How is your phone provider. Give them a call to check they are not blocking skype.


What type of internet connection are you using? Check with your system administrator to see if its blocked?

This is my problem, I just purchased a "Pendo" tablet. From the android app store from a link on the device I downloaded skype which all went as normal. I have the login screen, I type in my name and password and after an attempt to login I get the error message "Skype has stopped working". Would you like to sign in again or exit Skype. This happens every time. I have uninstalled and reinstalled a couple of times but each time its the same
