Problem with skype contacts in Android


Apr 19, 2012
Hi. I have a little issue with the skype contacts in Android.

In the Android's Contact application (Address Book), the contacts to be displayed can be selected/deselected based on the application wich they came from (FB, Twitter, Google...)
But, skype contacts can not be hidden (desselected). Instead of the option to select/deselect them there is only a "more groups..." option wich doesn't let to do anything.

So, please, i need the option to hide/unhide the skype contacts in Android, same as the other apps.

Here are some screens of it...

Note : I cannot post links yet..

I do not want to stop synchronizing skype contacts, i just need to hide them sometimes.

Thanks in advance !!
