Re: skype

My wife has Skype on her phone which is with Three (3) Uk. However, and this is the challenge to anyone seeing this, I have tried but can not install it on mine (unlocked 9900 ex Vodafone). We know Skype is not available on the Blackberry App world but through the Planet 3, the Three network makes it available to their clients. 

Question: What could I be needing for my phone? Would it need flashing? Anything else?

Thanks for reading.

Re: skype

How much aré you willing to bet?:-) I wanted to paste a pintura for you buy there is no option to attach it. My problem is not that. It is to replicate what she has in her handset. She has skype on her phone and works beautifully under the three network in the UK.

Re: skype

I think there is some misunderstanding. If your wife is with BB10 then yes, she certanly could have a skype. I wanted to say that you can't have it with your bold 9900.

Re: skype

But, as mentioned above, you can have a third party app like IM+.

Re: skype

Thanks. I have not been able to see how you can call though through IM+. I believe it is for messaging only - need to use it for calls ;-( Any other ideas will be very welcome

Re: skype

No misunderstanding. She has a Blackberry Bold 9 9 0 0 (nine nine zero zero) - no Q10. I am fully aware of this.

And skype. Why is it so strange?

Re: skype

Yep, turned out that some can really use skype using the planet 3, verizon and else. But the info about that isa bit old. So you can't download it from planet 3? What error does it return?
