Hello, I am experiencing some difficulties on skype using with my iphone. My problem is that whenever I use skype to make phone calls on my iphone, it always quits the skype and goes to the iphone home page when I type more than 6 digits. I can't even type the complete the phone number on skype. Why is that and how do I fix this problem?

I am so looking forward to hear anything soon!

Thank you

windows vista, iPhone OS 3.0.1

    No such problem here; we use Skype on a 2G and a 3GS iPhone using our home wi-fi network. And I have used it on one other wi-fi net while traveling.

    My suggestion is to remove Skype from your phone and re-install it.

    hi, phil

    thank you for your message. I've already tried to re-install the skype, but it doesn't work either. Do u think I should change some settings or is there a problem with my phone?

    There appears to be only one Skype setting option in the Settings menu. BTW -- I have Version 1.0.3 installed on the 3GS.

    Re the phone: Are any other web-based apps acting oddly? For example, do you have any problems when using Safari?

    Oh .. and here at least you cannot use Skype across the phone network; you must have a wi-fi connection.

    hi, phil

    I have skype 1.2 installed on my iphone, if the upgraded version cause the problem how do I degrade it?

    I have also just tried to reset my iphone and it still doesn't work. (does it do any harm to the phone itself? I noticed some settings have changed after I reset my phone. e.g. the language format and the order. I have no idea if the amount of languages have been reduced or not)

    I am actually using a wi-fi connection.

    hi, phil. i found this website where people demonstrate exactly the same problem i have: http://forum.skype.com/index.php?s=02e1a0b9ee34a0a3d67e1b5e84084a28&showtopic=41 7451

    It seems that there is a bug in the newest version skype so I guess I will try to get the old version on my iphone. Don't upgrade the skype on your iphone

    I will let you know if it works...

    Hey, thanks for the tip. Odd thing is that I thought I did have the latest version (I usually install all updates to all programs .. but not on the older, deactivated 2G iPhone, which is used only as a Skype phone now). I'm glad I mentioned what version I do have installed on the 3GS!

    I see that thread includes a link to download the older version. Let us know if it solved the problem for you.

    Skype 1.2 appears to have shown up on Sept 4. I guess I hadn't been to the iTunes store since then because when I went there after this discussion I found the Skype update and 8 others. Needless to say, I opted not to download Skype 1.2 because I had the good fortune to read this thread first.
