What are the certain conditions when ionic compounds conduct an electric current? Why are ionic compounds not always used as conductors?

Ionic compounds conduct an electric current when the ions are free to move about. This usally means they are in solution form (as ions) or the solid ionic compound is molten. I don't understand the second part of the question. Please clarify and repost if this part of the answer doesn't help.
