I downloaded it using opera mini (m.opera.com).
Unfortunately, I cannot use it, though. It gives an error message (error starting skype lite class net.rim.device.api.ui.scrollview not found). I hope you have better luck with this than I did.
I have the same problem with the message: net.rim.device.api.ui.scrollview. I'd be greatful of any help! Many thanks!
anyone know why blackberry 8530 does not support the skype application? I tried downloading it, and says that skype is not supported for this model.
Skype has not made any recent announcements about plans to release versions of the Skype app for older BlackBerry OS devices - that includes OS 6 and 7. Skype Lite, upon which we were able to use Skype, was decommissioned in January 2013: https://support.skype.com/en/category/SKYPE_LITE/
Skype is now available on the BlackBerry Z10 and Q10 running at minimum the 10.1 OS.
