    I have Wildfire with 3 network and they have installed Skype on it. But whenever I get calls from Skype I don't know who is calling since it only gives a specific number but not the name (ID) of the person. Anyone knows how can I change the settings of Skype so that instead of number the name 9ID) should appear?

    If you are using 3, skype will be in your favourites and the setup will be in your download folder.

    If its not you can download from My3. Good Luck :rolleyes:

    Have you tried using Skype via Vopium or someother alternative application. Search on google for Skype alternative for android. I have Skype so I don't know much but my friends use skype using alternative applications like Vopium.

    Good Luck!

    can you make free calls to skype phones using vopium? I'm guessing not, but it's worth asking.

    Alright people! This is the situation; there are many out there like myself a few hours ago absolutely doing your nut in because goddamn skype won't work properly! Yea, I know the android software for skype is on the market however it is a real architectural disaster! You download it and you might experience cracking sounds in the background and it renders the conversation you wish to indulge in absolutely incomprehendable. Even better, I am a "3" customer and this is the best part - bought a phone the other day which was SIMLOCK FREE, notice that network phones usually blocked and three handsets have modified software which means that there was NO "3 customer products/software" on it such as skype. It is a different application to the android market skype - the only issue with that is it will only work through your phone's internet and you must be a 3 customer - for those that aren't on three this information is going to be frustrating but I am not here to brag or put you down but to try and help as much as I can. Skype have really annoyed me with locking Fring and Nizzbuzz(i think that's the right name) out denying the use of their application - they really haven't helped themselves there, yet more annoyingly their technical department ought to be sacked for keeping us loyal customers waiting for such a long time and let us wait further...seriously, the ought to be customer driven and at the rate its going they will lose decent customers.

    Anyhow, for 3 customers type in google: Three UK "Skype" APK - Android @ MoDaCo (I didn't read the agreement with regards to these posts therefore I am not putting the web page in), press on the first link and download the zip. Then, get you're sd card out of the phone, plug it into an adapter, open the zip and transfer the file in the zip to the mini sd card, place it back into your phone, download FileBrowser Silver Lite from android market on your phone, install the application work it and voila. My poor wildfire works perfectly! - where before I had that weird shuttering/cracking noise now it's crystal clear. For the rest of you I hope that skype will sort something out because they are treating you with contempt and I have lost a lot of respect for them. Best of luck to all of you. Many thanks

    Skype is not working on my HTC Wildfire 2.2.1. Voice call is not going one. Is I need to downgrade it or something else?
