    Hi...............,

    If --->
    * net connection is slow you face such problem.
    * Software update is not done from many days then update it.
    * You need to sign in and then add contacts.
    * Calls may even end if opponent net is slow.
    * So ask opponent to use fast net .

    -- Do not perform any other activity while making call.
    -- Do not download the software from unknown site.

    Thanks

    hello sir,

    i think that there is not proper availability of the internet speed on your device.that's why you are facing the current problem on your device.
    So my suggestion to you is that you should have to consult with the server provider.

    Or there may be the some temporary bug.
    So you should have to follow as:::>>>>

    go to the menu.

    Tap on the settings.

    After that tap on the apps.

    Then tap on the manage apps.

    After that tap on the all apps to select them.

    Then tap on the options.

    Then click on the clear cache.

    That's all.

    Thank you.

    It's the sound that drops when calls are not being made. Then I have to Quit the application, and reinstall it. After that it works for a few hours, then drops the sound again. I have tried going to Apple.com and redownloading again and again. I don't see anyone else with that problem.

    Hello dear.......

    You had specified that this happens after software update.
    So, there may be some bugs created this problem or any incompatibility of new software definitions.
    So, uninstall the present version.
    Check for the latest version, download it and install it.
    Now reboot your MAC then login to your skype account.

    Hope your problem may resolved......

    Hello friend,


    I have the solution for your problem just do as i say.............

    1.When you have updated your software the some files of the Skype may be deleted accidentally.

    2.So you first try to update the present Skype software.

    3.If you cannot able to do that uninstall this software first.

    4.Then you go to the website 'http://www.filehippo.com'.

    5.From there you download the Skypa and later you install it in your mac.

    All the best...............

    hi, sir i think you have this proble in your device due to installation of the large size apps and when we install these apps then they takes the ram memory of the device and hence the device do not working properly and that`s why w you have this problem. if you want to solve this problem then you have to delete the installation of thee application and for it you can restore your device because by restoring the device all the apps get automatically uninstall. thanks.
