I am unable access the Skype phone pad to enter new phone numbers. I am only able to phone and Skype people already listed in my address list.
Please tell me what I must do to be able to add new contacts.

Hi there and welcome

To do this

  1. Sign in to Skype.
  2. Tap People in the top left corner of the screen.
  3. In the People screen, tap the add icon in the top right corner.
  4. Choose Search Skype Directory or Save a Phone Number.

If you have chosen Search Skype Directory:

  1. Look for a contact by entering their Skype Name, full name or email address in the search field.
  2. From the list of matches displayed, select the contact you’d like to add.
  3. Tap Add Contact in the top right corner of their profile.
  4. You are then prompted to send a contact request. Enter some text to introduce yourself if you want, and tap Send.

If you have chosen Save a Phone Number:

  1. Enter the name, select the country code and enter the phone number of the contact you’d like to add.
  2. Tap Done to save the contact.

If you have any problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

Else if you can take a second to rate my service by clicking one of the stars at the top of the screen then submit, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
