    Are you an existing Skype user or a new one?

    Set up a new account on the internet(safari) and the log in on the skype app.
    Isn't that hard, is it?

    Thank you
    If it wasn't that hard I would have sorted it myself and not asked for help
    Trust this is not in the spirit of helping those that ask!

    I really don't think that there was any need for that last sentence.

    Agreed, we have members of many abilities (generally much more expert than I am) and we all get better by helping each other.

    Thank you for expressions of support following sarcastic reply from Hpulmer
    I take great comfort from taking advice from those that give freely of their time to help those that request assistance
    Cheers

    Are you still stuck? If you've loaded the Skype app and have signed up for a logon (or have used the link I posted to remember your previous account), you're ready to Skype.

    On the iPad Skype app, go to Contacts and start searching for your friends' and family's Skype logons if you don't know them. (Hit the plus sign on the upper right to search.) Then you request that they Skype with you. If they're not currently on Skype, you have to wait till they reply.

    Better if you can remember your old account info, because presumably you have existing contacts on it already. Good luck.

    Hi, this is my first post. Ihave a problem with Skype. My problem is how to connect with my fb friends just like what I have in my pc.
    Please. Help my Skype version is 3.7.61 . May be upgrading to to 3.8 would help but I don't know where to download. I already read the whole trict but still very clumsy using my new iPad.

    Yup. A quick Internet account setup is all that's needed. The iPad skype app is then very easy and straight forward. :)

    I have skype working on my ipad2 which works great when I call out on it. When someone calls me I can't hear the sound indicating an incoming call like i do on my desktop. Have I done something wrong in the setup or can't it be done? Appreciate any help.
