Hi guys... As you can see in this article:
http://www.engadget.com/2010/03/25/s...with-wifi-off/

Skype has been released... BUT FOR VERIZON CUSTOMERS ONLY!

But don't worry.. there is a way to get it, just download Market Enabler and set a custom value "310012" < for Verizon.

Then you will be able to download Skype Mobile but if you start it you are going to get the message "Sorry Skype couldn't detect your phone number" and will quit...

I'm sure there is a way to bypass this too... the question is how ?



EDIT:
The new Skype with wifi/data chat/calling is out today.. find it on the market! YAY

I noticed one thing interesting, on my Droid I have the leaked sbf aka 2.1 build ese53 and it shows up under Market Enabler as "310004" and Skype as well as the various Fios apps are not available to me in the market. Whats funny though is I still have the Verizon tab on my Market and a few Verizon apps are listed such as vcast media manager and vzw tones.

Does anyone have a direct link to the apk for Skype?

I can upload the apk when I'm back at home after few hours.

I wonder from where/which value is Skype trying to get the phone number...

there a lot of xml files in the zip posted at http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=652232
One in particular is called loading.xml
Any chance editing this or another xml might help it connect?

Interesting!!

Us 'three' users on 2.1 maybe able to edit the dial out number and be able to have the app working properly. As the 'skype on 3 beta' only works on 1.5 hero roms.
