Default Bold 9930 available on T-Mobile?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi I want to upgrade from my curve 9300 whilst still using my old sim card (the sim is on a contract) and would love to have a phone with skype enabled, as I've heard the bold 9900 doesn't work with skype but the 9930 does?
However I can't find the 9930 in t mobile online store or even carphone warehouse of phones4U, I have only found it on the verizon site, which I assume would arrive locked to the verizon network. Is there any way to get the bold 9930 on T-Mobile or unlocked?

Any help would be much appreciated.
Thanks

This is a very bad plan.
Skype only works on Verizon devices ON THE VERIZON network.
The 9930 can be SIM card unlocked to work on T-Mobile, but the best you will get is EDGE (no 3G or 4G) and no Skype.

It would get 3G in the UK where I believe the OP is from, but they still won't get Skype. The best solution in the UK is to purchase a 9900 from Three, as they have Skype for their devices.
