Skype keeps dropping on my iPod touch

Hello Support,


I live in Sweden and have an iPod touch that's running the latest iOS. I skype video call a 2-3 times a day with my gf who lives in Switzerland, she has an iPhone also with latest iOS.

We both use our respective WiFi connections (sometimes she's on her 3G) and lately our calls drop, either I'm disconnected, either it's her... but it happens every 5-10 min.


Is there any settings we can change to improve this? It affects our communication :-(


Thanks for your help!

I have an iPhone 4 with iOS6 and it happens to me as well....


Drops the call every 5 minutes. Then tells me I am off-line when I try to call back.

Really annoying. Reboot of the iPhone did not solve it. No newer version of Skype available.
