I used to use Skype all the time and it worked great! The quality on the video and recording is good. But I got signed out, I signed back in but now it can't do anything. It freezes and want do ANYTHING! I can't load contacts or try and text just a screen showing my profile and then not really anything other than the Skype platform and stuff. I would really like this problem fixed, I'm so sad I can't use this anymore because it doesn't work. PLEASE fix this!!

I have actually had terrible experiences with Skype. I have actually utilized it on my phone, on my computer and also on my iPad. None have actually been good. The voice and also video clip high quality are constantly horrible and also the client service is constantly awful. I have had to call them many times that it is starting to get bothersome.

It doesn't matter what I've changed my status before, it is always reset to active. If I tap on notification message, the app never shows the latest messages and always give me very old messages. Sometimes I cannot enter to one of the group chats or my contact profiles either. it doesn't matter how much tapping on them.
