raydog2k: sorry I havent read the whole thread
are you able to run skype and make skype to skype calls with the V845 ?
Prompted by your question, I just downloaded and installed Skype on my 845.
I just made a SkypeOut call to my other cell phone...so I'm thinking Skype to Skype shouldn't be an issue.
This is good news as the last time I tried Skype on the 845 several weeks ago it didn't support the 2.8" screen.....and though you could see your contacts, you couldn't IM or call anyone....the next screen failed to appear.
But this appears to have been fixed! Skype works fine on the 845 now.
Thanks for asking.....Or I wouldn't have tried it for a while yet.
