uh I get video calls on LTE no problem...
ok - then I need to go to Skype school. I pull up a contact and when I am on WiFi and they are on WiFi the video icon is there and functional. Otherwise it may just be the message icon or the phone icon that is accessible (when on 4G or LTE). I have no Skype credits and don't intend this for anything but video call via my cell phone to another cell phone.
No battery drain here. Only battery hog in this system is now Whatsapp. Its been 19 hours on standyby with occasional texts, WPC browsing, Skype IMs - no whatsapp installed. I have 79% remaining.
Skype doesn't ping your phone for push. It apparently stays awake in the cloud and checks your notifications in the cloud. If it finds you a notification, only then the cloud pushed notification and when you tap that notification or Skype tile, that's when you wake it up on phone. Very neat!
You on WiFi or network? I bought the Lumia 920 a couple weeks ago, but returned it after a couple days due to poor battery life. I honestly miss the phone, but am a little skeptical about trying another.

Guys,is Skype being active in the background causing high data usage ? I had this problem and uninstalled it as I have only 2GB monthly plan..it was consuming around 30 MB per day even though I didnt make any calls or messages from it..
wasn't that the tiles issue that has been already fixed?
I last updated it 3 weeks back but still the data consumption was so high..so uninstalled as i felt it might be due to preview version..wanna give it a try again if this is already fixed..
