I dont think this will help you, as I tried but could not obtain full functionality.

Agree that would be great, but to date no information is forthcoming from Skype or from Nokia, regarding the symbian phones that remain incompatible with current software.

 

There is silence from both, and I wrote to Nokia about this issue, sent a reference number to my communication, but to date there has not been a reply from Nokia. There appears to be no information on the Skype website regarding this issue, the only announcement as such is on the OVI website, whicxh states currently no Skype software available for the Nokia 701 and presume, 603 too.

 

Best wishes

William

I can now confirm I received a reply from Nokia and the Skype software is now available in the Nokia Store, to which I logged in and downloaded, it does work for calls and text, but to date no video calls. At least this is a move in the right direction with an effort,

 

Please see reply from Nokia:

Yes, today i tried and found that the SKype can be downloaded through the ovistores, it should not be missing again, as it is avialable around 3 months before and somehow couldn't be found recently, hope it is permanently available...
