Adding friends on skype may seem difficult or confusing at first, but you can do it in a few steps. Of course, sign in. Look at the left hand side where there is an icon that looks like a silhouette of a person then a plus sign. Click on that then type the name of the person you are wanting to add. You can search for them by their email, their skype name or their real name. If there's one match in the search results, and it's the person you're looking for, click their name or profile picture.If more than one name matches your search, find the person you're looking for and click their name or profile picture.If you cannot find your friend in the search results but you're sure they're on Skype, just ask them what their Skype Name is and add them to your contacts.In the top right corner of the window, click Add to Contacts and enter some text to introduce yourself. This is important to let your friend know that you're adding them as your Skype contact. When you're done, just click Send. The new person is now added to your contacts but will be displayed with a question mark until they add you back.

You will have to install Skype on your phone or PC/Laptop, add him as a friend (find out his Skype ID) and then call and chat away!

I want to use Skype IM but all I can get is a stupid ad for selling me phone time.


Hello,

if you are probably trying to cal your friends out of skype, so you need skype credit to call outside. Just in case you add your friends(who are on skype too) to skype, you can call for free.

You can add contact following these steps:

In the menu bar, click Contacts > Add a Contact.

Enter the Email, Phone number, Full name or skype name(if you already know your friend's name on skype) of the person you want to add. If the Skype account of the person you wish to add is displayed, click Add below the contact.

If more than one Skype account matches your search:
Click View for a list of matching Skype accounts and click Add contact next to the one you wish to add. Before the contact can be added, you must send a contact request to that person. Enter some text to introduce yourself and click Send request. The contact will be added to your contact list, but will appear offline until they accept your request. Once the person agrees to your request, they will be added to your Contact list. Then you can make free calls and free video calls to that person.


Hope this helps,
Lucas

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.
friends_on_skype.png

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.

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 :)

How do i use skype?


Skype is a great way to communicate.. I prefer it over other programs as it better suits a traveling person.
  1. Open a Skype Account. Go to www.skype.com
  2. (Computer->Computer) Search for your friends online. Add them by (Contacts / Add Contact). This is a free service
  3. (Computer->Phone). This is called SKYPE OUT. You can dial any fixed or mobile phone anywhere around the world if you add credit in your SKYPEOUT account (go to www.skypeout.com). Paypal and Credit card are supported. You can either add 10 EURO or 25 EURO at one time. Calls are cheap (depending on country), and are relatively comparable to IP cards. Remember to dial the country prefix!
  4. (Phone->Computer). This is called SKYPE IN. This is a VERY convenient service. SKYPE IN (www.skypein.com)allows you to reserve a phone number in a country of choice. The cost is 30 EURO a year, or 10 EURO for 3 months. This allows you to hand out a local number to friends / work collegues in a different country (so they are charged only a local call), and when they call you, your SKYPE on your computer will ring (no matter where you are in the world!). This is handy if you want to have a number on your business card for a country that you do not reside. The only cost to you is the yearly rental of the number, and the caller is charged a normal phone call charge.
Things You'll Need:
  • You'll need a Headset with a Microphone. The best to use is a set with the TWO plugs (microphone and speaker). Avoid the USB type headset (these can be painful when trying to remove the device). Th
  • You'll also need a Credit Card if you want to use SKYPEIN or SKYPEOUT
  • A computer! Preferably a newer computer with a better-than-modem connection.
  • Optional - WebCam. Version 2.0 and later supports video. Although not particularly flash - its still pretty cool (remember you'll need a fast internet connection for video)
