Skype says that it is not available for my Tour
JLL-Blackberry
When I go to www.Skype.com/vzw as instructed by the text message sent from VZW for my Blackberry Tour 9630 running Device version 5.0.0.591, I get the following message:
 
"Sorry, Skype mobile is not available for your phone. 
 
Switch to one of Verizon's best-selling Blackberry and Android 3G smartphones."
 
However, everything that appears on Skype and the VZW web sites indicates that my phone is supported.  What gives?
When I respond to VZW and tell them that I can't get Skype, all they do is send me the same text message saying:
"Free MSG: To get the Skype mobile app to ur phone, click on link: www.Skype.com/vzw.  Text STOP to quit or HELP for info. MSG&Data Rates May Aply."
