    Installing Skype on an Android phone requires v2.1, I have v1.6 and I'm tryyng to avoid the hassle of upgrading an LG GT540 phone to 2.1.

    Can anyone suggest a workaround? I've tried logging onto my Skype account on the web hoping I could then make a call (as if I were at a public computer without the Skype app installed) but that doesn't seem to be an option. Any suggestions?

    Thanks.

    Upgrading to 2.1 is no hassle. Simply go the LG website, and follow all the on-screen instructions. It is fairly simple and doesn't require you to be a techie.
