Fw: Re: Skype connectivity

Dear Maemoers,

I forward you Páli Rohár’s reponse to my question which follows his response to my initial question to our mailing list. I have forgotten to send a copy so I do it afterward.

Thank you, Pali,

For the link to Skype open source. It’s very interesting. This way I could maybe figure out what’s going on on my device.
I’ll try to contact Nokia Support. Maybe. Just for fun :-D
I guess they’ll recommend me to reflash :-D
Maybe a reflash is the solution. But nobody knows. Maybe I should prepare myself for a backup, reflash and restoration.
I tried to uninstall everything related to Skype, delete my account entry, reinstall everything back and add my Skype account again. It didn't work. I’m sure I enter the correct password. The IM account manager says that I’m just not signed in and I don’t see the Skype account in the account status list.
Anybody any clues other than reflash?
