Skyple doesn't install at all

Hi,

Trying to install Skype for windows phone, but the link in text message sent by skype fails to install properly.

 

HW/SW:

-Phone: Samsung Focus (SGH-i917)

-Carrier: AT&T Wireless

-Software: Windows Phone 7.5  (zune says 7.10 - 7720)

 

Steps:

- From my laptop, i browse to :

  <http://www.skype.com/intl/en-us/get-skype/on-your-mobile/download/skype-for-windows-phone/>

- I click the button Get Skype for WIndows Phone

  A pop displays "Enter your mobile number and we'll do the magic"

- I enter my ph number and click Get Skype

 

Now on my phone:

- I receive a text message with the link http://www.skype.com/m

- I click the link and arrive on the page :

  Redirect to: http://m.skype.com/mcs/publish/2015/17741)

  It asks me "Are you a Verizon customer?"

- I answer "No" (i'm At&t)

  I am now redirected to http://m.skype.com/mcs/publish/2015/60405

  The page shows:

  a) the Skype logo at the top with a green horizontal bar below it;

  b) in the middle of the page, there is a blue circle containing a white arrow/link (no text);

  c) towards the the bottom of the page, there is a "skype FAQ" arrow/link, and

  d) below that a drop down to select the language and the link

       "Go to Skype.com Desktop site"

- I click the link in the middle of the page (b) and arrive on

   http://m.skype.com/mcs/publish/2015/18244?lang=

  This page is like the one described above but with now arrow/link in the middle of the page (b)

 

And that's it. Nothing happens and no step to do.

Should I try the "Yes" to the Verizon question?

 

Thank for any help you can provide.
