how to install Skype for iPhone 3G


if you have a compatible version still on your computer (that you yourself downloaded from the app store), double-click the .ipa file and overwrite the newer version of Skype, sync and you are done.


if you don't, then you can do the following:
- sync your iPhone to have all apps and content on your computer.
- download the .ipa file for a compatible version of Skype e.g. from [invalid URL], double-click the .ipa file and overwrite the newer version of Skype
- you have to jailbreak your iPhone. this in itself is legal. here is a good guide :[invalid URL]
(in this step Cydia will be automatically installed)
- open Cydia
- under Manage/Sources add this source: [invalid URL]
- install AppSync 4+ and Installous from Hackulo
- restart iPhone
- connect iPhone to your computer by USB-Cable
- sync


this has worked, even though i don't know much about IT.

note: i have a Mac, but it should work with PC too. please confirm.
