Support Skype won't sign in!

I can't get Skype Mobile on Verizon to sign in (Version I keep getting, "Couldn't connect to Skype." Is any one else having this issue?

Skype has been having global issues the past few days. They may not be fully recovered from it. I don't know the details of the issues though, so if you're able to login from a PC, I won't speculate was to why that may be.

Yosef, I have the exact same problem after I upgraded Skype to version 1.5 on a Droid 2 Global (Verizon network)

Did you find any solutions to the problem ? (other than downgrading to 1.0)

Verizon says they cannot help

I asked Skype about it and they sent me instructions that said:

Make sure you have the latest firmware on your phone. See Verizon.

Uninstall Skype (Settings>Applications>Manage Applications>find Skype Mobile and uninstall.

Download the latest Skype Mobile from the Verizon website page Skype Mobile Phone | Skype Cell Phone | Skype Calling

(Umm it looks like the Forum insists on parsing that so here's what the URL is, slightly munged) http : // phones . verizonwireless . com / skypemobile

I have NOT done any of this yet and I'm debating bothering with it.
