I live in the United States and my SKYPE does not work either.
I have reloaded the most recent version which does not help,
and in the EBAY tradition there is absolutely no customer support.
i filled out all the forms. paid by cc. registered,got conformation that you took the money. still cant get on skype..it keeps giving me the whole thing again and again..and wants money again and again..sounds to me this is just realy some kind of scam. why dont you have a phone number a person could call to get help to get your product to work/. or to answer to my e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org why cant i get helkp?
