    Hello

    I've been trying to use Skype as I would on the iPhone but I can't....

    On the iPhone Skype would be 'always on' for days! Sometimes I even forget about it and after 4 or 5 days of my first login I was still able to receive calls...

    On Android I start up the app... I can make and receive calls... then I put my phone to sleep... and bye bye Skype... is this how it should be!? I noticed that my account keeps online but I can't get any calls... :-(

    Any help ?

    Thanks

    Skype v2.8.0.920 on Android v4.0.3 on my tablet:
    Options:
    Log in automatically
    Go offline: Never

    The above is the real Skype. There is another "Verizon Skype" in the Google Play store. Which are you using?

    My apologies. I keep thinking everyone is under the Verizon regime.

    My Skype does not do this it stays on until I sign out of it, again though I am using the stock Skype APP on Verizon's network. You don't have a smart action set up to turn data off when you turn the display off do you?

    No, I'm not using smart actions for that... My skype account stays on (i'm still online if I check it on my mac, with another skype account) but if I try to skype my phone nothing happens...

    On your phone settings do you have the setting "Receive calls from", what is that set to? And a check box for "Enable Video Calling"?

    The "Receive calls from" option is available to me when I go into the settings towards the bottom.

    But again this is the stock Skype APP on Verizon.
