OK, weird behavior, and I suspect the Skype test call echo thing might be in a hung status of sorts since it stays always online. Can anyone test and report local time/date and location?

I have two Skype accounts, one for work and one for life. I can IM, call and video call between a PC logged into one and N900 into the other. I can call our office landline from my N900 through Skype. Looks like endso is right, bullet (for now) dodged.

Contractually...
there are a lot of Gordian Knot-esque mutually binding agreements between various companies that were involved ...(at least with the n8x0..) with the making of the nxx0...
I don't believe any one of them can just dictate policy...remove this..change that...alter the other...etc. without the ok of the other players...

Meaning...I am not sure macroswift can extricate skype on the nxx0 line.
Or else it would have been long done by now.
They just would have had to flip that little virtual switch ..and "poof" no more skype for the nxx0 ...
It isn't rocket science...it's contractual obligation that hinders the shut down...
I mean really ...
When I really look at the topic...
sure we may possibly be lucky...
sure we may be dodging not bullets...freakin' lasers and rail guns by now frankly..
sure it may be because we are small community of users...

But really ...we are a loud bunch who have been very highly critical and disdainful of microsoft ...for a long time now...
If anything....we are a bad reminder...a thorn they would like to be rid of ...

The reality is...that much more current...relevant...devices...with more end users...and larger communities ...have lost their skype functionality...
and yet we are still here.
It has been 3 years since this thread was created..
3 years of microsoft cutting the functionality for devices...
but we are still here.

Possibly things may change....we may still lose our skype...
who knows?
can't rule out the possible...
but logic and the statistical odds thus far seem to point to a long standing issue that has been our bane and our saving grace...

We could never get the proprietary goods for our devices...
all the black boxes and blobs which could have freed our devices...
and why couldn't we?
Because of the various companies who all ,made contractual agreements with one another while developing the nxx0's
They won't let their fellows have knowledge of their work...
Nor will they let us be privy to it...
So...everything is tied up in a nice little Limbo...
and I believe that includes our skype functionality...

One thing I do know for certain...
I just got home ...
I pulled out my n800s and n810s ....
fired them up...(actually I have one n800 that i run all day and night for the cat and puppy playing 1000's of baroque tunes on xmms...so I didn't have to fire one up..it was already running....
Started up skype on the pair of them...
called my cell...
it rang...I answered...I had a good conversation with myself...(the echo helped make it feel more conversational ....)
Voila.
Skype still functions on n8x0's ....
for now...
possibly until they fall apart ...
gazillions of years from now...

OK, just arranged an incoming transatlantic call from an apple phone, my N900 rang and I could answer.
Also made a sucessful outgoing transatlantic call to same apple phone, but it still seems wonky.
It seems that contacts drift on and offline on my N900 and my N900 status does the same on my desktop client without explanation.
Anyways it is working for me, though I somehow still can't make a call or see an online status between my Ubuntu Skype 5.3.0.1 Linux Beta over my home laptop which works for showing online and calling transatlantic to an apple phone, but somehow doesn't show my N900 online via either home wifi and my 3.5G service.

They said that Android users should update to the newest version on july 1st to be able to use Skype... Well, old version is still usable. There are MANY features missing in their new client. Maybe that's why the old protocol is still active? I can't make calls using my Playstation Vita for about a month now, but I can receive calls on it though

confirmed.
also...
just made calls on my n800's and n810's

with more and more certainty I believe skype is tied up in a gordian knot of contractual obligation with the other participants involved in the creation of the N.I.T.'s

I can see no other reason since many greater and lesser devices that came before and after the N.I.T.'s...
have had skype functionality severed already.

Still...never know...

it would be great if we had a mole in Microsoft ...
a "fly on the wall" so to speak...
who could confirm or deny...
