    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. When purchasing a Microsoft Lumia 535, the Skype application should already be installed on the phone; however, if this is not the case, Skype will need to be downloaded.

    To download Skype, we need to go to the Microsoft Store.
    The tile has a blue background. It will probably have some text on it related to the different applications. The images and text can vary depending on what applications were recently viewed. The Store logo is a common image that will appear on the tile. It is a 3D bag with a window inside it.

    At the bottom left-hand corner of the screen will be an "install" button that will need to be pressed in order to install this application.
    On the video demonstration, that button currently says "view", but it will say "install" if the Skype application has not been installed. This will begin the installation of the app. Once Skype has been downloaded and installed, the word on the button will change to "view".

    Underneath the application in tiny green letters, it will say "New". This indicates that the Skype application has been installed.

    We are already logged in, so we can press on the "Sign in" button to sign into our account.

    Then it will ask if we want to "Link to an existing Skype account".
    What this means is if you have a Skype account you've been using on another device, then you can link this phone to that account, so you don't have to create a totally new account and delete the old one.

    For this demonstration, we will press "yes" because it is very useful.
    We want to know if someone is trying to contact us, even if the application is turned off.

    Now, the Skype application has loaded.

The green dot means the at the application is activated, and we are online.
