Are you seeing your Contacts list in Skype?  If so, and if your contact's profile pictures are showing as blanks icons with a question mark, that should correct itself over time as each of your contacts comes online while you're online.

How do I set up my contacts list again?  I had to change my password and when I did I lost all my list...can I get it back? 

 

Also, the instant notice if I have a call while on-line...

 

thanks!

THIS WHOLE SKYPE CRAP IS WAY TOO COMPLICATED. I SIGNED ON TO SKYPE TWO YEARS AGO AND IT WAS GREAT FROM THE VERY START; VERY SIMPLE, ETC.

NOW I DON'T SEE MY CONTACTS AND ITS A PAIN IN THE ASS TO MANEUVER AROUND THIS SITE. I QUIT.

Yes, I agree. The primitive Skype was simpler, easy and clear to use, therefore it was BETTER . The new one leaves one almost without OPTIONS. Even if you want TO PAY, it is difficult for those of us that have been ripped off by puting our number of credit card on line. THEY SHOULD OFFER AN OPTION TO PAY WITHOUT CREDIT CARD for instead: let you print a bill, and go and pay somewhere PHYSICALLY.   Agree: New Skype too complicated.
