    Hi,
    I am about to have a HTC desire delivered and noticed that skype will not work on one! I also noticed that 3 netwok UK sells desires with skype working.
    I read that 3 uk are using a gateway to get calls to skype on the internet. Does anyone know how to set up a desire to use the 3 free skype service the same as they sell it for at 3 network?

    ALso does :)anyone have skype working at all on a desire????


    Thanks
    Mat

    Not sure what your thinking is possible without being on 3, im sure one of the more experienced users will be along shortly to either confirm or deny that :)

    I have skype running on a desire through nimbuzz.

    Hi
    thanks for the reply. I will be using my existing sim which 3 network and pay as you go with an internet bolt on for extra internet.
    Hi you are using nimbuz does it use a lot of data to run skype in the back ground?
    :)


    Thanks
    Mat

    Not used it for many calls so far but i just tested it and it used about 0.8 MB for a 2 minute phone call.

    If you are also on 3 im sure there was a link on this site that pointed to the skype that 3 mobile use, i'll have a wee look for you.

    Yes great to have some advice I have got almost all the info together so I can get on with updating and installing stuff on the desire when it arrives.

    Thanks
