I had Skype 4.0 on my kindle fire HD and it has worked since it was installed a week ago. It wouldn't go online. When I tapped on my status it wouldn't respond. So I uninstalled and reloaded the skype app which turned out to be the old skype 3.2 which is working fine. Thanks for the advice.
I am having the same problem right now. I was logged in on the Skype page but I couldn't get my contact list, etc. so I couldn't call anyone. I went to the Apps page on my Kindle and clicked on the Skype app which for some reason wasn't activated. After it was activated it was on the cloud, so I went to the cloud and clicked on Skype and then I signed in and it worked. But you have to make sure that you get the app first if you don't already have it. If you don't have the app then you have to download it by going to the skype download page for Kindle Fire. Hope this is understandable and hope it helps for someone with the same problem,
i tried that but it keeps saying "skype has stopped" whenever i try to open skype, powering it of did nothing... any ideas? :/
Not sure what to do now?
