    Don't Get Latest Version Of Skype 2.8.0.851

    I think this is common... happened to me and others... It's due to the latest version of Skype for mac...

    Here's a page with previous versions. I'm about to try 2.8.0.659. I'll check it out and let you know.

    EDIT: Well, that didn't work - gonna try 2.7....

    EDIT: OK! 2.7 works! I was able to sign in. Fwew!

    It's NOT your Mac!

    EDIT: Fully delete Skype before getting 2.7. And, go into library - application support -- Then delete the Skype folder. Then go ahead and in stall 2.7.

    Skype

    Well i'm using Skype version 2.8.0.851 and have no problems with it.
    I can contact friends who use windows as well as Macs.
    Admittedly I'm only using Skype's software which is free.
    Could it be that you need a good broadband connection?
