As a new user of Skype I have a couple of problems. A couple of friends on this forum have added me to their contacts and I have added them. Now when they show as on line, I send a message maybe just evening ***** but get no reply? Is it because of my B.O. or something with Skype? The other thing is that I have a contanct who always shows as off line (and me to him) even though we are both online? Any help would be appreciated. BTW this happens on my netbook, XP and Firefox, my lappie Windows7 and Firefox also on my phone Nokia E71 symbian system.
