When you're on Skype, you may wonder whether one of your contacts is available to chat. Unfortunately, unless she's changed her status to indicate that she's busy or on a call, you won't be able to tell if she's available for a call without actually trying to call her. Once you have initiated your call, you'll know based on what happens to your call whether she's talking to someone else.
