    androlib.com might have an apk you can download, I know that last time I went over there the Skype Beta was in the 'Top of the Day' section

    Um, might have been but I'm not sure either. I don't really use Skype so I didn't pay much attention, but if I see it again I'll check it out.

    Any news on Skype for the Sprint Android phones? Or is it still just for Verizon?
    Thanks.

    I have a Desire and I went this way instead of iPhone. I know it's in it's infancy but I have Skype credit and I want to use my mobile to call any phone when I'm OS. Help?

    In addition. I have my phone with Telstra and I'm happy just to use WiFi for my Skype.

    Fring or sipdroid can do Skype.. you just can't get the official Skype app unless you're Verizon

    I have tried to use skype on my droid using wifi and it makes me turn the wifi off and use my verizon data plan. This is going to be pointless for me when i go to iraq. I should be able to use skype with wifi correct if anyone can help i would really appreciate it. If not what is the best voip program i can use with my phone

    I downloaded fring and created a skype account, but cant get fring to recognize it. I tried to make a video call from my pc on skype to my phone and it didn't work. Any advice?
