Hello everyone, I could do with some advice with Skype phone calls. I have the latest version. When I make a phone call to another Skype user, Skype closes after a few seconds of us talking. Any ideas as to what is wrong?
Are you using Skype itself, as opposed to the Skype hand-held phones? If you are both using the Skype Phones I think the drop-out might be due to the fact that they use similar technology to mobiles (G3 I think), so they are possibly affected by poor signal problems just like mobiles.
I have never used the phone system to talk to another Skype user, to be honest never thought of doing that, when it works so well with mic & spkrs.
But even though phoning is free, (though isn't there a £10 a month charge?) not much good if you can only talk for a few seconds.
Yes I know it is free computer to computer, but I thought there was a charge Phone to Phone. However, I have just had a look via Google - ya know what I am gonna get for me and my partner? You've guessed it, a couple of Skype phones :-)
Though I know that does not help with your drop-out problem. If I can find some more info on that I will get back to you - unless someone else can come up with the proper answer sooner.
