Are you sure they are really online during these times?

 

What happens when you attempt to Skype to Skype call them during these times?

This is NOT a fix or solution.

 

Please right click on the Skype Icon in your system tray and change your status to "Offline" for 5 seconds and then back to "Online".

 

This forces a status update of all your contacts in your contact list as well as a update of your status without the need to logoff/logon.


Also, if possible, call them Skype to Skype and request they do the same, while you are both online.

Re: I can't call someone in my contact list

We have a different problem. A friend of mine and I can contact each other on one of his computers but not the other one. We tried going offline for awhile but it doesn't work. Any ideas?
