Installing Skype on HTC HD2

6

If you are on this page you probably have an HTC HD2 phone and looking to install Skype on it. There are a lot of forums about how compatible is Skype with windows 6.5 and most of them say that it was.. but Skype stopped supporting windows 6.5. Yet seems that Skype works fine on my HTC HD2 Windows 6.5 from T-mobile.  The installation was simple just unzip and upload the CAB file.SkypeWM_v3.0.0.256

After installing it took some time to login. I turned on Wifi and it worked. First it asked me to use headsets. I did not… So I could not hear the other side but they could hear me.

 

Plugged in the Headset and it worked. I also turned off the Wifi and still worked.  I am glad it works fine was at the point of installing Android on my HTC HD2. Lets hope now that Microsoft bought Skype it will run on MS and will be supported. Still dont understand why Skype is not supporting it anymore …

Only thing you should be careful with is your Data plan as the traffic may eat up your 200mb limit if you are not on a bigger plan

It seems hostmonster is cleaning their servers again.

I have been hosting with them for 18 months with few issues. I also referred more then 10 clients to them. The last referral was just yesterday and today January 10th 2009… all I noticed that my web page was taken down without a single warning…

Contact them and asked for a reason. They said: you are using too much server resources. I told them I had this site up and running for the last 6 months without any change in script/visitors/database so what happened?

The referred me to the error log to check. One of the support suggested that I should delete empty databases. I told her you allow us to use 100 db in your plan why would my 33 databases be an issue even if it is empty??

The reinstated my site and I started working on the error log and scripts only 5 minutes later they just took down the whole site and killed my cpanel access. I had to beg to get back my data…

Moving on .. AVOID hostmonster if you are thinking of a website with more than 100 visitors a day. Once you go up bit with visitors they will take your site down.
