    For the life of me I cannot seem to find skype any where for the pre 3. But there's a font facing camera so obviously you have to be able to do something with it right?!?

    The search function of the forums actually works pretty well. Skype on the Pre 3 has numerous threads already, along with instructions.

    I beg to differ, it doesn't in some cases.
    Try for yourself, in advanced search on the Pre3 Forum "skype", "how install skype", "skype pre3" don't bring anything useful. The only one I found was http://forums.precentral.net/hp-pre-...nloadable.html but I can't see Skype in my catalogue and I still don't know how to install it either..
    Was sucked into Palm when I bought the glorious Treo650, somehow subsequent phones didn't live up to expectations.

    you should be able to download Skype in the US app catalog.
    after you install it, I think the easiest way to Skype IM/call is through Just Type.

    (1) Sign in via the Messaging app
    (2) minimize the Messaging app
    (3) Use Just Type to locate the person you want to call/IM
    (4) then select their Skype account
    (5) select whether you want to Chat or Call them.

    Maybe there's the issue then, I'm presently in Italy. Yet nowhere have I read something about the exclusivity on US soil for Skype.

    Skype is integrated in the messaging application. Just log in with your account details and everything will work fine.

    This is the case with my QWERTZ Pre 3 - but I can vaguely remember to have read that there is no Skype on the US version (or on the 16GB version, only).
    Preł (iPhone 4), TouchPad 32 GB (PlayBook 16 GB)

    I beg to differ against your beg to differ. I clicked on the Pre 3 forum, clicked Search this Forum, entered Skype as my search criteria, and whammo.

    Learn to use forums better. 8th or 9th hit all in big capital letters.

    The package can't be distributed publicly.

    Maybe some generous person will email you the file if you post your address here.
