Hi, I was using this for 3 months so I can answer the question. I think that the actuality of C3-00 questions is way down by now but still.
Any way, C3-00 has the VoIP (Voice over IP) telephony locked. It has nothing to do with technical limitations, it is a deliberate marketing move to get phone providers support and %% for budget phone series. So don't waste your time by searching or by begging Skype/Nokia to do something.
If sor some reason you are not readu to migrate to some other model, there is a partial but functional solution. You still can find Skype 1.0.5 beta Java version. It works just fine on C3-00. Unfortunately by default you can only text chat with others BUT others can call you over Skype and you can pick up the calls. I got my copy from here:
and I added it here:
Copy, upload to the root directory of your phone memory card, navigate (using for instance Menu->Applications->Extras->Memory card) and launch. Do NOT agree on update when proposed. Ask one of your Skype contacts to call you. Enjoy! (at least partially :-)

i have posted info about how to CALL Skype with Nokia C3-01 and X3-02 ( NOT C3-00 ! ) several times and was blamed for advertising, and I'll take my chance again:
See my post on the Skype Support Network (click here) or just see my forum signature below this post ! Hope this helped.
This is only for calling, NOT for chat ( IM ) on Skype - to chat you can download Java Skype a.k.a. Skype Lite but you can't make calls with it.

Just to avoid any confusion, what maherzidi is linking to is exactly the same thing that www123456 described in January: the 2009-era, limited version of Skype.
does nokia c3,c5,and asha 311,support skype and nimbuzz.
hyderali, for Nokia Asha 311 please see here:http://community.skype.com/t5/Symbian/Can-skype-us
For Nokia C3-00 this method is not working, and you also can't download Skype for chat to any Nokia S40 phone, because Microsoft switched it off completely.
The video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qGh1lZaoPBM is working for the following phones:
Nokia C3-01 Touch and Type
Nokia X3-02 Touch and Type
Nokia 6260 slide
Nokia Asha 302
Nokia Asha 303
Nokia Asha 311
