How can I refresh Skype?

I have been using Skype for iPhone for about three months now and it was deleted off my laptop. Now I re-downloaded it and signed in. Even though all the contacts have changed statuses and pictures many times, it is showing their statuses and pictures from October. I don't know how to refresh it. Please help?

I cannot find a way to refresh, either. Wondering why more answers for this question are not out here.

not really sure, but there seems to be a way.  Select or make the Skype Home window as active windows, then press F5.

Have you tried signing out and signing in again?  I have noticed that after I use Skype on my desktop computer to change a contact's display name, I will then sign in on Skype on my fifth generation iPod Touch and it then shows the display name I typed for that person and an updated status message.
