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

  5. 5
    In the Skype application, we need to go to our own profile by pressing the icon at the top right-hand corner of the screen
    .
    There is a circle, and within that will be a profile photo if one has been added. If a profile photo has not been added, the circle will be empty, apart from the outline of a head and shoulders. There is also a green dot on the bottom right edge of the icon. That means we are online, and we are active.

    After pressing on the photo icon, it will take us to our profile
    .
    Our profile photo can be seen in the square at the top left, and we have some information about us.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  7. 7
    We have an option at the bottom that says, "add credit", written in blue
    .
    Next to it there is a circle with an "S" inside. This is the Skype credit icon.

  8. 8
    Let's press down on this, and it's going to take us into this function
    .
    It's going to redirect us to the website, and then it's going to allow us to buy different currencies.

  9. 9
    At the top of the screen that appears it says, "Choose the amount of Skype Credit you'd like to add." We have two dollar amounts to choose from, "$10.00" and "$25.00"
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  10. 10
    Press the "USD" at the bottom right corner of the screen
    .
    "USD" is in blue text, and there's a blue arrow to the right of it. This is the currency type.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  11. 11
    This will bring up all the different currencies, and we can choose any one of them
    .
    There are about 15 or 20 options. Choose the one most appropriate for your particular area. If the currency type is changed, it will change the symbols next to the Skype Credit amounts on the screen.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  12. 12
    Now, choose the amount desired by tapping on that amount and putting a dot in the circle in front of the amount
    .
    This will also highlight the amount in blue.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  13. 13
    Next, we have the option to "Enable Auto-recharge when I'm running low on credit"
    .
    This means that if we're running low on credit, then the Skype application will automatically give more credit. We will have to pay for this of course, but it just means that we won't have to go through the hassle or the work of actually doing it ourselves. The application will just do it for us. For this demonstration, we won't be choosing this option.

  14. 14
    Once satisfied with the options, press the "Continue" button
    .
    It is a green elongated circle button, and it says "Continue" in the middle. Press down on that, and it's going to take us to our wallet.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  15. 15
    Next, we'll need to enter our billing address
    .
    This is the same as the address of your credit or debit card. Enter first name, last name, address, city, zip code, and the billing country/region. We're not going to enter this information because we are not going to pay for the credit right now. However, we can explain how to proceed.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  16. 16
    Once satisfied with the information entered, press the "Continue" button at the bottom of the screen
    .
    Again, it is a green elongated circle, and it says "Continue" in the middle. After pressing on that, the next screen that will appear is to input credit or debit card data. Input that information, and then the application will be able to take money from that account in order to pay for the credit that it will then put onto the phone. That will be the final step, and then that credit will be on the Microsoft Lumia 535.
