Description Jeremy Gillespie (reporter) 2010-03-01 01:07:53 UTC
1. Connect to skype
2. Open up the phone application
3. Navigate to a contact who you previously talked to via skype (skype icon
clearly in list to the left of the contacts avatar picture) using their
telephone number (not their skype name)
4. Click the contact, you now only get the cellular methods to call or SMS. 

After clicking the contact you should get an option to call them via skype out.
 It is great that skype is built into the phone but it should be fully
integrated into the phone application allowing quick redialing of contacts via
skype out.  There should be a "Call with Skype" button similar to the button
you get in the phone contacts.

There is no option to redial a contact via skype only cell or SMS.  If you want
to call them back you have to take the additional steps of pulling up the
contact, clicking on them and then selecting "Call with Skype".  


This is likely an enhancement as the functionality works perfectly, it seems to
be a bit of oversight given how integrated skype is into the n900 though. 
Without the option to "Call with skype" from the phone applications contacts
menu it is a little clunky to redial a contact via skype.
