    Hi,

    can someone help me please... for some reason when I try to ring someone from the "People" menu on my phone, it tries to do so with skype, meaning that when i'm not in a wifi area, I can't ring anyone. It used to give me an option to call with Skype Out or with the phone, but that option no longer comes up.

    I assume its some sort of setting that I've managed to change, but can't find it.

    any help would be greatly appreciated

    Cheers

    Welcome to the forums! :)

    Go into applications via the settings menu, then clear the defaults associated with Skype, that might resolve.

    Settings -> Applications -> Manage Applications -> All -> Skype -> Clear Defaults.

    Next time you try to call a number, it should give you the option of what to use to call (Dialer or Skype most likely). Put a tick in the box, then select dialer, hopefully that will sort your problems.

    Don't put a tick in the box if you want to be given the option all the time.

    hey,

    excellent, yeh that worked... thanks a lot for the tip and the welcome :)

    can see the default action tick... must have ticked it by mistake (possibly when drunk)

    cheers again :)

    I've just discovered the delights of Skype, not made a voice call but really handy for text chat.

    I will bear this in mind if things do go wrong
