IDG News Service - Microsoft has fixed a bug that made it impossible for about a dozen models of Skype-certified phones to log into the popular IM, VoIP and video-conferencing service.

Microsoft said on Thursday it was deploying a solution to the problem, according to a post on Skype's Heartbeat blog, which is devoted to bugs and system problems affecting the service.

"Over the past 24 hours, we have started deploying a fix on our end that resolves the log-in issues. We apologize for the inconvenience," Skype official Jennifer Caukin wrote in the post.

A Skype spokeswoman confirmed via email Friday afternoon that the issue is fully resolved, but declined to comment on what caused the problem and how many users were affected.
