Settings Help.

On my IPhone I have Skype set as right after I leave the app I go offline instead of 15 minutes or 30 minutes, but this affects my calls and I can't check any other apps. Where can I find the setting to change it back to not going offline right when I exit the app?

On the Home screen, there should be a 'Settings' button.
To the left, scroll down until you find the 'Skype' bar
And there, should be a button that says 'Go Offline' and you can choose the amount of time it takes until you go offline while Skype is running in the background.
I use an iPad, but the iPhone should be similar. Hope I helped! :bigsmile:

Re: Settings Help.

I cannot find the Setting button. My problem is the format of my directory. I want a simple list, but I am getting icons for each entry. Can you help me change that?

Re: Settings Help.

A clarification, please. I am using iPad, not iPhone. Sorry.

I don't think there's a way you can change the Skype directory so the profile pictures don't show.. well not that I know of :tongue:

Re: Settings Help.

Do you think I could reduce the size of the pictures? They are about one-inch square - very uncomfortable, The PC version and the iPhone both have small icons. That would be a help.

Re: Settings Help.

I'm not sure this is the answer you're looking for, but, as far as I know, the iPad itself is sort of designed that way. Well, it's more the fault of the OS, technically.
Most things/Apps on iPads look zoomed/magnified when compared to iPhones.
I'm not surprised Skype is the same way.
