Default Using Skype

Dear Forumers,

As i know Skype shares credit card information with paypal is it ok to use for chatting purpose only? Can i install skype to use as a messenger w/o posting my credit card details etc.

Will it affect my ebay account? Also when this current account gets suspended, will it link to my new account throught skype?

i am worrying about the same thing. I don't think skype log ip address and share the information with eBay right now. (otherwise one of my selling accouts should have already been linked) But I will change to Gizmo5 and say byebye to skype.

Sajin,

I would think Magic jack is safe. EBay owns Skype, likewise they share information. Also, I believe Lyda is correct. EBay way overpaid for Skype and is trying to rid themselves of an under performing asset.

Default Skype

I use skype myself, just don`t call ebay with a skype account that is linked to a suspended account. Ebay wants to sell Skype so will not be long before we can start using that again. I use skype everyday to call to family in Europe and all my accounts are still up, so for no problems and i`m doing this for a couple months now.

Default "Skype Founders Might Buy Back Firm From eBay"

"Skype's two founders have joined a growing list of suitors possibly interested in buying the service from eBay (NSDQ: EBAY). The New York Times (NYSE: NYT) reports that Niklas Zennstrom and Janus Friis, who sold Skype to eBay four years ago for $2.6 billion, are trying to raise money to repurchase the firm. As the paper notes, new eBay CEO John Donahue has seemed to imply that he is willing to sell the calling service, referring to it as a "great stand-alone business."

eBay has an unsettled relationship with Zennstrom and Friis. The company sued them and a company they control, Joltid, last week after they tried to terminate a license for the peer-to-peer infrastructure behind Skype. The New York Times suggests that the lawsuit could actually give Zennstrom and Friis an edge in any discussions, since it could deter other interested parties from making a bid."
