Go the to MyInfo tab and set your status to Sign Out. Once you're signed out the back button works as expected and exits Skype. EDIT: As of v2.9.0.315 (at least) Skype has simplified the log out mechanism: In the home screen of Skype simply do this:

Skype publish their app directly into specific country's Android Markets, they don't publish it to the "Rest of the world Market", Vietnam doesn't have its own Market, it uses the "Rest of The World Market". Skype's FAQ says: Why can’t I download Skype from the Android Market? The Android Market only distributes applications in certain ...

I believe you should be able to switch between Loudspeaker and Earpiece like this in the screenshot at the bottom while in a call. On my Samsung Galaxy 3 running a custom 4.0.3 ROM, it's working fine. But after searching on Skype Forums I found this - Speaker only on Android device Looks like a lot of people are having the same issue from initial releases ...

Skype for Android has a couple versions. Most are WiFi-only, so you would be able to use them no problem except that the G1 is not in Skype's list of supported devices, so you won't find it in the Market. Looks like it's Verizon-exclusive. The newest version won't run on your phone even if you grab it pseudo-legally; I'm not sure about older versions. ...

The sync traffic for gmail/facebook/weather/... is neglectable (If you have normal text messages with small attachments). For Skype voice calls, you should estimate 4-7 KiB/s (~ 25 MiB/h). Users always underestimate the 1GB included traffic. I had the same thought, that it could get tight at the end of the month. But I forgot that: At home and at work ...

I'm not positive when it was added, but if you open one of the duplicate contacts and edit it, you can press Menu>Join to collapse two entries into one.

I'm afraid that if the official Skype app does not work then you are probably out of luck. Skype do not let third party applications use their service, so you are unlikely to find anything that works. I suspect the issue is down to the CPU speed of the HTC Wildfire, which is only 528mhz. It's likely that the processor simply can't keep up with the demands ...

There are regional and phone network restrictions for Skype. They may well be different for Nokia phones than Android phones, and your friend may not be on the same phone network as you. There (is now) one official Skype app in the Play Store, and one I know of that isn't in Play Store: Skype on Three- Three UK customers only, follow directions on the ...

Get the pcgod's mumble client for android (don't get it from the market because the market one is not the pcgod uploader and is very old and not updated). Mumble is an open source VOIP client that is available for windows and linux. However, this VOIP is a client-server one , hence requires both the clients to connect to a server. While you may choose a ...

Bandwidth consumption depends on the codec that the app will use. Skype uses SILK or G729 (see wikipedia for their bandwidth consumption). You can see here http://searchvoip.techtarget.com.au/articles/23239-VoIP-codecs-Day-Three-Low-bandwidth-codecs more low bandwidth codecs and search for an application that support one of them. I have used SipDroid that ...

You have multiple options to solve this: Go to Settings->Apps, scroll to Skype, open it, and hit the "Clear Defaults" button If that for some reason does not work: simply install some other VoIP app, try to call a person again (now you should be able to chose), hangup, and remove the other VoIP app again Try Default App Manager Lite, DefaultApp Reset, or ...

Don't install any random Skype APK that you find on the web as it will charge for calls. You MUST install the APK from the Three website to not be charged. AS an aside, who told you that Three do not support the Wildfire? They have massive sales of Wildfires on Three and they ARE officially supported by the network. It is completely legal to install an ...

What's odd is that there seem to be three different Skype apps for Android, but most people can only see one or the other available. There's Skype available in the Market and currently at v1.0.0.659. This lists: Skype-to-Skype calls over 3G or WiFi Data plan or WiFi connection required (calling in U.S - WiFi only) Then there's Skype Mobile for ...

Ok, I just found out how you can quit skype. Go to the main screen in the app and click the left button. After that click sign out, than you'll be able to quit with the return button. Some have already posted this but I think it wasn't completely clear to people who are new to android (like me) :P

What country are you in? Skype have only got an exclusive deal with Verizon in the US, outside the US it isn't restricted to any carrier AFAIK. If you go to an international version of the Skype site, like http://www.skype.com/intl/en/get-skype/on-your-mobile/download/skype-for-android there's a different Skype app that will work on any Android 2.1 phone ...

I recently (two nights ago) installed Skype on my Xoom, and it appears to work fine, with chat, video, and audio calling available. This was on the UK market, Wifi version (so no provider issues), stock 3.2. This is the market item I have installed.

Since you're rooted, you could also try the newest version of Google Talk. It isn't officially supported but I use it on my EVO just fine (I run CyanogenMod 7, though). ooVoo has a desktop client and a mobile app, enabling mobile to PC video calls (supports the EVO, but haven't tried it myself). There also appears to be a plugin for the Yahoo! Messenger ...
