Iam new to internet chating .i have opened an yahoo account but i dont know how to add friends online please help me to do so.


If you are using Yahoo Messenger simply open your Yahoo Messenger program, log in using your log in information. Then at the top of the screen it says "Contacts" click this option then choose add contact. Now you can enter people with either their screen name, email address, or phone number if they have it posted. The request will be sent and must be accepted by the other person to become friends.

If you are just trying to add contacts in your yahoo mail, just log in> go to mail> then contacts> then add contacts and enter their email address.

Hopefully this helped!

I can sign onto skyp, but none of my friends appear on, however, I called my friend and he was on skype and he can see other people, yet I cannot see anyone. What should I do?


Search your email contacts to see who's on Skype:

Click the Directory tab and click the link See friends who are already on Skype.
You'll see an Add contacts screen.

Under Check your email contacts, click in the checkbox(es) beside the email accounts you have.
If you have a Yahoo account, type in your username and password then click Search email contacts.
Skype uses your Yahoo login to check if your contacts are on Skype - it never saves it, ever.

Wait for Skype to search your contacts.
If Skype finds a match, it will list the friends who also use Skype.

Click in the checkbox beside the people you want to talk to on Skype.
Then click Add contact.

Write an introduction message so they know who you are.
Click OK to send. Depending on their security, you can IM them. When they accept your invitation, you will be able to see when they are online and call them, too.
Add a specific person:

Click the Directory tab and go to Find people.

Click in the box and type in their name, email address or Skype Name.
Click Search. Wait for Skype to search.

In the list, find the person you're looking for. Check details like location and click this icon info_16x16_white.png to double check it's them.
Click on them, then click Add contact. This will open a Say hello window.

Click in the message box and type an introduction message so they know who you are.
Click OK to send. When they accept your invitation, you will be able to see when they are online and call them, too.
Add a phone or mobile number:

Click New and choose New Contact.

Find the link Save a phone number in your contact list.
Click on it. This opens an Add a contact window.
add_phonenr_as_contact.png

In this window, enter the person's name, select Home, Office, Mobile or the other options from the dropdown list, then click on the flag to choose the country they are in.
Click in the box beside the flag and type in the phone number.

Check it. If it's correct, click Save phone number.
This saves the number in your Contact list.

Gtalk contacts not display


Hi,
your gtalk must be offline so in chat column where you name is showing click on drop down arrow and select online mode and everyone will show you online whom so ever are.

When I attempt to make contact using skype ,my contact can see me but I cannot see him.and vice versa. My contact is quite proficient in the use of skype so the problem is probebly at my end.


try "adding" your friend to your contacts. You can do so by clicking on their name in the skype chat box with a right click, and select "add contact info".

If that doesn't work, then try to check your "online" status in the menu bar at the top of skype, and have your friend do the same.

The only other option is to close out skype and re open it, or restart your computers.

Good luck :)

Contact on line but wont connect


[quote=ouquoi]Hello,
i have skype 1.4.084 on XP SP2 and i'm behind a router SMC Baricade.
All works fine one month ago !

And i can't view my friends who are online.
If some one contact me i see him online.

Somebody know how to solve the problem ?

thanks[/quote]


delete config.xml

Do not just install "over" the old version
quite often some files are not updated correct and get corrupt.

You can find Config.xml at:

Open Windows explorer select "show hidden files" in folder options

Paste or type %AppData%Skype in Windows or IE address bar.

Once you have found your Skype folder open your Skype username folder and look for the config.xml file.

delete config.xml any changes manually edited in this config.xml will be lost

exit Skype first

This config.xml will be rebuilt without any data loss, but hopefully error free, with next start of Skype.
Once you login again Skype will rebuild you config.xml file and download all you contacts.
