    Got the following email a short while ago. Went into BBW to see if there's a new version and there isn't. Wonder if this is strict for Android phones?

    Probably. In any case you can still use Skype.

    Nah, it's legit... they've been going out for weeks.

    Microsoft-owned Skype has sent an email to people using smartphones with Android 2.2 or older alerting them about retiring the service for them.

    “We've noticed that you are, or previously were, signed into Skype on a phone running the Android 2.2 (or below) operating system. We’re sorry to inform you that we are now retiring all Skype apps that work on these older versions of the Android operating system. As a result, within the next few weeks, you'll no longer be able to sign in and use Skype on any Android 2.2 (or below) phone. If possible, we recommend that you upgrade your phone to a newer version of Android to continue using Skype,” it said in a statement.


    But if you’ve been using Skype on a more recent Android device, the above does not apply, the statement elaborated.

    My wife's skype account got "compromised" a few weeks back,.. woke up to a call from our credit card company asking if we had made $200 in charges at a "Skype Luxembourg".

    Tried to recover the account but it was nearly impossible since they've merged it all with Microsoft accounts.

    I really wish every international person that I needed to contact had BBM voice, but... good luck with that ever happening.
