so I presume you want this changed back to prompting.

> click settings
> click apps
> swipe left or right until you're displaying ALL apps
> tap on Skype in the list
> scroll down until you see a 'clear  defaults' button
> click the button
> Skype will no longer be the default phone app

rgb192,

It sounds like you accidentally set Skype as the default dialer app at some point.

1) Go to your phone’s Settings, which generally on most phones, means tapping on the gear icon in your Apps.

2) When you are in Settings, select the App manager or Apps button. It may be labeled differently depending on your device and Android version.)

3) When you are in the App manager, you should find that the default screen is of your Downloaded apps. If you swipe left, you should see options of On SD Card, Running, and All.

4) Select All, and select the app you want to clear the default settings for.

5) Tap on Skype (or whatever app you want to remove as the default), and you’ll get a screen that has App Info, and near the bottom (you may have to scroll a bit) Clear Defaults.

6) Tap on Clear defaults and now whenever you try to make a call, you should no longer be directed to Skype by default. You should be be prompted to select a preferred application, and if you want to set a new default, just click on the app you want to use and select Always.

Cheers,
LHerrou

I could not find where this is

I click clear default under manage applications->skype
I want my phone to be default

Go through the process again, make a regular call and select your dialer as the default app next time.

try to install the app below to change the default app for phone dialer to the stock phone app.
