VIOP855 no Skype contacts after V66.26/Skype 1.10.847 firmware upgrade
After installing the latest firmware update V66.26/Skype 1.10.847
the phone no longer displays my skype contacts.
I have tried resetting the phone, changing the skype status etc as
stated in the other various discussion but nothing seems to help.
Does any one else have this problem ?
What is the procedure for raising the issue with Philips ?
Brand new Voip855 - no Skype contacts - useless brick
I received my brand new Philips Voip855 "Skype" phone few days ago. I was stupid enough to buy it before doing a proper research and under the impression that it actually supports Skype (which it obviously doesn't).
It came with firmware version V66.26 / 1.10.847 and - guess what - after signing in none of my contacts are displayed. Tried several resets as describe by Felix Pahl but it doesn't "revert to old firmware version" as it was delivered with the new version.
I guess I just bought a useless brick with two handsets and a price tag of approx 150 EUR. It seems a proven solution is a firmware downgrade so why on earth doesn't Philips provide us with the instructions and old firmware????? I'm an IT guy so I wouldn't mind using telnet, SSH, WinSCP, Putty or whatever it takes. Come on Philips - you can do better than this!
