    Hello guys,
    I don't know if someone of you have already experienced this, but I have some strange problems with Skype and Viber.
    The core of the problem is that Skype and Viber keep ringing for several seconds after the answer. Skype is worst- for the next 15 seconds after picking up, the phone is still ringing even if I close the app. Viber is better (3-4 sec after picking up). The interesting part is that this occurs only if I do answer on Springboard and NEVER on lockscreen. Once I turn off under notification the option "View on Lockscreen" for both apps - everything is in order again, but I loose the advantage of having lockscreen's notifications.
    What can be the reason of this problem?
    My phone is 4S, JB and running 5.1.1.

    I've never used Viber, but I use Skype a lot and I get issues like this all of the time on a non-jailbroken iPhone 4.

    One time, it rang, I answered the call and then it crashed, with the ringing sound playing until I rebooted the phone (I tried killing it in the multitasking tray and that did nothing).

    Other times the ringing continues for a few seconds after answering the call (often very LOUDLY!)

    Skype is by far the buggiest App that I use regularly.

    Thanks for your response!
    I understand that Skype is way too bad, but I have never experienced this with Viber, even on my previously JB-en iP4...
    So, the strangest thing for me is that both apps work flawlessly when I answer from the lockscreen...
    Very annoying...
