Hello,

 

I'm running a Android Samsung Galaxy S3 SGH-I747 on 4.1.1.

 

I'm using the latest version of Skype for Android 4.5.0.39600.

 

The issue i'm having is contacts that were previously Blocked and Deleted are still showing up in my contact list.

 

I have tried the following:

1. Click on the previously blocked/deleted contact and select Delete

- Contact does not delete

2. Unblock and contact and click delete & block.

- Contact does not delete, just shows blocked.

3. Sign out, Sign in to Skype for Android

- Blocked/Deleted contacts still exist

4. Uninstall, Redownload & Reinstall Skype for Android from Google Play and sign into Skype.

- Blocked/Deleted contacts still exist

5. Login to Skype on my Ipad or Ipod

- *Contacts do not exist (as expected)

6. Login to Skype on my PC

- *Contacts do not exist (as expected)

 

In Skype for Android if I click on: People | All, the blocked/deleted contacts show up.

If I click on People | Skype, they don't.

 

 

These contacts were blocked and deleted over a year ago. As mentioned in 5 and 6, they do not exist on my PC or my hardware with iOS.

 

The issue appears to be isolated to my Android phone. I have not linked my Skype name to my Windows Live ID, my Windows live ID is also not associated in anyway with my phone. 

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks in advance.

Just to add to the above.

 

Sync Contacts is set to Don't Sync, in the settings menu.

 

Thanks

I have a Samsung S4... same version of Skype...just installed.

Previous old Skype account on a PC ... not addressed in this post.

 

A.  I find this to be what I experience when I  Sign in from Skype.

 

B.  It does not occure when I sign in from my MicroSoft Netmail ( Outlook ) account.

 

WHY?

 

How to correct on Skype login?
