C6-01 does not work skype and fring

C6-01 does not work skype and fring

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.

Re: C6-01 does not work with skype and fring + SMS problem when stuck in Outbox folder

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.

Re: C6-01 does not work skype and fring

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).

Re: C6-01 does not work skype and fring

Resolved as far as normal voice-calls are concerned : there's a NOKIA software-update available since yesterday which allows Skype to work fine with C6-01 (Symbian^3) also. Still no video-calls possible, while FRING released a new version this week which enables video-calls on named mobile.

Re: C6-01 does not work skype and fring

What update do you mean? Can you give link to this update?
I've installed new firmware v14.002 and then hard reset and install Skype.
But I still can't make voice call in Skype.

Anybody else can make voice calls with Skype?

Re: C6-01 does not work skype and fring

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

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??

Re: C6-01 does not work skype and fring

Fring is not supported for symbian Anna or yet to be released belle... So if you guys have done the firmware update to Anna, then Fring won't work.
