Skype not connecting

My internet is working fine.  Skype, however, will not connect to the internet.  The small icon just says (connecting) next to it.  I use windows vista.  I'm currently overseas and need skype to communicate.  I really need some help.  Anyone?

Re: Skype not connecting

Make sure you are running the latest Skype for Windows from www.skype.com/go/download

Keep your Skype up to date

Re: Skype not connecting

HOW DO I CONTACT SKYPE TO DISPUTE THE $18.00 CHARGE FOR A SKYPE PHONE NUMBER.  I JUST SPENT 4 HOURS FINDING TEXTING WITH AND THEN TEXTING WITH TECH SUPPORT TO HELP ME ACTIVATE THE PHONE NUMBER ON MY IPAD.  TWO OUT OF 10 CALLS WENT THROUGH.   THIS SERVICE DOES NOT WORK AS ADVERTISED AND I WANT MY MONEY BACK.

 

I SRONGLY RECOMMEND AGAINST A SKYPE PHONE NUMBER.  AS MUCH AS I WANT ONE.

 

IT JUST DOESN'T WORK AND THE COMPANY IS NOT CUSTOMER FRIENDLY.

 

SOMEONE PLEASE GIVE ME A CONTACT NUMBER (OR EVEN AN EMAIL ADDRESS) I CAN USE TO ASK FOR MY MONEY BACK.
