    Default Skype goes offline

    I'm running Skype 2.8.0.920 on a Samsung Gallery S2.
    Skype works fine; but it goes offline after about 20 minutes,
    and next time I use it I have to enter my password again.

    If I take Skype offline manually then my password is remembered
    next time I start Skype.

    I'm running IceCreamSandwich.

    Any advice or suggestions gratefully received.

    Simply choose the option 'Go Offline - Never'.

    Default Re: Skype goes offline

    I have the latest version of Skype installed v 2.9.0.315.
    I also enabled the option"Go offline - Never"
    After appr. 10 minutes of inactivity Skype is not reacting to incoming calls although I did not sign out, etc.
    When I click on the Skype symbol on the screen. The typical blue screen with "Contacts", "Recent", "Call Phone" etc, appears.
    I also notice that the Online-sign on top of the screen changes for a few seconds into an "Offline" and then again back to the "Online" sign. When now someone calls, everything works perfect. After 10 minutes my Skype seems to be offline again.
    Is there a way to have Skype on air all the time so that people can call me actually on Skype?
    In the settings I have the function "Sign in automatically" enabled.
    I use a Samsung Galaxy S2 phone (model number GT-i9100P), Android version 4.0.4
    I would be very happy if my friends would be able to call me on Skype. They always have the message that I am offline although I am always connected, at least I think so.
    Is someone out there who would know a solution to this problem. Thanks. Stephan

    Is there really no one in this forum who has a solution to this problem? I am bit surprised!
    Skype is nice for video and voice calls with other Skype users. As long as you yourself initiate the call, everything works perfect. the problem is, the other users don't see me as online, as my Skype always log off for reasons I do not understand. See my previous post. My suggestion, if you want to make cheap calls, switch to one of the clones of Dellmont or previous called Betamax. Much cheaper!. for the last 8 years I use their internet phones already. At the beginning some problems, but now it is OK.
    I look forward to get a response to my previous query.
    Regards.

    Could this be due to using 4G internet? My grandfather's Skype keeps logging off his iPad and he say's the 'logout-never' is grayed out (or won't let him choose it, jumping to 60 mins).

    this is looking like an app s/w issue. The app is not providing a keep alive message to the Skype server after the phone or tablet shuts off the screen. Possibly an Android operating system issue. My Ipad works fine on the skype app and stays online when the screen is off. My Droid tablet goes off line as described by others.

    It could be related to your data or wifi connection going to sleep

    Default Re: Skype goes offline

    I'm running the HTC One X and I have the same problem. I need to have it running all the time but it seems like it just randomly goes offline. Now, I do notice that sometimes when I leave the house and I put my computer to sleep, which also runs Skype 24/7, the phone will, again...sometimes, log in. It seems there is no real resolution to this unless you were running an old version on Skype but...who has that anymore!? I'm running Jellybean.
