I just recently bought a C6-01 to replace my old E66. I installed skype and fring from Ovi Store. Voice calls from skype and fring are not working at all. Skype voice calls are displaying "skype call failed" while fring voice calls are hanging the phone totally. Chat sessions from skype and fring are working though. I tried re-installing it from skype and fring websites but still has the same problem. Re-installed it again from Ovi Store and still with the same problems. I checked if there is any available software update on the C6-01 online but none available.
This must be a Nokia problem as it happens both on Skype and Fring applications. I have been using these 2 applications on my other S60 Nokia phones and it works ok. Nokia's software quality on newly released models seem to be deteriorating. This is truly a bad reputation on Nokia considering all logged problems/issues in this forum. It is just a matter of one person posting all these on Facebook. I wonder if Nokia intends to compete with iPhones and Samsung smart phones. Not to mention that Android phones are becoming to be popular now. I hope Nokia will fix these problems quickly or these will definitely affect their sales.
Today I discovered a new problem on the C6-01. I sent a SMS to a bunch of numbers. One of the recipient has an invalid number and the SMS was kept in the outbox. There were NO options of moving the message from the outbox to the DRAFT folder, neither deleting the message from the outbox folder. I could not even re-open the message in the outbox folder at all. The message is just stuck there.
Exactely same problem with my C6-01 and Skype.
Problem is common as you can see from various forums , for instance on skype.com and similar.
My phone has latest software release of both Skype and Nokia installed, but it's still not possible to do / answer voice-calls by Skype (tried Fring also with same effect).
when you check skype's website and view the symbian phones that caters the skype app, you won't find c6-01. but in ovi, it says that it is compatible and that you can actually install in on your phone. i installed it on my c6-01 but when i make a skype-skype call from my phone, the person i'm calling didn't receive any call. it's plain frustrating
where do you found skype for downloading? Presentli neither in ovi store nor in skype website there is the possibility to download skype program for nokia c6-01
NOKIA C6-01 says it is a Smart Phone, but it will never alow Skype on it, and even we can;t find the skype download link in OVI Store.
What is it??
Buddy i have being FRing on my NOkia c6-01 and i called my frnd who is on FRING and we have done Video chat it was perfect but ur connection shud be on Wi-fi or 3G.
Please try to download app from Fring offcial website inspite downloading from nokia store.
Same follows on Skype both apps are working fine on NOKIA C6-01.
