    How do delete/bar unwanted people who have tried to contact you? There doesn't seem to be a menu to allow it

    There is no way to bar incoming calls - however, of course, you can see the ID of the calling party and choose not to answer the call.

    Thanks Tim. I have had a random and so unwanted person attempt to contact me and they have left a message to which I have not replied, but I can't delete them from the side bar list. I can on my MacBook but no t the iPad. Any suggestions? Thanks

    It doesn't seem as though it's possible to delete messages from Skype on the iPad. There have been a couple of other Members who have noticed this and I've yet to hear of or find a solution or workaround.

    I'm surprised we haven't had a response from Members. Seems to indicate there's no solution....

    Where the conversation is on the side bar, I just slid my finger sideways across the contact and a delete button appeared. Worked on iPad2?
    If you want to delete a contact, do the same as if you were deleting an app. Hold your finger down on the contact - you then should be able to delete?

    I'm sorry this is happening to you. I know how it feels. I actually came on here for that very reason.
    All you have to do is go onto a computer which is connected to the same Skype account then click on the little clock in the top right hand corner and right click on the person you want to block and click block (select report abuse if the person has been abusing you).
    Then go onto the I pad and have it sitting sideways. All the names of the people that have contacted you will be there. Simply tap edit in the right hand corner. Little - signs will appear beside all the names. Tap on that and delete will appear. P.s. if you don't have the I
    Pad sitting sideways it will not work.

    Hope this helped
