Hi Shahzada,

For the style you are using, go into the relevant .sty file (e.g. moderncvstylecasual.sty for the casual style) and find the symbol you want to change (e.g. if you want to change fax, find \@fax) which gives you:

  1. \ifthenelse{\isundefined{\@fax}}{}{\addtofooter{\faxsymbol\@fax}}


all you then need to do is change the \faxsymbol to include your icon image using the usual \includegraphics{skype.png}. You may need to do this twice in the style file for the CV footer and the cover letter footer.
