I'm having the same problem on my MAC with the first phone call. I get the spinning rainbow for 1 minute and 30 seconds and often, a message left for someone doesn't go through.
Same problem here on W7 pro with latest version of skype v.184.108.40.206. Finding lots of complaints but no solutions! All I can do to end the call is kill skype through task manager.
Does Skype support monitor this forum?
Same problem using my iPhone. Wife also has the same problem. It is impossible to hang up on a call. Shutting off the phone doesn't help. The call is still going when you turn the phone back on. Super annoying especially since most of our calls via iPhone are international burning Skype credit.
Very lame support on this issue from Skype seeing how old these comments are.
Same problem here. Occurred after freshly opening Skype after freshly restarting computer. Calling from Win7 to android tablet. Tablet never rang - but I couldn't end the call. Had to restart (again).
OS: Win7 Ultimate SP1 x64
