Default Skype on the Wizard

I'd like to get Skype working on the Wizard. I've tried searching but there doesn't seem to be a comprehensive guide.

I also just tried downloading from Skype.com for the pocketpc 312mhz version and it downloads and installs ok, however at the EULA stage the text doesn't all fit on screen so I am unable to accept the EULA and test it.

Can anyone give any hints and tips? Perhaps the I-Mate cab is available as apparently that may be optimised for the Wizard.

I have a Wizard with the new T Mobile UK firmware.

Many thanks for your help.

program1 (new), you've got to search a little (great place, though, for other freeware).

I've installed the low-cpu version and even with the wizard overclocked around 240 I find the voice quality not adequate enough.

...with overclocking you're able to use high cpu and therefor better quality. Also there are some threads around to improve mic & phone sounds...

I tried the low cpu beta install linked from the freecabs site, same issue, I get the eula and just see a t at the end and no yes / no / i agree to progress past this.

Anyone else have any ideas?

I'm assuming all of these require the use of skype, what other software is out there that lets you use VoiP on these phones? (We use VoiP at the office, but not Skype)

...i don't know any other VoIP software because at this moment there are 3 million skype users online, and i wanna stay in contact with them, so i didn't looked for any other. Or can other VoIP-servers connect with skype servers?...
