    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?

    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!
