  4. Touch the Sign In button.

    You may be asked to accept the terms of agreement; do so. There may be a tour presented that previews how Skype works. Feel free to skip the tour.

One of the biggest questions you’re asked when you first run the Skype app on your Galaxy Tab is whether you want to synchronize your contacts. To quickly import your contacts, choose the preset option, Sync With Existing Contacts. Touch the Continue button.

The Contacts button on the main Skype screen lists people and phone numbers you’ve connected with on Skype.

The Skype app stays active the entire time your Tab is on. If you desire to sign out of Skype, follow these steps:

  1. Touch the Profile button on the Skype app’s main screen.

  2. Touch the bottom Menu icon button.

  3. Choose Sign Out.

  4. Touch the Yes button.

You’re prompted to sign back in to Skype the next time you run the app.
