    Hi,

    Is there any option to make Skype online when phone is locked.
    I logged in to Skype and when ever phone get locked Skype is signing off and not able to receive messages and calls.

    Hey are you running windows phone 8 or windows phone 8.1 ?
    If you are running windows phone 8 , go to phone settings / wifi/advanced /tap on keep wifi on when screen times out. Windows phone 8.1does this automatically. And if you are using any data connection , it's also on when the screen times out :)
