Solved! Go to Solution.
Ah-hah. Problem solved at least for me. Maybe others can use this tip as well. I was trying to Skype with someone internationally who had not updated their Skype to the new version. Once she did that, we were able to talk. So if you can't Skype with someone, ask them to check if their Skype version is current, and upgrade as necessary. Hope this helps others who may be having problems connecting.
