Please install latest version of skype and join it to access your contacts list.

What exactly is your issue?

What is the version of Skype program installed on your computer? In Skype go to Help -> About Skype.

Re: what happened to free skype? i cannot even see my contacts

Same here I bought a new Laptop and installed my Skype account. It says I am signed in but all I get is options to purchase. I can't find any free video like I have on my old laptop. Not sure what to do. Does me no good to log in and then be prompted to purchase or create an account. Hmm I already have an account.
