    I have an iPhone 4 running the latest firmware. I keep it logged in, but it will not ring when the App is closed or even open on occasion. I have it set never to go offline and i have sounds and alerts on.

    Any ideas? A search of this brings up a lot of people with the problem, but no solutions.

    I think it uses push? Is that on and working?

    Yes. I'm getting voicemail notices, but it won't ring

    Actually it is different than push. Since Skype is VOIP it actually keeps running in the background. It is a bit of a battery killer when running.
    Not sure why it isn't ringing for you, but I do have the same problem as you. I find the most reliable way to receive a call is to have the app running in the foreground.
