How do I make stop Skype from making numbers on websites dialable

Skype has this feature that makes any number on a website into this link that calls the number via Skype when clicked. Visually, numbers appear in a gray box with the US flag on the left and a green phone icon on the right.

I want to turn that off, but I can't find where to do it. Help! :)

    Nevermind, I just figured it out. For anyone else who needs to know, if you have a Skype icon on your browser's toolbar, you can click it and you'll be able to uncheck the option to turn "number highlighting" on.

Open your browser and look for the blue Skype icon in the upper right-hand corner (icon should be blue with an "S" and "123" with a green phone image.

Click on the Skype icon.

A window will pop up asking you if want to "Turn number highlighting on". Uncheck the box to disable and click "OK".

HOW TO BLOCK CALL ON IPHONE


Need to block a specific phone number from calling or texting your iPhone? It could be telemarketers, spam text messages, or that crank that won't stop calling and messaging. Apple's iOS does not have a built-in feature to block a phone number, but there are other solutions.

1. Your carrier might be able to block individual numbers. AT&T has an optional feature called Smart Limits for Wireless that runs $4.99 per month. One of the many functions is the capability to block up to 30 numbers from calling or texting your iPhone.

Verizon Wireless offers Spam Control for no additional charge. This feature can be found under My Services when logged into your account, and blocks up to 5 numbers from calling or texting.

2. Owners of jailbroken iPhones can install apps from the Cydia Store that will block phone numbers.iBlacklist is fully compatible with all iOS devices, iOS 5 and older firmware. For a one-time cost of $12, iBlacklist adds a plethora of useful features to your iPhone including the ability to block calls and texts from individual numbers.

MobileLog is currently in development and will be offered for sale to jailbroken iPhone owners soon. The app will also provide many enhancements to the stock calling app as well as number blocking.

3. Make sure you've registered your iPhone number with the National Do Not Call Registry. This will not stop texts, but it will require most telemarketers to stop calling your line within 31 days. Complaints can also be filed using the same website, and phone number registrations with the service never expire.

4. Assign a silent ringtone to the numbers you don't want to answer. This stops calls from bothering you, but texts will still sound an alert.

5. Another calling only solution are services such as TrapCall, which has plans starting at $4.95 per month. No iPhone app installation is required, and once you're signed up TrapCall will unmask blocked caller IDs and blacklist unwanted callers. More expensive plans can be purchased that offer more in-depth functions.

Anytime I try to talk to somebody , my skype stop working. please help me


First thing first, I would reinstall it, or make sure that you have an updated version. It sounds so miniscule, but it usually does the trick. If that does not work, I would contact Skype technical support.

Before doing so here is the standard list FYI:
To make a video call, you and the person you are calling will need:
Here is the connections trouble shoot website:

Im anew account from skype


Installation
Download Skype from the Skype website (see Resources), choosing to "Install" and "Run" the program when prompted by your PC.
Double-click the Skype icon on your desktop to open Skype. A small window, titled "Welcome to Skype" will pop up, prompting you to type in your Skype name and password--if you don't have one, click on the option under the "Skype Name" input form titled "Don't Have a Skype Name?"
Input your details into the "Create a New Skype Account" window that pops up. It asks for your full name and email, and you will have to create a Skype name and password. Click "I Agree-Create Account" once you are done and have perused the Skype license agreement. The Skype interface will come up, from where you can make calls and video chat--you will be logged in under the Skype name you just created.

Using Skype
Find contacts--friends or family also on Skype--by clicking on the upper left-hand menu item in the Skype interface named "Contacts." Click on "New Contact" and input your friend's full name, email or Skype name and click "Find." Alternatively, click "Import Contacts" from the "Contacts" menu to import contacts from a number of various programs, such as existing Facebook, Hotmail and AOL accounts.
Contact another Skype user on their computer by clicking on his name in the "Contacts" panel on the left side of the Skype interface. This will bring up a number of options in the right-hand panel of the Skype interface. Click on the green button that says "Call" to make a voice call to this person's Skype account. Click on the green button that says "Video Call" to make a video call to this person's Skype account. Type an instant message into the text box at the bottom of the Skype interface to start an IM conversation with this person.
Call a land line or cell phone from Skype by clicking on the "Call Phones" button on the bottom left of the left-side panel of the Skype interface. This will bring up a large number pad in the right-hand panel of the interface, but you need Skype Credit in order to call.
Click on the "Buy Skype Credit" in the small box on the far right of the right-hand Skype interface panel. This takes you to a secure page. Follow the prompts to enter your billing address and credit card number, and your Skype Credit will be loaded. Go back to the "Call Phones" page and enter the phone number you wish to call, then press the large green button that says "Call."

How can i talk free using internet


You will want to use a VoIP (Voice Over IP) services or application.
  • Skype is the most mainstream (free) version. It allows instant messaging, video chat, as well as the ability to do voice only (i.e. making a "call"). If you want to make calls to an actual phone, you will have to purchase some credit but it is reasonably cheap. ( www.skype.com/)
  • Google's Gmail has integrated video chat
  • Google Talk also supports VoIP
