Skype won't work on new iPhone 5

I have not been able to use Skype on my new iPhone 5; it freezes up and do not receive or send calls. The OS on the phone is 6.0 and the Skype is 4.1.1310. Can someone please let me know what to do?

Thanks!

Re: Skype won't work on new iPhone 5

Looking to use Skype on my iPhone 5 soon.

 

Encountered the same problem with multiple contacts:

 

Video calls AND Voice calls AND Regular phone calls +1 (Area Code) 7-Digit Number all 

end with either Skype Freezing up (Regular phone call) or Automatic Ending of Video/Voice Call.

 

I think Skype needs to update their firmware to support the new iPhone 5. Any work arounds yet anyone?

Skype continues to freeze on my iphone 5. I also have issues with IM and must sign out and back in to get it to work.  Also the app needs updating and formatting for the new screen size. Would be nice if emoticon shortcuts could be added to the app's text menu.

My problem with Skype on the iphone 5 is more basic..It runs as if it was supposed to be on an iPad..Like it's way too big to fit on the screen. Makes it completely unusable. I don't know how anyone is getting so far as to make calls with it since the display problem is so severe.

Same thing here. It works fine on iPad 3, on iPhone 3GS with iOS 6. The problem is ONLY with iPhone 5.

Uninstallig and reinstalling solves the problem for a few minutes, then it acts up again.

Help, Skype!

I tried reinstalling. It didn't fix the problem for any minutes. It was immediately unusable.
