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.

Dear Readers,

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.

Best regards,
Elaine
