If your device is not listed above:
Skype video calling should still work on your device, but call quality may not be perfect just yet as we have yet to certify your device. Rest assured, we’re working hard to certify all Android handsets, including yours. You can always modify the video calling settings from the Settings menu as well.

NOTE: Operator data charges may apply. We recommend using an unlimited data plan or WiFi connection.

    I have an American Samsung Galaxy Vibrant with the English language.
    Some time ago I downloaded Skype from üttülğ Plei but eventually delete it.
