skype is **bleep**ed up so badly! it keeps saying that i can't connect, i've changed my password, made sure my login in name is correct, and it's still NOT working! i suggest skype sorts this out!
Having the same problem myself. Just created an account of my own today. And like most of you have said, the little circle thing keeps rotating clockwise and it says ! Skype can't connect.
I've tried everything I can think of and i've browsed the web and tried other things people have suggested such as turning off firewall. And it's hopeless.
My father created an account 3 years ago or so. And he never really used it. It was mainly me... but back to the point, I never had a single problem with it!
