I would like to know the function of Skype. Is it a free service or do I need to pay anything? What can I do if the people I need to call do not have a Skype account? Will it store the conversation history? My Skype is not recognizing the Internet connection. Please help me to resolve the issue.
Basic function of skype and etc..
Skype is a social media application comparable to FaceBook and Twitter. You can type chat with friends on Skype exactly like FaceBook and Twitter, but you can also video chat with people via Skype. It's free to signup for Skype and also to chat, only International calls cost money. If you choose to use this function, you can purchase Skype credit through subscriptions via the Skype.com website. Conversation histories such as call logs and video logs are not stored on Skype. If you choose to use the chat function, conversations are saved but you have the option to delete them. If your Skype is not recognizing the internet connection there's a few things you can do:
1. Make sure you are correctly logged in with your user name and password you signed up with.
2. Check your internet connection to make sure other sites are working
3. If your computer is running slowly this may be a problem. Try clearing your Internet files and see if that helps.
4. If you're using a Firewall, make sure your settings are set to allow Skype
