    Off Topic: I cannot or don't know how to copy & paste text from the skype app in my Lumia 521. I want to copy an address sent to me and paste it in Maps but it won't allow me to select/highlight the address. Did anyone got it to work on their phones? TIA.

    hi, from Spain, its a bad joke than, in other ios and Android versions of skypes app, you can send images, and in WP8 version you cant, i cant understand some things like this in Windows Phone 8.

    Any rumours about that?

    P.D. sorry about my bad english

    Please Microsoft, make Skype app usable! Even with the latest update, the app is slow as hell besides being a battery drain aplication. My Lumia heats on the upper back few seconds after starting Skype without any hard activity (not in a vdeo call nor sending a text0. It seems that it requires a lot o processing just to display the app!!
    So, again, please Microsoft, fix your OWN Messenger app!! Another annoying thing is that if we have the Skype app installed and enable notifications, everytime someone sends you a message, both Skype and people hub will show up the notification (when notifications are working...)

    I second the motion that MS should fix their own blasted app. It's buggy and behind the competition. Very bad display yet again from Microsoft.

    There was an update last week for Skype. Try that first because it seems to cure the long delay in receiving messages. On battery, I hasn't notice any impact on battery life with skype running in background.

    How do I get Skype to use my phone saved contact number?

    Or when I want to make a call to someone in my phone contact using Skype instead of my mobile carrier?

    Open up Skype. Go to "people". Right below that you'll see "Skype". Touch that will give you a option for all. Then all you contacts will show in Skype.

    I really hope MS puts more effort into Skype for WP as it seems they have for other platforms.

    Question on video calls or I guess calls in general. Do you have to have Skype running in background to receive a call? Someone called me but I never received the call, that was two days ago. Then today, I opened Skype and I saw the Missed call.

    No, you're not suppose to need Skype running, but its buggy and doesn't always work properly. I've missed calls also due to it not working properly.

    Thanks. I can only hope MS improves it soon and any future updates come to WP before Android and Apple

    When you go to skype settings to enable or disable notifications, what does the enable/disable messenger messages do?

    I have a problem with Skype and was wondering if anyone else was getting the same problem? I will get a notification for a new Skype message, but if I don't click the notification and just open the Skype app to read the message, I never get the message. From the notification I can read the first part of the message, but when I open the Skype app the message that I saw never displays. The only thing I can think of as to why this would happen is if the Skype team just ported over the app from iOS and since iOS has a notification center, you can't really miss the notification like you can on WP. Therefore, you could just open the message from the notification center.

    wow, i see a lot of negative comments regarding this ..

    i had the fortune of installing and using Skype for the first time yesterday, the official one, and i had a lengthy group convo with 6 or so people for 2 and a half hours, half the people couldn't believe i was on a phone because the voice quality was extremely good and issue free (I'm on a lumia 520, and was using a 2MBPS wifi connection spread across my home, while walking around the rooms).

    I was incredibly impressed with the performance of the Skype app. The only downside (for me) was that the Lumia 520 doesn't have a front cam, so I couldn't do adequate video chat.

    ^^ Wow, Adnan, count yourself very lucky. Before I found this Skype thread, I had posted this thread because Skype has always been awful on my 928. At best, using Skype on my phone is frustrating and unreliable; at worst, it's useless. Seems like this would be a total embarrassment for Microsoft to the point that maybe it would become a priority to get their own Skype service and app to work correctly on their own mobile platform, but obviously that's not the case yet. Unbelievable, yes, but not especially surprising since it seems on par with the kind of screwy stuff MS consistently does.

    Skype does not work for me over cellular data at all. Contact list takes forever to load, and Messages also take a while to load/receive when having a chat. Calls and videocalls are impossible.

    Now I can't login to SKYPE at all!
    Forced to use my MS account.
    There's some BS instructions on how to link the MS account and my Skype account but they don't work!!!
    Now I'm forced to login with my MS account on Skype WP, but that's not where I purchased my Skype out number and premium subscription

    This is the last straw for me. I WANT OUT OF MICROSOFT WINDOWS PHONE!!

    I WANT MY MONEY BACK!!!!1
    SKYPE SUPPORT IS A JOKE.
    NEVER GONNA REPLACE GOOGLE VOICE
    I'M LEAVING OVER THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    When upgrade comes with Verizon this fall, I CANNOT with conscious mind buy another Windows Phone.
    MS does NOT support it's own platform apps. Been screaming about this for months and it's just ignored.

    STOP THE INSANITY!!! I now have to go back to sh1tty Android, but at least Google Voice works!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

    I had a Skype account with premium features linked to a gmail account. And asecond Skype account linked to my ms account without premium features.

    To link the 2 accounts: sign in to Skype.com with the ms account and then undr Account Details, click Account Settings. Then unlink the ms account. You will be prompted to close the account. Do that.

    Wait 24-36 hours for this change to register on Skype.com.

    If you have a windows 8 pc, sign in to metro Skype app using you MS account. You will be asked if you already have a Skype account ir of you are a new user. Click Already Have a Skype account. Enter that usrname and password. This will link your Skype premium account to your MS account and you retain the premium features, and you can sign in to Skype with an ms account.

    I got this from the Skype live chat with their support representative. You could speak with them and see if this solution wouuld work for you.

    I have spoken to Skype support.
    I will definitely try them again. I don't have a Windows 8 PC.
    Before I go off on another rant, I'll go ahead and waste another couple hours of my time messing with it.

    Notice the "couple hours of my time" part. It's very frustrating and not easy at all messing with this service. Used to be very straightforward, now a hassle.

    In the end, I still can't retreive any voicemail messages or attach anything to messages when I send something through Skype...... WHEN I get it working again.

    I have a question,

    do you experience battery drain when skype is signed in on device ?

    I have a Lumia 920, using skype pretty often for bussiness at work and of course i am using it on desktop PC, but when i log off skype on my mobile phone, it last charged more than a day, when skype is on background signed on my device, lumia last charged half a day top... :( Because i am using it for work, i would love to have it on my device full time on background but then i hit a battery wall pretty quick.

    Anyone have similar issue with skype on mobile ?
