Maybe Verizon and a couple of other carriers paid them to provide it.
Wow. It took you a while to figure it out.

Yes, that's exactly what happened. Verizon (and probably the others) and Skype entered into a contractual agreement for Skype to be available on their BlackBerry devices. Verizon PAID (presumably a lot of money) for the privilege. It's called business.

And again, you didn't use the word "supported" in your post. You said "I seriously doubt there ever will be skype for BlackBerry, except for BB 10. " which is wrong since there already IS "skype for BlackBerry".

C'mon guys...he's one of the good guys here...seriously. I have read most all of his posts...and this thread has maybe a single oversight in that's he's missing a word or two to qualify what he really means. I've seen much worse here...

We should cut him some slack...

Man this forum is hostile....

While a man is being berated for not saying what he thought he said, then corrected for stating what he meant to say rather than what he had actually said...... Over on the iPhone boards they are dancing in circles, tossing flowers in the air, patting each other on the backside and talking about how awesome they are

I think you nailed it on the head.

This forum used to be the best forum for blackberry related information and support. Now it became a sounding board for the few "chosen" ones... Very sad...

To be honest, I don't really care.

Here's my position: The BlackBerry is a dying platform. I switched over to a Windows Phone last week. No regrets. If traffic is down here, it really has no impact on me. The moderators (all volunteers) get NOTHING from this forum, outside of the fact that we do (or did) like contributing here. Most of the original mods are gone. Absentee owner.

And Skype is available and works great on my new phone (as opposed to my prior BB 9900).

If you prefer a more vibrant, and equally nasty environment, feel free to go to Crackberry. There you can read all about how BB 10 is going to save the world, and that the PlayBook really, really is the best tablet around.

Right.

Bye.
