    I have a 32GB and Skype connects for me. Like all computing devices that act oddly, you could try rebooting the TP. i know this is basic, but are you sure you are entering the right user ID and password?

    open the accounts app, add your skype account. Open the phone app, call a skype contact in your contact list.

    Stupid question...how do I call someone using their Skype name (not a phone number)? Is there a way to enter their skype name in the address book?

    You can do it from either the contact app, or the phone app. You can also do it through the messaging app itself if you're signed in.

    If you're in the contact card you can select voice, text, or video chat under the Skype section. In the phone app you type their name in (if their sn is linked to a contact), if not you'll have to look for their sn instead. From there you can call them however you want.

    As crazy as it sounds, delete your Skype account and then reinstall it! It worked for me, after I was having similar problems. Good luck!

    Once you login into your skype account, the people you currently have defined on your PC will sync with your contact list on your Touchpad.

    Make sure your skype is working from you PC as a test before trying from your Touchpad.

    Not sure where you are getting version 5.5 since skype is built into the phone app; but, a quick search on the skype.com home page provides the following:

    skype is built -into- the TouchPad. You go to Settings->Accounts, Add Account, select Skype.

    If it doesn't login the first time, give it about 5 minutes to make a connection. If that doesn't do it, remove the account, and try again. Eventually, it'll get logged in, and stick.

    I am using TP 32GB w/WiFi and it works great. I just ran a test to assure it is presently working.

    As a top contributor to the HP Consumer Support Forums, HP provides me access to the Tochpad at no charge so I may better respond to the questions raised on the Forum.
