Notification from Skype users with non-Microsoft/Live accounts are still broken.


- phone shows toast, and tile count goes up

- I tap the Skype app (or launch through toast)

- no new messages inside Skype app.

- I log into anywhere (does not need to be phone) and wait 30 sec.

- I log out from hotmail/ without doing anything.

- Phone shows within seconds a second new message notication for the same message.

- This time it does show up inside the Skype app.


Since the message did arrive and you can even see a part on the toast, this looks a least partially like a Skype App issue.



I know Skype is originally a telefony app, but in terms of chat functionality and reliability, you get a fat F on Windows Phone. Lacks pretty much all basic featues (sending pictures anyone?) and has been non-stop unreliable since the first day Skype for Windows Phone was released. It is just one issue after another ...
