    After 3 years of her Bold 9780 it was time for a new phone. I convinced her to go for the Z10 (like me ;-)) she wanted a iPhone 5 but fortunately she went for the BlackBerry Z10! Where is Skype was the first question. The preview version in the app world does not do the trick. Well BBM will be available for ios and android. Problem solved. Or I will side load it. Got her a red flip case, looks nice with the white Z10.
    Everybody at her work said: is it a iPhone?? Beautiful! What? A BlackBerry? Nice. Beautiful!

    Yes. BlackBerry. Beautiful!

    Well done!
    That's one of biggest things BBRY needs: BB10 in people's hands so others can see it there!

    I don't use Skype. (yet?)
    So just curious, what's deficient about the BB World Skype release?

    Doesn't work. IM is okay. But I can just text or use some other app for that. Skype is for video calls. It crashes when making a call. When receiving a call it gives no notification. The few times it does it says you are on a call but it just stays in the menu. You don't see anything. I've managed to get it to work a total of three times. I could hear my GF but I couldn't see her. All I saw was my own face. According to her she could both hear and see me. It's very buggy. From what I've read on here people have different issues with it.

    I've used Skype for voice calls, and that works great for me. I haven't tried video calls, so I can't speak about the quality of those.

    Did you get the last update? I had those issues with the first version, after the update it started to work fine.

    I used Skype video call on my Z10 for my sister who could not attend a funeral I went to (out of state and last minute). It worked and she was able to see and hear the whole thing. My only gripe is that it is not a fast fluid interface. Typing doesn't work like in native apps. Tying is not bad, just not great like the BB keyboard should be. Also, the app just looks dated. The new versions of Skype on other platforms just look and feel better.

    Good to hear, I also went from a 9780 to the Z10, and haven't looked back, took a couple days to get going, 6 months in, love it as much as I did back in March!

    The two colours actually feel differently don't they? I've heard the black Z feels way better than the white one.

    Yes. I have the latest update. Although that was on my old Z10 (my old one broke ). I haven't tried it on this one.

    I tested out Skype video with my husband, and it worked great. I was quite surprised.
