    Try logging into your Google account and open play store in your phone press menu key and search for skype application it will show as installed click on that application you will get two options as open and uninstall try this method for uninstalling the application if that doesn't help try getting root permission for your phone and install an application as root explorer in that application open it and navigate to system->apps-> scroll down and find skype application it will have the symbol with a different name and long press on that application and select the permissions option and then select the first two columns which gives you read and write permissions then reboot your phone and so now try uninstalling the application if that still doesn't work. Do the same as told before opening root explorer and navigating to the application delete the application using the root explorer and then reboot the phone it will be gone.
    Hope my answer is useful.

    1) If Skype is pre installed in your Device then it wont be possible to remove the Skype.
    2) If you badly wanted to remove the App, then you have to root the Device in order to get the thing Done.
    3) Rooting needs to be done carefully else you will end up bricking the device.
    4) Instead of that you can hide the Skype App using other Apps.

    I think it is not pre installed in your phone.If you are doing the procedure & unable to remove then go to Task manager.
    Open that find Skype.Now,near by will find Uninstall.Click that it will ask for option.
    Click that will ask you for Option like OK & Cancel.But click on OK & your app will be removed.

    Then you must try to make default settings in your mobile and if you can't do this, then you have an option of factory reset settings which will format all your apps and restore all your previous settings.
    The best option is to call to the customer care of samsung and discuss about the problem.

    Hello friend,
    There may be some software regarding issue to must have to rset your phone and then try again.

    Remember, by performing a reset, all your data- settings, messages, apps, etc would be deleted.
    So backup up anything important.

    Follow these steps:
    - Go to 'Settings'.
    - Privacy.
    - 'Factory Data Reset'.
    - Fill in your id and password and confirm.
    - You can choose whether to delete SD card data or not.

    After the process is complete, your device would return to its out-of-the-box state or to its factory settings.

    Regards!
