I have also just registered purely to post on this topic.
The first post on this thread was in August 2011. It is now late June 2012, nearly a year later! Problem still exists.
SKYPE! ARE YOU LISTENING TO YOUR CUSTOMERS? FIX THIS!
.... and I thought Skype was bad on the iPhone... when I select an iPad contact I get ONLY the first number listed for that contact and no way to change it. THIS IS NOT A NEW ISSUE!
To make matters worse (if possible) I figured I could go back to the iPad contacts and re-arrange the list of phone numbers so that the first one is the one I need in Skype. But when I returned to Skype the old number was still the only one showeing. HELLO SKYPE ANYONE HOME? I finally had to delete the contact entirely and re-enter it with the first number which I needed Skype to use. DOES THIS MAKE ANY SENSE? I actually pay for this service?? Now I know THAT makes no sense.
Also I have a number of contacts that I want to add to a Group but there seems no way to be able to do that? If anyone knows please post. Thanks. Skype you need to sort out the Ipad version there are some serious bugs!!
