    Getting torn between using the SMS Messaging feature of Band 2 paired with my Lumia 950, versus using Messaging with Skype strictly on the phone. With the phone it's useful to be able to instantly call or video the person you're Skyping with, but if they reply back a while later, you won't know it on the Band because Skype messaging doesn't sync with it.

    Scenario: I'm at work while my wife is at home; her Lumia 950 is in the kitchen charging while she is on the couch with her Surface. If I send her an SMS, she'd have to get up to retrieve it from the phone, but I would receive all subsequent replies on my Band. If I send her a Skype message, she can get it right from the Surface and respond; but if she replies again, later on, I won't receive it on the Band.

    Will this unsynchronized setup be fixed anytime soon?

    I'm right there with you, seems like it would be a simple fix as Skype is (sorta) integrated with the messages app in windows 10.

    eventually I suppose they'll do it.
