Cannot make phone call due to lack of plus sign in front of country code

With the latest update of the iPhone Skype app, I have two problems.

 

1. If I backspace all the way to clear out a phone number to the plus sign of the country code, I can no longer enter a plus sign to establish a country code.

 

ie.  When Skype is started the phone number begins with :  +1 (for USA, Canada)

After backspacing to clear out number, I can enter a "1", but cannot generate the plus sign.

 

If I put in the phone number with country code Ie. (  1 999 999 999), Skype complains that is not a valide number since the plus sign is not in front of the 1.

 

I have to quit the Skype application and restart it again before it will generate a country code with a plus sign (+1 for USA, Canada).

 

If I want to call another country, I can no longer enter an alternate country code since I cannot generate the plus sign.

 

Problem #2:  After completing a phone call, the application retains the last number dialed and you have to backspace to clear it out before you can type in a new number to dial.  If one backs up to delete the country code, you have the problem listed above.

Hi,

 

It's simple. Like on every other phone please press and hold zero (0) to generate a plus sign or use 00countrycode.

For example 0043 for Austria, 001 for the USA and so on.

 

Regards,

Nope, doesn't work on my iphone since the last update yesterday.

Cannot generate a plus sign... even from the zero key.

Cannot complete a call without the plus sign in front of the country code.

 

I would think that this means the new release has some bugs in it.

Well, pressing and holding zero (0) for a few seconds generates a + (plus) on my iPhone (5) using the newest release (the hotfixed version from today). Are you sure you have downloaded the newest version of Skype?
