. I mean no internet but skype is still working. So why I can't use skype? It shows that my usb dongle is connected, no internet (except vodafone.co.uk) and skype is not working too. So my friends can use skype for free in all europe and i can't, why?

I'm not sure how your friends are getting online but they shouldn't be.
If they havn't topped up the device then there should be no way to access anything other than the Vodafone website.
They must have found some kind of loophole in the system that allows them online without credit.

I don't understand this info: http://www.vodafone.co.uk/shop/dongles-and-mobile-
I choosing Pay as you go and the model of dongle K4201.
There is price £20 for 1GB UK (for up to 30 days) and for device.
My dad paid this price and use 1 month this dongle for Skype in Europe: Spain and France.

Vodafone UK don't offer Skype as part of any of our packages.
You can use Skype by downloading an app for example, but you'll be using your data allowance.
If it's a Pay as you go device you should have credit to be able to do anything. If your friend has managed somehow to get around this we'd be very interested to hear how he managed this.

becouse you are stupid and mail here, and that is not allowed.this is same like: you make 2,3 or more robbery, and ask the police why the last robbery did not have much money than in the first robbery.That is why. You mention on the official site that is flawed and that the same abuse. I can not imagine you with your brains

I have this dongle about a month. I'm international truck driver... And everything worked fine.
This is GREAT for us, truck drivers. We can communicate with our family for free. This is not something new it's working more than year. Was stopped in june but work again from august. And now it's not working again. Where is the problem and why we don't know but we want to start working again. All i have is to top up my account about 20 pounds to keep my sim card active. I can't open webpage or other application but skype worked perfect.

We found NEW French data sticks with free skype.
So will buy it in next few weeks and use free skype again. I must do something to get cheap communication.
One day... vodafone stick will start working again..
