check apk file, because someone can insert trojan into it. You can check it by MD5, it should be CB5100495DAD27C94CB0751118168666 for 188.8.131.523
My partner is facing similar problems, and is looking for the exact same solution of using the older version. I know you have posted Skype version v184.108.40.2063 (I have also posted in another thread where someone is advising the same), but just wanted to know, ( and taking into consideration Mkalex's warning about the threat of a trojan) if you have managed to successfuly get Skype working again on your mobile phone?
If so, can you please please please pm me the link with instructions of how and where I can download and install the working version of Skype, so me and my partner can chat again, as the cost of calling cards is proving to be far too costly.
Many thanks in advance.
Awesome, I just found the old copy of Skype(v220.127.116.113 ). Just copy the APK to your SD card and run it.
Just Google "Skype version v18.104.22.1683" and the first thing that comes up is from Mobile Planet.
Rhdevries: Thank you for your post! Just wanted to ask you, how will Skype be downloaded from the mentioned website?
Will I need to download Skype from that website to my laptop then from my laptop to my phone?
Can I just go to the website using the internet on my phone, and download it directly from my mobile phone?
I downloaded the APK to my computer and then transfered to mySD card. Then run from there. However you also should be able to do it directly with your phone.

Rhdevries: I have just followed your instructions (although it was using her mob phone rather than the SD Card as you advised), with my partner by on Facebook by going to Mobile Planet and used the first mirror site. She logged out of Skype, and when she downloaded the file via the link, an error message occurred saying:
"There is a problem in parsing the package"
I have not got the foggiest of ideas what this means? Corrupt file perhaps?
Are you able to send me a private message, with the link to the website and the actual download link you used that worked for you? and if possible, a complete step by step guide through each part of the process?
Please do accept my apology for asking so much, but I honestly am a complete newbie to all this, so your help will be much appreciated.
Many thanks in advance.
