Default Unlocked Incredible 2 Banning Skype via Verizon? How to fix that?

I tried to buy and Incredible S but the vendor sent me an Incredible 2 -- Verizon's version of the device. The phone is unlocked, and will be used outside of the U.S. But the Skype app seems to be abiding by Verizon's "rules" -- i.e. Skype calls must use Verizon phone services. The phone has never had and will not have a Verizon account.

Does anyone know a way around this? I want to use Skype as I travel (Mexico, Central America), using various SIM cards.

Can I sever the connection between Verizon and the Skype app? I want Skype to forget all about Verizon.

Thanks much for help!

Have you tried the Skype app in the Market instead of the app that came with the phone?

Default And that

did the trick -- thanks. It is impossible it seems to remove the Verizon-branded app, but I stopped the automatic updates, downloaded the non-Verizon version from Google Play, and it all seems to be working fine. Thanks so much!

The HTC DROID Incredible 2 launched on April 28th and does well enough to follow the original up. It's not going to be a must-have device for those who own and enjoy the original, but folks new to the DROID party who want an HTC phone shouldn&#... Read More
