Thanks skbazza. Have had problems in China with my Dualphone since the start of the year. Disappointingly still not addressed by Skype. I installed firmware v245 (had been on v250), and it started working immediately. Cheers.

My phone is the Linksys CIT200.  It was working properly.  After installing the latest version, it no longers connects to Skype.

I don't know if this is the same or a new problem affecting several different phones. Within the last two weeks a Skype change has resulted in the following issues:


  • Unable to edit profiles.
  • Unable to edit mood messages.
  • Skype ID showing in place of your name.
  • Intermittent disconnectivity / late delivery of messages.
  • Difficulty logging back in after you got disconnected because you tried to edit your profile/mood message.


The issue has been described by Users of the following phones:

  • Huawei U7510
  • Samsung Wave 723
  • Nokia E71


The problem appears to be account-based and only affecting specific accounts when they use Skype mobile. Eg. I have 3 Skype accounts, only my main account is affected. I have two Huawei U7510 phones and the problem occurs on both phones, but only when I use my main Skype account; the other two accounts do not have any of the symptoms on either of the phones.


Reports have come from the following threads: (Message 2)


If this is a new, unrelated problem, could you please confirm if it's likely to be resolved?


Thank you.
