Skype for Windows Phone Is Basically Useless

Matthew Miller, ZDNet:

Skype 1.0 for Windows Phone lets you make Skype video and voice calls over 3G and WiFi, search for and add contacts, and make calls to landlines. However, no one can call you via Skype unless you have the app open and running on your phone. Unlike Android and iOS, Skype needs to be your active app in order to receive calls as there is no background functionality at all in the app.

Microsoft should just buy Skype so they can make sure the Windows Phone version is top-notch.

What? Oh, yeah
