    Hi, following story is for all who gave up easily....

    My Z30 developed horrible quality of the normal voice phone calls (yes, I still occasionally receive a few!). Z30 HD calling was long distant mirage, with quality of the calls comparable to old phones with the dial...

    Just before that, I have installed Skype for android (via SNAP) and immediately removed it, as I have no video (for whatever reason). Without reboot, I have then installed version from the BB AppWorld, and with successful completion of the urgent video call, with wired headset, I uninstalled that version as well... I don't like the stuff

    Little did I know that my Z30 HD calling was lost. Received calls after this sounded as on speakerphone, distant, echoi.. Speakerphone was OK, BT OK and wired headset OK...Reboot, swear, reboot and repeat, no help. Two button reset, more swearing, still no dice. So I believed I have fried the speaker.

    As I received Passport in the meanwhile , I have securely wiped the Z30. Trying again....more swearing...still nothing - confirming my hardware theory. So, almost in desperation, I loaded OS agian (it was runnig 10.3.1.1154 to start with, so I had that one handy...). And then - HD calling is back! Tested, sounds like new...

    Moral of the story: get yourself a BlackBerry Passport, it resolves a lot of problem.

    Unfortunately, swearing did not help at all...

    Why would you use the droid version of skype instead of the Bbry version? Been using the Bbry version for over a year with no problems

    Good question, I guess I just didn't think properly... :-)

    Here is my skype story. The BB10 one was running like ****, so i put on the snap version. It installs fine, but then says it cannot sign in. So i deleted it and tried to put skype BB10 back on. It won't install. Give an error and wont work. Tried several times. Now I have no skype on my phone. Not too pleased.

    ** update.. I was able to install the amazon app store version. Thankfully.

    I have had Skype from Snap running on my Z10 running 10.2.1, and it works much better than the bbw version on my phone. Love it.
