I don't think the problem is finding skype but actually get it stable and working.
For some strange reason if you visit the skype mobile site it would say my handset (N
isn't compatible, yet they advertise skype on n8 in the photo. The ovistore version can install but every now & again it breaks & stops working.
I've used both fring & skype, when they play up & stop working they both crash & restart. Nokia has obviously done something very wrong with belle particularly with voip. After many months, neither skype, fring nor nokia has cared to address the issues with belle.
Users have found work arounds, such as making specific system files read only (hacked phones) to get fring working. Skype appears to need a particular theme set otherwise it crashes. I have 2 themes installed, always default, skype started crashing a few days ago, removed ms office mobile & all the apps I installed in the past month. Still no luck.
My backup is using skype from 3 which doesn't use the phones voip functions & android/ios versions of fring. I find myself asking how much longer can nokia remain with it, windows phones can't compre. Nice cameras Nokia but that alone can't win the game.
shibesh how do you make video calls from 701 coz i have the same phone and m not able to make video calls from skype but i can make voice call via skype

Why isnt my new device supported on your site or ovi.store? (Nokia 808 )
And why is there no video support for symbian? this is realy bad. (should quit using skype for this).
I thoight Skype were waiting for Nokia to get the Feature pack two update out, and then give us an updated version of the app, but.. so far, nothing. Maybe they are waiting for more people to get on FP2..
This version of Skype on Nokia Belle always loses connection when switching from Wifi to 3G/GSM, and from 3G/GSM to Wifi. It does not reconnect. Please have this fixed ASAP!!!
