Lost contacts on my Philips VOIP Skype phone

I have had this phone for about 6 months and have absolutely loved it.  All of the sudden, all of my skypeout contacts are missing from my phone (but still showing up in skype on my computer).  Any suggestions?

    I have the same problem. I have used the philips voip841 for 2months without any problem and now I have lost all skype contacts in the phone. I have tried 'resetting' the handset without success. Phone still auto-logs into skype fine but doesn't show my contacts (though 'skype' still has my contacts as they appear when i log in from laptop). Also, I can 'add' my contacts again from the phone and these newly added contacts keep appearing in the list, but it still doesn't show me when they're online. And I can still receive calls from skype contacts.

    I have the same issue. After having to reset the VOIP 841 phone, all my contacts disappeared. They are still on my account when I log into Skype via my computer and when I wife logs into the VOIP 841 phone, her contacts are present.

I had this same problem... If you use Microsoft Outlook for emails, then this might be the solution: Open Skype and click on View, and untick the 'Show Outlook Contacts'. Hopefully this will cull the list of contacts and will enable the Philips voip phone to view contacts again... Perhaps it's because the Outlook contacts are vCards - something which the Philips phone can't recognise?

Voip 080 wont work with my updated skype


close the voip philips application from the task bar. Then do the same for skype. Now Start Skype again followed by the voip software. If that doesnt work uninstall both software and reinstall installing the voip 080 first, then upgrading the skype. You may still receive a warning at first but it will work

Contacts list


I had a WIndows vista incompatible driver so downloaded a new driver from Philips.com and followed the instructions and whoopdiwoo it all seems to work EXCEPT that people I am calling can't hear me so I am not 100% sure what microphone it should be set to. The download said default it to the systems mic and speakers but when I made a call it was defaulting to voip phone. So all in all solved one and all my contacts coming up and still one to solve! Also haven't a clue yet how to use it as a land line phone as well.

Philips 321 voip problem


If you are using this phone with skype and you can't call out and you can't hear when someone calls out, the skype isn't configured properly to use the philips 321.

Philips VOIP 841 - Change Skype Account


Your skypin number should be associated with an account on skype. So all you have to do is to login using the associated account when you turn on your phone, do this by using the phone's controls to enter in your skype account and password.

Yes, If your phone supports SIP then you should be able to program any service provider. On the other hand if this is a Skype only phone then you will not be able to use it with any other service besides Skype because they use a non-standard protocol.
I tried looking up your phone and the closest I came was :
http://www.amazon.com/Philips-VOIP8411B-37-Phone-System/dp/tech-data/B000ND75FW/ref=de_a_smtd

This says in the Tech Specs that it is voip client and softphone compatible (whatever that means). It doesnt say it is SIP compatible. So look up the user manual and if it says that your phone is SIP compatible then you should be able to program any VOIP service provider (90% of them are SIP based) but if all the manual mentions is Skype and nothing else, then you might be out of luck.
Hope that helps!

Sounds like you simply have to sign out from skype from the phone, change your auto-login password to the new one, then try logging back in again.
