My skype contacts are always online

Hello. I have this problem already 3 weeks. Some of my contacts are always online.I'm signed in skype with my skype account on 1 pc and 1 laptop. On the second laptop i'm signed in with another account. The problems is that some contacts are always online. I tried to uninstall skype a several times and delete skype history but nothing hasn't changed. PLEASE HELP!

As I have told you before, the contacts that still show online all the time are friends of yours who have  linked accounts. So pass the solution to them, since it is their problem and they are the ones to have to fix it. If they have cell phones then pass them the other message. That´s it!

 

So to sum it up. Seeing your contacts always online was NEVER your problem but theirs! Got it now? 

 

And it seems that skype will not send new requests for contacts that were already on your list....some file must have that stored.
