While he is away, Skype is our lifeline, really. We can have a good chat every night cos it is free, whereas phone calls are limited to under 1 min cos of the cost.

OUr problem is...we can't connect to each other's accounts. I can hear him but he can't hear me...both of us have run test calls (fine) and skped other people (fine). My microphone settigns are correct - it seems as if his comp has blocked me in some way.

Anyone clever know what we can try to resolve it?

Cheers m'dears

I think he needs to reconfigure his skype - there is a problem with it in dubai as the telecoms industry is v regulated there

just google skype and dubai

Right thanks foxy. Have googled and what you say does seem to make sense. I wonder why he could speak to his dad though (fil lives about 3 miles away from here).All quite odd.

Any ideas about how he can reconfigure cos it seems as if you are not allowed to download Skype in the UAE ac to my googling?

Can't help at all Slouchy I'm afraid, but I just wanted to commiserate. How bloody awful for you!

It's been very weird day here today (in an awful sort of way). 2 of the 3 roads into the village were flooded. Lots of houses flooded, a fire-engine drove down the road with a life-boat attached etc. etc.!

Yikes littlefish! How dramatic (and scary). No flooding here (yet)though there is tyakj of the barriers going up soon down in the town.

Thanks for commiserations. I just hope we can sort it. It's a real lifeline for us all, him especially.
