Skype status problem preventing some users from making calls

(Reuters) – Skype, Microsoft Corp's online telephone & video service, said on Monday that some users are unable to make calls because their settings show that they & their contacts are off line, even when they are logged in.

Affected users are unable to alter their status, yet they can use instant messaging & Skype for Web services, Skype said.

"We're working on a fix for this issue & hope to have an update for you soon," Skype said in a blog post. (http://bit.ly/1WcZivA)
