Thumbs up They are still sold!!

Here in India they are still selling Windows Phone 7 models such as Lumia 800 and 900. This is a crappy decision by Microsoft and they've got to change it back!!

Thanks cap. Everyone knows how do (or do not) these petitions work. Nobody needs your explanations.

No more Skype for WP7, I really doubt MS will listen our begging. I must say I am very disapointed. I planed to use my Lumia 710 for many year still, but not working now without Skype.

So, is there anything to do? I have a custom rom installed, will there be a version that works (rooted) or how MS blocked Skype from our devices?

So... Skype works just fine in old Windows Mobile. How about porting that version to WP7, is that how difficult? Opera for WM has already been ported to WP7: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1385071

The problem of old skype is - several tabs in the UI - not possible to port this to WP as it was with Opera.
