Skype compatibility issues

Reply Tue 1 May, 2012 07:44 am
I am an old retired guy with no tech savvy at all. I ask these questions because I would like an expert opinion. I use a Dell Studio XPS PC and IE9 and I use Vonage for my phone service. I am thinking of getting Skype for its ability to send both sound and video. Questions: ( 1) Are there compatibility issues with Skype and Win 7? (I use Win 7). ( 2) Will Skype interfere with Vonage or vice-versa? ( 3) Is there a better alternative to Skype for sending video and voice that I have overlooked? (4.) When I upgraded from Vista to Win 7 there was a slight incompatibility with the old graphics card (sometimes when I move the cursor to the edge of the screen it goes black--move it toward the center screen and it goes back to normal. No big deal. Will this small problem interfere with the operation of Skype? Any help appreciated. Thanks. Greg

1) No, I run Skype of Win7, WinXP, the Ipad, and the Ipod. No issues.
2) I can't see why it would but I can't say for certain. I use VOIP (but not Vonage) and don't have a problem.
3) I hear people like the Apple product but Skype is pretty good. I think it's probably more a matter of taste.
4) I doubt it but it's easy enough to install and test.
