Not sure if this has been posted already but to delete your chat history:

Go to your messages option and where it lists each individual chat you've had with one of your contacts either by yesterday, 1 week etc slide your finger from left to right and a "delete" option in a red box appears next to the chat history you want to delete.

No matter how many times you swipe and delete, the messages are still there. Is this a flaw in Skype for iPhone? Please tell us and advise as how to fix this or when a fix will be available. The answer to this problem showed a technical incapability. I hope someone at Skype can answer this.

It does not work, the message reappears. Any other ideas that do work would be welcome.

This took me forever to figure out.  Its more then just deleting.  You have to said.  Make sure you are not logged in other places.  For example I frequently stay logged into skype and my phone at same time.    Both have to be shut.   Skype on computer had to be set to delete history forever.   Then shut both at same time.    HOPE no one skypes you before you can reopen and then they are deleted.   I kept getting messages from one person and his took until he went offline for a bit and was able to do this while no messages were incoming.    


Hope this helps clarify.  I played around with this for awhile before I figured it out.
