Preparing new HTC TyTN II for SKYPE usage and GPS

I have read in multiple places that the new Windows Mobile 6.1 does not work with SKYPE? Is this true? If so anyway to work around the issue?

If not should I downgrade my OS right away when I get the TyTN II?

Does the front camera work for video calling with SKYPE? If not what does it work with?

Does the GPS work no matter what country I am in?

Anything else I should do to my phone right away to prpare it for lots of international skype usage.

Thanks

ahh thank you for reminding me to reinstall skype... i recently and depressingly cracked the screen on my beloved orbit 1 ... so i had to buy a new orbit 2 .. how fickle am i? lol

yes skype does does work wm6.1 .. im not sure if the video calling works because i seem to be the only person i know with a video call camera in my skype list *rolls eyes*

GPS works all over the world as long as your not in cave or similar structure lol

hope this helps

Hi...

I am running winmo 6.1 on my TMobile Kaiser - i can't run Skype on it...

i guess it depends on where you get your phone from - as to if it will have WinMo 6.1 installed on it....

If it doesn't then it will have WinMo 6 installed and you will be cool ...

What were you going to use to connect to Skype? Unless you are are connecting via Wifi you might find that the data charges are more than the the cost of the phone call ;-)

When i roam i pay £7 per Mb.... which aint cheap :D

(So don't forget to get a copy of NoData.. See Here)

Cheers

Not last time I used it, no.

I gave up on Fring too. Bought a netgear skype phone. It does the trick and saves my phone battery!
