I have had Skype on my Galaxy S3 for quite sometime now, been working alright. Up until recently, I decided to uninstall skype and try reinstalling it because it was crashing on me. When I tried to reinstall I got the error: Unknown error code during application install "-24". I ask that someone please give me a solution rather than "oh yeah I have this problem too hurr hurr hurr" which seems like most of the posts on here.
So i figured it out. Sadly to say a factory reset will have to be done. I did this and installed skype and it installed completely. I hate that i had to do that, but that was the only way to get it to work.
