    Hi there!

    I just saw the post of Skype being available for the Q10 or Dev C. The first thing I did was get the .bar and install on my Z10.

    *drum roll sound fx* IT WORKS!

    Device: Z10STL100-1 @ 10.0.10.738 (Limited Edition ^_^)
    Bar file: Unmodified Q10 edition

    Note: No BlackBerry Employee leaked or installed this on my device. I achieved this by my self. BLACKBERRY DID NOT HELP ME

    Bug found:

    When you are in a Skype conversation and you receive a normal call, you can answer the normal call. Here's the problem. When you end your normal call Skype freezes, screen turns black and crashes.

    ---

    Lets clear things up;

    - Why I wont share the .bar file
    I wont because I dont feel comfortable doing this as this might ruin my bussiness relationship with certain people.
    I dont understand why people are calling me greedy and such. Image this happening to your own products.

    - How?
    I did not use Sachup or Dingleberry. And I am not going to tell how I did do it as I promised a BlackBerry employee to keep this trick to myself. Again, I dont want to ruin my bussiness relationship over a simple file.

    And some questions which were asked. (General Skype questions mostly)

    - Does it integrate with the Hub?
    It does. It has its own Skype icon in the Hub. Also when you open a conversation from the Hub the conversation view in Skype is opened.

    - Does it integrate with the Contacts?
    - It kinda does. Skype contacts wont be shown as seperate contacts like Facebook and Twitter. But there is a seperate Skype list item where it shows your username. On the Dev Alpha C (or Q10) it's not grayed out; when you click on it , it will open Skype up with the appropriate profile.

    - Does it work when the app is closed?
    Yes. Both calls and chat messages. When you receive an message it pops up in the Hub, and when you are called the Skype App will be openend. You do have to be signed in (obviously).

    I dont think that BlackBerry would be really happy if I did that. Sorry guys, I'm not going to share the .bar file.

    On the other hand; Skype is also integrated in the Hub on the Z10. It has its own icon

    I used the Q10 version, which is officially available in BlackBerry World right now. And that version is 3.1.439.21.

    Update: Although the minimal required version to install this .bar is PlayBook OS 2.0 it does not work on the PlayBook.

    Does anyone know if it will allow Skypein calls? That's the main reason I need it as I use a Skype number instead of a fixed landline.

    Agreed unless he proves it by giving the bar file

    If you can get the bar, then why don't you share it?
    Unless you illegally hacked to get it from the server?

    To get the Dev Alpha C means he is a developer and maybe not allowed to share the bar.
