How to remove ads

How do I get rid of the ads from the iPhone version of Skype? Ads are offensive to me and I shouldn't have to see them on my phone. I didn't ask for them to be there and it's outrageous that they just show up without my approval. Thanks

Re: How to remove ads

Yes, could somebody please tell us HOW TO BLOCK SKYPE AD's ON IPHONE. 

 

I just upgraded my iPhone Skype App to latest version 4.1.1324 (version dated 15th Oct 12) and now i have a constant stream of annoying ads popping up everytime I open Skype on iphone. Very, very annoying. 

 

I tried deleting the latest App and then synced the old Skype App (version 4.1.1310) back from iTunes, but the ads now continue to display, even though i have re-installed the old version. 

 

Is there a preferences file or something that I need to delete ?

 

Please post a solution !

The software was free, much as I hate it we can't really complain. I would happily buy a premium version with no ads however, are you listening Microsoft?

Agreed. I will be doing the same as well. This kind of business practice is the last straw, and the end of my loyalty to Microsoft.

Re: How to remove ads

Would be interested for a solution for Blackberry devices if anyone has one

 

For a PC:

 

127.0.0.1     rad.msn.com

 

That was fine for MSN Messenger for years

Re: How to remove ads

Just go in settings, then skype, and then close " allow targeted ads " then log out and log in again or restart your phone. It's gone.
