Hello all! I've had my Nokia Lumia 928 (first Windows phone) for about two weeks now and so far I have but a few gripes. One of the bigger ones is that I can't seem to figure out a way for Skype to keep me online even when the app isn't actively running.
I have quite a bit of family and friends abroad and was very much looking forward to being able to seamlessly receive international calls on my phone through Skype. I got the app downloaded and signed in with my Microsoft account. I created a new Skype profile, added some contacts and fired away. Everything worked great with the exception that every time I press Back or Start to get out of he app I am shown as being offline on other peoples' Skype accounts. This prevents them from calling me and, in my case, makes Skype rather cumbersome.
I've searched around a bit (including these forums) and found isolated issue reports as well as a plethora of commentary on how Skype doesn't properly integrate with WP8, despite it being a Microsoft service. However, I've seen people post about having had the ability to remain online with the app running in the background.
So... Long story short, is it possible to have Skype keep you online (so as to receive calls anytime) without having to have the app running on the foreground? Am I simply missing a setting somewhere?

Do you guys get notifications in time? I seem to get notification for a phone call or message about a day after it was actually made.

Hmm... Well we just got an update so I'll have to test it and post my findings.
Since no one else here seems to be having the issue I guess the next step would be to uninstall and reinstall the app.
Curiously, I do get push notifications from messages even though I appear "offline" to the people who send them to me.

Its an issue to some users. I also get this issue that I can't be available if I leave the app. The only way is to hard reset your phone as the fix is unknown. I tried so many things and for frustrated
