What should I do if notifications in Skype for Windows Phone 8 stopped working?

Windows Phone

If you’re experiencing any issues with availability status, chat and calling notifications in Skype for Windows Phone 8, try reinstalling the Skype application.

If you install Skype for Windows Phone 8 at the same time you install Microsoft Lync 2013, notifications may be unreliable when Skype is closed.

To resolve this issue:

  1. Uninstall both applications – Skype and Lync 2013.
  2. Reinstall and start Skype.
  3. Keep Skype running for about a minute.
  4. Reinstall Lync 2013.
