New account, no friends appear online

Hi there, I just opened a new Skype account, but every time I log in no friends appear to be online although I know they are..? I've added them successfully. Could it be that they haven't accepted my add?

Really appreciate some help.. Been confused about this for a while.

Thanks,

Mat

Hi Mat,

more a checklist than a solution...

Do your friends appear in the list with a question mark? In that case they have not replied to your invitation (or they have blocked contact with people not already in their list.)

Just to make sure you're online: call "echo123" - type that in the filed for the phone number and record a message. When it plays back - is everything fine? If not, something is wrong with your setup.

Check your (Windows) firewall and ensure that "Skype.exe" is listed in the exceptions.

Check your router and ensure that UPnP ports are forwarded to port# 63492. (This should be done automatically, but if you have a chance, try to check it.)
The port number is the same as in Skype (Tools>Options>Advanced>Connection). Check the box to use port 80 and 443 as alternatives.

Check the options and see if there is anything that would block incoming calls.

If you succeed, please leave a comment here. If not, do the same and we'll go form there.

Good luck

I created a Skype account and now i have no idea how to delete it .


Unlike some other programs, Skype does not allow you to actually delete your account.
This means you will still show up if and when others search for you or try to add you as a contact.
You can, however, delete your Skype account from your PC.
Doing so removes the account in question from the list of options available when you sign into Skype.
Log out of Skype and quit the program entirely.
Click the "Start" button in the lower left corner of your screen, then type "run" (without quotes) into the "Search programs and files" field that appears.
Click the Run option under Programs in the list of results.
This opens a new window.


Enter the term "%appdata%\skype" into the new window. Do not include the quotation marks.
Click "OK." This opens another new window.


Locate the folder that has the same name as the account you wish to delete in the list that appears in this new window.
Right-click this folder, then click "Delete" in the list of options that appears.
Click "Yes" in the window that pops up to ask if you are sure you wish to delete the folder.
You have now successfully deleted the Skype account from your PC.

To find out if somebody has blocked you or not follow these steps :
1

Sign on to your Yahoo Messenger account and add the person to your list of friends. Check randomly to see if they are online at different times. If they are not, and you expect them to be, they may be blocking you.

2

Access the Yahoo Messenger homepage with your Internet browser and click "Sign Up" at the top right of the page.

3

Follow the sign up steps and enter your Yahoo e-mail address and your new account name and password.

4

Log on to your new Yahoo Messenger account.

Add your friend from your other account to the new account's friend list, and if they are online, check back with your other name. If they do not appear online with the other name, they are blocking you.
