    Skype Wont Start

    For some reason I've never been able to get skype to work on my Q9c...It downloads fine, but when i go to start it it freezes for a long period then finally says skype can not start!?!?! Does the 6.1 update have anything to do with this?

    I do not think the WM6.1 update has anything to do with it.
    There's been a lot of problems with skype running correctly with WM6.0
    Anyways, try to uninstall and make sure you download the right version of skype from the website.

    I believe skype needs 3G or higher in order to work properly. When you go to settings, the only options are 3G or Wifi. Yes it will work on edge, but I don't believe it's fast enough. I say this because everytime my phone drops to edge from 3G, skype locks up or logs off. I remedied the situation by keeping my phone locked at 3G. If you could somehow lock your phone at Evdo, that might help. But like anyone1979 says, there's a new version coming out.

    Download and install the latest skype .CAB file and then download the real verison of the file from here.
    This is a double installation so don't confuse it with anything else.
    First download the CAB file.
    On your device install the CAB first, the 2.1skype version
    Install the second file now, the 2.2.0.45 skype.
    Enter the program and start the skype.
