Skype doesn't show me online to my friends


Try updating skype on both machines and make sure there is enough band width to work. If you use a Mac, why not use Facetime.

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

Yes, I have experienced the same thing for the last 30 min, I think it may be due to traffic as I uninstalled skype etc , restarted pc and nothing even though my internet connection is good. Give it another try in couple of hours.. Skype has more than 20 million users at one go sometimes and it seems to be growing day by day.

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.

I can't see my friend on skype. They can see me and themself. I can only see myself in the left corner.


check the firewall settings on your computer & check if skype is on the allowed list.sometimes firewall can cause this issues.another walk around is this close Skype,
go to ""C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Skype"
delete the file "shared.xml".
Then restart skype and contacts should appear normally.

New account, no friends appear online


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
