i have installed Skype on my nexus tablet but it will not sign in to my skype account. I get a message saying that I cannot be signed in at this time and to check my mobile settings. I am using mobile wifi with a Huawei device via t-mobile in the uk. Skype on my mac book works fine connecting via the same wifi device so I don't think it is a network problem. I notice that my skype name is underlined in red after I try tabletto log in....I do not know if this means anything. Can anybody suggest what the problem may be. I have downloaded the Modaco camera app.

I had the same problem and fixed it by going to settings then selecting Apps and then in the list of applications selected Skype. In the Skype settings clicked on "Force stop" and the clicked "Clear data". Launched Skype and it connected!

I have exactly the same problem and only on my Nexus 7 2013, android 4.3

Skype has worked fine but not anymore since begin of October. Caused by an update??

Skype on my laptop is OK with the same network.
