Skype not dialing out

When I click on a contact on Skype to call, it will not ring or dial out. I re-downloaded Skype several times, after which the problem stops for a day, but then comes back. My computer also will not shut down, instead it locks up and I have to disconnect it from the power source.

When dialing with my logitech skype phone I can't hear any sound until the other person answers the phone. It only happens with skype to skype calls. It works perfectly calling regular phones.


This is probably because dial tones and ringing tones are part of an archaic system. Your cell phone still makes these noises as a courtesy, and you hear the dial tones/ringing tones when you make regular calls because your phone is communicating with the standard phone system.

How can i instal skype to my psp?


The first step in the process involves configuring the Internet connection, which you should have already done if you've ever taken the PSP online to play games or browse the web. If you’re making a call from a public Wi-Fi hotspot, you might have to fire up the PSP Internet browser to accept the hotspot’s terms of service before getting online.
You’ll need to update your PSP’s firmware to enable Skype functionality if you bought your PSP-2000 close to launch. You can find the update on Sony’s PSP support page and full instructions on how to properly update the device. After installing the system update, you’ll find a new Skype selection under the Network in the XMB menu, nestled between the LocationFree Player and Remote Play.
The Skype program will give you the option of using an existing Skype account, or creating a new account directly from the PSP. Making a Skype account couldn’t be easier. Enter your email address and the desired login and password, and you’re on your way. Once the account is created, you can use either your PSP or a PC to hop over to the Skype site to purchase Skype credits using either PayPal or a credit card. You need Skype credits if you want to call cell phones or regular land lines using your Skype account.
profile.jpg
Profile 1 Profile 2 Profile 3 Profile 4 Profile 5 The Skype menu has five main sections: My Profile, Contacts, History, Dial, and Tools. The Profile section lets you adjust personal information. From here, you can change your status, icon, and mood message. Other profile settings let you set your location, email address, and contact numbers.
contacts.jpg
Contacts 1 Contacts 2 Contacts 3 Contacts 4 Contacts 5 The Contacts page, as the name suggests, displays your contact list. From here you can choose contacts to call, but you'll be limited to audio chats only. You won't have the ability to launch video chats—Skype didn’t recognize the PSP camera attachment we imported from Japan. Voice quality will vary with your internet connection, but even with spotty service the connection is more than usable. Our PC friends did have to update their Skype program to the latest version to stop numerous error screens from popping up during our calls.
history.jpg
History 1 History 2 The History icon keeps track of all incoming and outgoing calls and records how long you were in the chat for. It's also a quick way to go back and redial recent calls.
dial.jpg
Dial 1 Dial 2 Dial 3 The Dial feature lets you call outside phone numbers with the PSP. You will of course have to pay real money for this feature to work. We made a few calls using the service and it functioned as advertised, and voice clarity on both ends was more than passable. We did notice some lag, but nothing severe enough to disrupt the conversation.
tools.jpg
Tools 1 Tools 2 Tools 3 Tools 4 Tools 5 Tools 6 The Tools menu lets you jump to the Skype page to purchase more air time, change default sounds, troubleshoot network related port settings, manage blocked users, and tweak a few other minor settings.
Overall, we found Skype on the PSP to be easy to use and great for voice chats. We don't miss the text chat interface, as the PSP's text input mechanism doesn’t make for fast messaging. We’re not really sure how often you’ll actually use Skype on the PSP, but you’ll be glad to have it if you ever find yourself without a landline and a cell phone, but happen to be near an open Wi-Fi connection. Thats about it! =)

Rate please!

Sincerely
Aleksandar Adzic

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)

Dial-up keeps disconnecting


Go into your control panel and then internet options. Click on the connections tab and then click properties and click on the options tab. Make sure that the "idle time before hanging up" is set to never. Then go back into the dialup connection settings window and down where it shows your username and password click the advanced button. A window will come up, just make sure that the 2 boxes that say "disconnect if idle" and "disconnect when connection is no longer needed" are both unticked

Skypeout on LG shine


Instead of using Skype on your phone you may want to consider downloading Nimbuzz. It works just like Skype - is free to use - and seems to have better results.

It combines all your friends and family from Skype, MSN, Yahoo, ICQ, AIM, Google Talk and more.

To get Nimbuzz simply go to this link and type in your phone number and the program will automatically be sent to your phone.

Nimbuzz, click here: http://tiny.cc/jYC6s

Use call phones through voip321


It took me a while to figure out but here is how I am able to dial out from skype to a hardline to a person not in my skype contact. Simply start to dial the number (not from the talk button!!!) then instead of hitting the talk button to dial, hit the skype button on the bottom left hand side. I also have to dial 001 then the phone number. Hope this works for you too. good luck.
