(****Update****)
It's asking me for my skype plan:

Standard
Unlimited for USA and Canada
Skype Pro Germany


but in the GUI on my software, i have skype pro active. what setting do i use/check?




Ok, we run a bes 4.0 here, with just a generic default policy. When i tried to start IM+, i got this error on my 8703e

the application im_skype has attempted to open a connection to a location inside the firewall and outside the firewall which is not allowed by your IT Policy.


----------

update, it said it searched for a new configuration setting? and it worked....im logging in now, and will do a followup if things go well.


7 day trial.

Per the SKYPE website, there is NO SKYPE client for the BB.

Download Skype for Windows xxx8211; Business version (with MSI)

ALGolfer, if you cannot locate your Skype plan, please select Standard.

As to your error message please disable firewall on your device: Options-> Security Options-> Firewall.
Then please press Menu button and select Edit default permissions and change all values to Allow.

If you have any questions you are welcome to post them here.

You are right. There is no native Skype client for mobile devices.

Incredible application * I Re-iterate *, however I just have one question.


That my login/password/account information is kept confidential, since I am supplying my skype credentials to a 3rd party application.


Also, I hope that german government doesn't have a relationship with your company I have read some articles that german government pay companies who supply voip/phone services with payments to be able to datamine calls, same way u.s government uses echelon, and other NSA techniques.

Skype login and password are used solely to get you connected to Skype at the moment of sign in. The information is not stored anywhere at our side.

SHAPE has nothing to do with this, of course.
