    Once the phone is activated, we'll see the lock screen.
    Swipe the lock screen up, and this will take us to the home screen.

    On the home screen, we need to find the Skype tile.
    It has a blue background, and in the middle there is the Skype logo, which is a white circle with a blue "S" inside. If Skype has not been pinned to the home screen, then swipe left and find it in the "Apps" menu.

    Once the Skype tile has been located, press down on it, and this will allow us to enter the application.
    Once Skype has loaded, we want to show you in this video how to add a mobile phone contact to the Skype application. What this means is we might want to call or contact a friend who doesn't actually use Skype, or doesn't have the Skype video service. We'll still be able to phone them using the Skype application, but we'll phone them directly on their mobile phone as if we were calling any mobile number. The difference between that and calling them normally is that you're using the actual Skype application to phone them. It's like using a different phone service or a different company. Therefore, we may want to add a mobile phone number to a contact, or create a contact in this application that only has a mobile phone number.

    First, we need to press the icon at the bottom right-hand corner of the screen.
    It is three white dots in a row. This is the ellipsis, and if we press down on this, it's going to bring up some options.

    When satisfied with the options, we can press the checkmark icon at the bottom of the screen.

    Now, the information has been added, and a profile has been created with that person's name and number.
