You can sideload the BAR file if you like. Or if Skype is loaded while you are in another country (even Hong Kong) it will work while in China. Your problem is China, not BlackBerry nor AppWorld.

Re: Skype not available!

It also depends on OS version. Is it up-to-date?

No, in China, it will not appear in App World regardless of the OS version.

Re: Skype not available!

im in canada searching for skype for my classic. The internet shows it available for blackberry in blackberry world  but when I search blackberry world it does not come up. I can find it on my pc where it is offerered for download. So Im wondering if I can download it to my pc and then upload to my classic. Even when I search for it in blackberry world on my pc I cant find it, only seems to show up in my pc browser. SO whats up with this? Why cant I find it on my BB?

Re: Skype not available!

Skype has been available in the past for BlackBerry10 devices, but I can't find it now on the PC.

 

Do you have a link to what you are seeing?

Could be that it is not available for the Classic.
