The same problem with iPad3 and latest skype app. I am using the plantronics m155 headset. I submitted the feedback through the online skype form. If this problem exists already from 11-2011, then is Skype anyway interested in solving this issue?
Not really smart of Skype to ignore this problem, from a marketing point-of-view. Skype+iPad+bluetooth=not working. Also the app crashes sometimes when just trying to make a call.
Unbelievable, there even is another 7-page post! http://community.skype.com/t5/iPad/Bluetooth-heads
Skype people: we are waiting!!
I've contacted support via chat. They said reinstall will fix it. I asked whether I should reinstall before each call. The person did not answer that, but said he'd elevate this to someone and they'll contact me back by e-mail.
(iPad 3, 5.1, Sony Ericsson BT VH110, Skype 4.0.1264)
I've recieved followup from technical support staff and I am trying to persuade them that it is a bug. After two e-mail rounds (again specification of HW, SW, BT headset), I've received a suggestion to tap the mic icon to switch to BT. I've tried my best to explain that exactly, THAT is the thing that does not work
Skype and its technical stuff are f%^& useless.
This problem has been going on for over 5 months and nothing done about it.
They don't listen to their customers
Yup. At least it makes a good point for discussion "hey boss, we need this f**k amount of money for conferencing solution that works". Suprisingly, that won't be Skype
