Hello everyone. I own a Nokia E5, Skype worked fine till 2 days ago when suddenly I couldnt log in, the mobile restarts everytime I try to log in. What's the problem?


Thank you. I really need Skype for business and family contact. Hope you guys could help me out with this.

Did you install a Symbian software updated lately? Can you check your mobile's info screen in the settings to check the Symbian version number?

i just bought my e5 and installed skype (downoaded it from ovi store) - no updates have been made but as i said, the phone is brand new and in SW update it says it is up-to-date and no updates are available when i manually check. but yet - i cannot log in to skype via my phone - i am prompted to input my id, then my pass (they are both correct, tried on my PC - all is good) - it is "signing in" for a minute or so and then - just returns the field to type in my ID again... pls assist how to resolve this issue, i would hate to not being able to use sky[e on my phone when it is claimed to be a compatible choice, thanks!


P.S. since a question about Symbian was asked - it says mine is Symbian OS S60 3.2

I have the exact same problem. I hope that Skype can fix it or give some advice.


Brand new Nokia E-5. This is a smartphone. I have no issues using or connecting to any other apps.. and I use eBuddy and other Yahoo Messenger as well.


It's just Skype that's a scumbag on the E-5. I download and install Skype from the Ovi store. It installs properly. I've also tried uninstalling and reinstalling.


I enter my correct username and password.. and it tries to connect for 1 or 2 minutes but then comes back and is unable to connect. I have access to both WiFi and 3G. I CANNOT connect.


Look forward to your reply.
