Re: IOS 5 & Skype - Does not ring in background any longer

Issue was finaly replicated by Skype.

 

I have been told they are working on a solution as of Thursday, November 3, 2011.

 

If past retrofits are an indication of how quickly issues are resolved, we have a long wait.

Re: IOS 5 & Skype - Does not ring in background any longer

Found a solution that works: go to Settings, then Notifications, then scroll down to Skype. Turn Notification Center ON, select ALERTS as the Alerts Style, then turn on Badge App Icon, Sounds, and View in Lock Screen. One more step so Skype doesn't log you out: Go back to Settings, scroll down to Skype, and turn on Sign In Automatically, then in the Go Offline section select NEVER, then in Notifications turn on both Sounds and Alerts. That should do it. Now my phone rings and Skype never goes Offline unless I log myself out on purpose.

Mine is set up exactly like you described, but skype is still unreliable. Attempts to contact me fail more often than not.

Re: IOS 5 & Skype - Does not ring in background any longer

I have made the changes as suggested by network support. The phone rings when it it on ringing mode but if it is on vibration mode, it only vibrates once.....

with iOS 4 it used to virbate till u answer the call, just like it vibrates for a normal phone call.

Is there a solution for this problem? Or can this problem be addressed.

 

Thanks in advnace

What about the iPad? At least on mine, Skype is not listed in the notifications menu.

RE: vibrate mode

 

My iPhone 4 just vibrates once, I thought that was the way it was suppose to work, if not I'd like to know how to change it.

Re: IOS 5 & Skype - Does not ring in background any longer

Hi,

 

I'm running iOS5 on iPhone 3GS and after som testing I unfortunately discovered that the behaviour is irregular. First, I made all settings according to the support staff instructions. After that, I've tried calling a few times. Result - sometimes it works and sometimes not. E.g. three or four calls work fine, and then the next one just hits the invoice. I've made these calls (from another phone) without doing or changing anything on my iPhone.

 

This is unacceptable. Hope to see a permanent solution.

Re: IOS 5 & Skype - Does not ring in background any longer

This weekend I finally updated my iphone 4. Now I am regretting it because Skype does not run in the background. I've tried all the tricks and tips but it's useless. It happened once before with the upgrade to iOS 4. I have a Skype number and most prob will not renew my subscription because I miss all my business calls. What a bummer and how can Skype not be able to fix this? I think it's a shame.
