I sent my friend a contact request and they tried sending me one but neither of us have received the other request. Is there some way I can fix this??? Its really annoying and I just want to talk to my friend...
Can you both please try right clicking on the contact and see if there is a resend request option that can be chosen, if so, please chose it.
we have both tried that and nothing happened
A new version has just been released September 29th, 2011:
Please download/install this version from here, when prompted click the open or run button: http://www.skype.com/go/getskype-full-56
This new version is 126.96.36.199 to check what version you have, using the main Skype client window please do:
Help -> About Skype
Note: There is also an update release for 5.5 if you want to use it instead 188.8.131.52 released as well, same date.
I have also had this issue, I have resent the request many times, reinstalled skype (the newest version) and got my friend to do the same but it's still not working?
