    Hello all, I just wanted to say I am so happy that my Z10 is now complete....

    When I picked up my Z10 on launch day back in Feb, I knew that Skype was not yet available but would be coming shortly. This is an important app for me, because my girlfriend lives in England and this what we use to communicate with when I am away from my computer...
    I signed up to Crackberry and have been watching the forums and learning about sideloading apps, but never took the plunge, that is until yesterday.. I had downloaded the Skype .bar file a week ago but it just sat on my computer while I debated on putting it on or holding off until next week when its officially released. I have also been watching the forums on the leaked releases and I do admit it had me curious as to try them or not, but why should I, after all my Z10 has been running perfectly since the day I bought it and why mess with something that wasn't broke..and also knowing that 10.1 will probably be released in the next few days..
    Well after the latest release of the the leak, thanks to lbfe, I decided to throw caution to the wind and give it a try, after all, if it all went horribly wrong, I knew I had the Crackberry community to rely on and help me out. I have to say the experience was pretty painless thanks to all of the tips I got from these forums. Once the OS was installed and all my files restored, I was so happy that my Z10 was still perfect and then I remembered about that Skype .bar file I had sitting on my computer and decided to sideload my very first app. Again, with the help of all of you and these forums, it was relatively painless and needless to say, Skype is now successfully on my phone and working perfectly, so from me and my girlfriend, Thank you all.....My white Z10, 10.1 OS and Skype - Complete...-img_00000089.jpg My white Z10, 10.1 OS and Skype - Complete...-img_00000088.jpg

    Nicely done. I hardly ever use Skype, hence I'm in no hurry to get it. Albeit, I do want 10.1.*; but I'm waiting for the official AT&T release...

    Nice job! I'm going to wait for Bell to release 10.1 before in update as I use my phone for work too. But just in case you were wondering if Skype works on 10.0. It does, no need to update to a 10.1 leak force it.

    If your GF in England had a Z10 wouldn't Skype be redundant? Since you could use BBM voice or video?
