    Why can't I receive calls in the background? This is a must have app for me, VERY annoying.

    While I have always found a small delay from my desktop, I have always received Skype calls on my phone. Not sure what your issue is. Is it installed? Is your phone turned on? Are you logged in to Skype?

    Not trying to be nasty with the questions, its just "Why can't I receive calls in the background" isn't much to go on.

    Because IT IS A BETA! It can even make your phone explode and that is completely acceptable because it is a BETA. Bad performance of a BETA app should not annoy anyone, not even Chuck Norris.

    It was happening for me, I could receive Skype calls on my desktop but not on my phone.Please uninstall and reinstall your Skype on the phone, You will receive your Skype calls on both the devices.

    I have to uninstall and reinstall when the toast notifications stop working. Which btw, one way to make it stop working is to use the volume button + power button reset.

    The app is trash, I'm tired of having to reinstall it to get Toasts to work.

    Skype doesn't work in background for WP 7.5 devices... It is working fine for me on my Lumia 920... yes there is a lag but still I receive the call and it certainly does have many bugs :P

    If it's a notification issue you could try un-pinning and re-pinning the app. It may work on WP7.8 devices.
