    I have an at&t Pre3 activated with a at&t sim card and I got Skype from the App Catalog with no issues. The only problem I got is that Skype eats my battery like crazy. I can probably get only 2 hours just for having it connected.

    did you try the root install method.

    i got skype before unlocking. i wonder if i will lose access to skype from the app cat if do a complete wipe. wifes got my pre 3 right now and wont be able to check to see if it still comes up in the app cat after unlocking.

    Never tried the root install 'cos I don't know where to get the ipk file. I wish someone will just post a copy of the veer or verizon file somewhere so I can try.

    I think I should have just used my ATT SIM to activate phone before and gotten skype, then unlock. Wifes got your phone....how many wifes

    I'm about to give up on skype.....

    I'm in Singapore using an unlocked AT&T Pre3. I managed to download it from the US App Catalog and installed it with no problems.

    I'm on Singtel, using the AT&T webOS 2.2.3 rom
    (phone came with 2.2.0 -- I used Impostah to activate US App Catalog, and then doctored to 2.2.3 before restoring my profile)

    i got my pre 3 (US model) yesterday and activated with my at&t sim. than i was able to download skype from app catalog, later i swapped my sim card with another card to unlock it. so far so good, no problem at all.

    My problem is resolved.

    There is another thread in this forum titled "installing skype on ATT pre 3". There is a post in there by 370gt that involves using 7zip to replace att.tar file inside the doctor image with the one from the UK version.

    It not only got rid of the AT&T (useless to me) software, but it also fixed a few other things such as issues I was having with sending emails.

    I've tried this solution described in first post of this thread. No success. Do you know sources of these doctor files for UK or maybe for Germany as well?

    I have a ATT Pre3 unlocked and using it with Rogers. Once I modified the Doctor image and Removed AT&T stuff from there Skype just showed up on its own. I can make calls through Rogers or Skype. I can also chat over Skype, so yes I have it working, but never had to download it from the catalog, it just got it on it's own.

    wow guys, its just skype. i understand the importance of video to video messages, and video calls, but seriously, is this really that big of a deal? I get it, military to wife, and bf to gf and sexskypeing but for real. sit at your computer, which apparently all of you have, and use skype. holy moly.

    personally IF it was available, i would download it, but unless im in the app cataloge and see skype, im not downloading it.. i would get it for the "i have skype on my phone" effect only.. or to skype my exgirlfriend so i can see her ta-ta's

    guess its that important for some of you to see your ex's ta-ta's lol

    UNLESS there is a REALLY SIMPLE way to do it, like how simple webos doctor is, her ta-ta's will be forever imprinted in my memory =P

    No need to get rude. Everyone has their needs, even if they are different than your's.

    Honestly, it is extremely simple to get Skype installed.

    1) download the EU or Verizon doctor
    2) open it with a ZIP program
    3) extract wr.tar (from the EU doctor, unsure of VZW)
    4) extract the skype ipk
    5) plug in your Pre 3 and enable USB
    6) copy it over
    7) load WOSQI and go to command line
    8) type in the installer command
    9) reboot.

    Simple. Took all of 5 minutes.
