    During a Skype call I received a voice call and swapped to the voice call, but I didn't here the other person. I could swap back to Skype and continue the conversation.
    I had to reset the phone for the mike and speaker to work again.
    I called the person and they confirmed that there call to me was answered, but they didn't here me.

    I think it's a bug with Skype and would probably be fixed in future updates. Until then, there is a simple workaround that re-enables sounds (speaker/mic) without having to restart the device: the idea is to remove Skype from the backstack. In order to do that, you would have to switch to Skype (long press on 'Back' button, then select Skype) and once you're in, just keep pressing the 'Back' button as many times as necessary until you exit the app... BAM... Sound is working again as usual.
    Hope it helps ;)
