I've had this problem from a while, but till today i was looking otherwhere to solve it. Skype account appears among the available ones to sync contacts with, but when you choose it, nothing will happen ( miui 2.1.13 and previous ... ), with last n versions of skype. well, this morning i tried to install an OLD version of skype, and it works ! it's the 126.96.36.199, modded by an ipmart guy. the version i found is modded, and it allows autostart when phone is restarted ciao a tutti !
