you won't get rang unless you have opened Skype within a few minutes of the call. This is part of Skype's failure to impliment push technology into their application which the iPhone fully supports. There are applications like Backgrounder that will give you a work around, but it requires you to Jailbreak your phone. As someone that will not Jailbreak their phone you're just stuck reading the forums looking for an update to their App.
I have the same problem with iPhone 4 and iOS 5.0.1. No ringing unless skype is open in the foreground - if it's running in the background nothing happens. When I open it again I see missed calls.
Yes. This is useless as a phone service if it doesn't ring on your phone or IPAD. It's pretty annoying. It used to ring in the past but doesn't anymore.
I discovered there are two places to set hte notifications.
settings -> skype
settings -> notifications -> skype
You need both to be turned on.
Now I'm wondering if there is a way I can get notifications for calls only. I hate getting notifications about every chat message that comes in.
