  1. Hi all, I had an interesting message pop up last night on all our Samsung TVs to say Skype is being discontinued and basically it will be uninstalled by June 2016. All of them are fairly new in the house and the main one - a 55" curved was bought specifically with Skype in mind as we do use it a fair bit. Where do we stand on this? Essentially, the TV is sold as "Skype ready" I guess- clearly it is not. And if it was sold on that basis that you could skype and no longer can, surely it is no longer fit for purpose? There is a lot of noise about this on various forums but I could not find any legal point of views Thanks in advance
  2. Just rejoined Skype, needless to say since Microsoft took over it is now plagued with adverts I am using an internet dongle from Three so my question is? If i leave skype running in the background, will it eat all my allocated data on my price plan?? Thanks
  3. Are virgin media blocking the above ? For some reason when the above apps are being used wirelessly they don't work. When wireless is switched off they work ?
  4. [problem] emails purporting to come from Skype Communications tell recipients that they’ve received a new message from the Skype voicemail service [27 November 2013] The fake emails have the subject line “You received a new message from Skype voicemail service” and read: This is an automated email, please don’t reply. Attachment contains malware The purpose of this email is to get you to download the attached “voicemail” file, and according to email security company MXLab it contains a Zeus Trojan. The fraudsters have also tried to make the emails look genuine by adding real links back to the Skype website. If you receive one of these emails, delete it, don’t download the attachment http://www.actionfraud.police.uk/alert-fake-voicemail-emails-from-skype-contain-virus-nov13

  6. Just received an e-mail that looked legit (well, apart from the html coding that was all over the place but that can happen to any e-mail) saying that payment to Skype for a 3 mth subscription via Paypal had been made for £39 etc. It also said if you hadn't authorised the payment to open a dispute with Paypal here (click link)... Because I wasn't born yesterday, I actually went to my PP account *not* clicking on that link but separately, and lo and behold, there is no payment made to Skype at all. So I went back to the e-mail and scrutinised it, and then realised they'd done it the simplest way of all, so easy to miss: the e-mail address used is skypes.com. I swear I had looked at it about 10 times before I spotted it, and only because I was looking hard! So there you go, if you get a strange e-mail apparently from Skype about a transaction you don't remember carrying out, be very careful where you click next. Actually, that applies to all e-mails, not just Skype.
