Hey guys, does anyone know if skype works on this thing? I got a few last day and it said that there's skype on it. Sure enough there's the app there, but I can't seem to log on. I normally use skype on my iphone, but this thing is asking for a skype phone number. Anyone knows how to log in without this or has purchased the number and log in and used skype with the m003?Thanks

Hi - replied to your post on our thread, but didn't realise exactly what your issue was.It does require a phone number to log on, but it doesn't actually use the number for anything - I think this is a legacy of the app being the same one that is used in the Android phones. It doesn't really matter what number you put in here, although it would probably be best to put in a real phone number.I put in my own mobile phone number when logging in and we were able to use the IM functionality. We didn't try out the voice-calling functionality, however, so I'm afraid I can't say whether this works, although I'd be pretty certain that it should work fine using the in-built microphone and speakers.Hope this helps.

Well it keeps saying that it can't log on using my phone's internet connection. The tablet is hooked up to wifi and browsing seems to be working fine tho.I did try the mic, with the recording software. Its really soft so I'd like to know how well that works with skype.Also mines seem to be constantly crashing.

Do you have a phonenumber in your skype profile at the PC ? If yes, you need to use this also in the android version of skype, then it should work, at least this was it what had done it for me.
