    So I've been trying to solve the mystery of why the W10 Skype won't show detailed status on the lock screen.

    I'm running 640xl & 640 Lumia phones, both running the same windows 10 OS builds, but neither offer skype in the drop down box in detailed status as mentioned.

    I've tried hard resets, Windows insider builds also, but nothing, quick status sure it's there on both phones.

    It's frustrating due to not knowing who has messaged me via lock screen, and I won't even get into the Skype notifications disappearing after a minute as well, it's just a messy app that is quite sad to see in it's current state.

    So is this a phone issue related to 640xl/640 or widespread amongst other phones? I've reported this to the feedback hub numerous times over the last few months, but no clear answers, or fixes.

    I'm thinking of just ditching these phones and grabbing either 1520 or 950, but want to make sure it's not occurring on those handsets as well.

    It's like that on my Lumia950XL also on latest production build (15254.158). I can only set Skype to show Quick Status on lock screen not detailed Status. Can choose detailed for WhatsApp though. Bugfixes for Skype are on the way at least on insider from what I read
