I just got an iPad 3 and installed Skype from the App Store. The video icon & SMS icon are grayed out. I was unable to find an answer searching this site. Suggestions?
I live in Japan and currently use skype with my home computer and Android(Dell Streak)mobile/computer.
I'm thinking of buying an ipad....installing skype and using this as my primary phone/computer......therefore cancelling the phone portion of my contract...
Skype can be used to call non-skype participating landlines and mobile phones.Many of my friends currently have skype on their ipods and/or android phones.
Besides the bulky computer/ telephone and lack of emergency calliing(perhaps).Can you forsee disadvantages to this idea?
Thanks for your thoughts,
I cancelled my phone contract to use Skype on the ipad as my main phone number with an online number. It was a joke.Skype for ipad is a joke and unreliable. The video and call quality was very poor. Bluetooth only worked for the first call and then didnt work again.
I had to go out an buy a proper phone.
Dont rely on Skype for ipad its useless
this version of Skype for Ipad is extremely slow, and the inability to use more than one phone number per contact (like the iphone does) need to be addressed immediately
