all of a sudden all of my contact groups are gone. All options for creating groups have also disappeared from the client.
I installed the updated iOS clients yesterday so I think this is related. Something is very borked.
Ooohh.... I got it. Skype *deleted* all contact groups because they now call the feature "Tags". But instead of migrating your contact groups into tags, they simply deleted everything.
I would like to say *beep* you very much.
I have the same darned thing. I had all my iPhone contacts, Skype contacts, etc. which were listed under Skype just simply go away. Yeah, there is an iPhone contacts button, thank you very much, but I'm NOT HAPPY about the app deleting my entire contacts list. No, there are no tags, nada, zip. And no warning that was going to happen. Bad show, Skype.
