Issues with Skype on BlackBerry z10

[ Edited ]

Hi there,

 

I've got a frustrating issue on my z10 with Skype. When I go to call a land line and I have finished dialing and I am waiting for the person to pick-up I hear two ringing tones. One is a "skype tone" which sounds like a British ringing sound (ring, ring) and the other is the actual ringing sound that I am expecting to hear for the call I am making (single ring as you get in North America).

 

Sometimes I can still hear the Skype double ring in the background even after the person on the other end has picked-up!

 

I have uninstalled and reinstalled and I still get this issue. 

 

Help!

Re: Issues with Skype on BlackBerry z10

Hi, Janarnald, and welcome to the Community,

 

Thank you for your report.   At first read, this sounds like a network problem.  What wireless carrier are you using, and at what speed (4G LTE, 3G ...)?  Are you experiencing problems connecting to all contacts, or just this one?  I am not sure if this is a Skype-to-Skype call, or Skype Out call (using credit or a subscription to cover the cost of the outbound call)?

 

Questions, questions!  Thanks for your patience, and looking forward to your return post.

 

Best regards,

Elaine

Good catch! :happy:  Thank you for pointing out that in my instruction on how to contact Skype Customer Service that the blue "Send" button has been replaced with a green Next button, and that to file an e-mail request, we click "Send."

Re: Issues with Skype on BlackBerry z10

I still have not received a response to my query from June. Any thoughts? I sure would like to have a usable Skype app on my z10.
