    SKYPE - testing Phone to computer and reverse


    SKYPE needs an ID (usually a Microsoft ID). Now is there anyway I can test a connection from My computer to phone or the reverse. AS I have only a single Microsoft ID I can't test this -- I don't want to wait until I'm over at someone else's house to set this up. Is there a way you can test a SKYPE video call between your own laptop and your mobile - I just want to see if the video works both ways.

    Cheers

    Hi there

    No

    all I want to do is call a SKYPE ID and see what the call looks like -- also if I RECEIVE a call what it looks like -- it should be possible to TEST these things surely -- I've got a phone and a computer. I don't want to create a second Ms ID with a "dummy" email address (or GMAIL or whatever).

    Cheers

    I think you will have to pay Skype to make Skype to phone calls instead of Skype to Skype internet calls.

This is a weird one. I installed Skype on my laptop in Win8 and shortly thereafter strange stuff began to happen, for instance my cd tray popped out. At the time I had no idea what was going on and shrugged it off. But then I lost the touchscreen and that bugged me. I have dual boot with Win7 and...
