I'm having a hard time locating the skype apk on 2.2. Can anyone point me in the right direction so I can get rid of it? Thanks.

Definitely is not. Even did a search in root explorer for skype and found nothing. Something fishy is going on. Is there an app that can tell me where another app is running from?

are you rooted? if not, then i dont think its possible because its one of the apps that verizon installed with the rest of its "package"

it's system/app/Skype_mobile_live.apk

Just checked on my phone.

Are you using root explorer (the paid app)? Rooting doesn't give your regular FILES app permission to access system directories.

I am using root explorer and am rooted. Was not able to find it but was able to remove it through the market which I thought wasn't possible.

Are you on a droid x? did you install a 3rd party skype program? Your phone sounds magical lol.
