How to Get Skype on Your Impression

Save

The Samsung Impression A877 phone can run applications, including the Skype app, downloaded through the phone's Web browser. Your A877 must have an Internet connection -- either through Wi-Fi or 3G -- to download apps. Skype uses an Internet connection to enable video chatting, voice calls and instant messaging. The Impression is not a smartphone, but it can still run apps coded in the Javascript language. Because of this, each app will take complete control of the phone while it's running.

  • Unlock your Impression and touch the "Menu" button. Scroll through the options and select "Games & Apps."

  • Select "Shop Applications." Your phone will launch the browser and connect to the application store.

  • Select the search box, type "Skype" and press "Enter."

  • Choose the Skype app from the search results, and select the "Install" button. Wait while it downloads and installs. The file is several megabytes, which may take a few minutes on a 3G connection or a few seconds on Wi-Fi. You can find the Skype app in the Games & Downloads folder once it has installed.

Tips & Warnings

  • You can download Skype directly using the browser on your Impression (see link in Resources).
