Hiya, we have a HTC Wildfire and  Nokia.  Both connected at home via WIFI.  Using Skype the voice (no camera), is just not smooth, slow and in batches.  Also tried desktop PC with the HTC - same thing.

Using the same network, we tried it on a desktop PC and a Netbook and that was much better. 

Anyone had good success with hand phones?

Off topic a bit as I have an iPhone but whenever I've used skype on my phone it's sounded perfect.

Have you got the latest version of skype?

Yeah ... the HTC and Nokia phones were just bought about a month or so ago and downloaded accordingly.

My desktop PC had the old version but it was much better quality. I just upgraded the Skype version just a few minutes ago just for the heck of it.

Edit.  Looks like the  lower CPU with the Wildfire perhaps ....

My Ex missus has a Wildfire which is over a year old now and Skype was unusable. I just don't think it has the CPU for it.

You could try Viber if you only have a few contacts you call.
