    Hi,
    Everytime I receive a message via Skype, it's also sent as an SMS to my Lumia 820. How can I prevent this from happening? I already read the message from my laptop so I don't need it separately to my phone.

    Thanks in advance,
    Migi

    In Skype on your phone, on the top right corner I think, there is a little icon with your Skype picture, click on it... That will take you to a screen where you can see your account. In there click the ellipsis, go to settings, and I think there is a setting there to disable getting SMS.

    This is all from memory since I currently don't have Skype on my phone so I may be wrong or thinking of something else.

    No, it wasn't from there....I had them turned off already, BUT I had Skype Windows 8 App on my laptop on and that caused the problems. So now it's shut down and only desktop version is running - no more problems.

    Damn it wasn't that. Messages still keeps coming. Could it be that the other person who sends messages is using Messenger. Very annoying feature anyway.
