    Skype keeps freezing up on me I rebooted my computer and it still happened is anyone having this problem today?

  • Kilian Sibera

    I am also using internet explorer 11….. I am stating all this because whoever is the admin of skype forums keeps asking the same questions and repeating the same solutions….. I am using explorer 11,i ‘ve already reset hosts file, i’ve checked my router and put exceptions for the two ports, checked firewall settings, windows 7 in already sp1, i have already reinstalled skype several times…. but still can’t connect properly to skype. Skype status keeps turning does not truly connect, friends can not see i am connected sometimes, and occasionally can have a video call but there is always a message saying ” you are not connected wait while we try to reconnect you ” even though I am already having a conversation with someone!!! Instant messaging does not seem to work properly either!!!So I repeat my question is skype not working properly since the beginning of march!!!!

  • Kilian Sibera

    Since the beginning of March ,and after latest update, I can log in skype windows app but the status circle keeps turning and I can not really connect to my account. Instant messaging does not work and calls can sometimes work but it keeps saying ” problem with connection wait while we try to reconnect you ” even though I am talking to someone!!! I’ve tried reinstalling skype , I have tried solutions posted on skype forums ( Check firewall, reset hosts file, Put execptions on router ….. nothing works. I am using Windows 7 and it is already sp1!!! Is Skype down Since microsoft changed it to Cloud technology???????

    I updated my phone to Windows 10 and since doing so i am having issues connecting to video chat with my parents. Is there a glitch between W10 and Skype?

  • Scott58

    Using IPad, messages are not being received, but OK on laptop, also after reloading the app for IPad, some of my contact names have changed and photos not being shown. This started about the 31st July and is still ongoing. Also IPad sometimes does not ring on incoming calls but laptop does. When is a proper working app going to be available that mirrors the version for windows? frustrated!!!

  • Cindy Tong

    After updating the Skype for iPhone 6 : problem is a new message would show on the notification bar. Now we’re talking about that little pop up banner you get at the top of the screen. It shows me part of the message a contact sends to me. Now the problem starts when I open Skype and go to the conversation window. The problem is, is that the message doesn’t even appear in the chat window. I pull down notification center and the message my contact sent is literally right there, but when I swipe up the notification center, back to the conversation window, the message is nowhere to be found. I cannot send or revived message anymore . and it does not sync with other phone or desktop Skype anymore .

  • Henry

    Tried calling my mum and dad last night, which I do every Tuesday. But for some reason the video chat would not connect with them so used FaceTime on iPad. Actually works really well and may consider changing to that. Took me a while over the phone to teach my mum and dad how to use FaceTime though lol.
