Run android service with startForeground

Hi to all.

In my android application I have a background service that needs to be always running (with "startForeground"). If I install my APK on Blackberry Q10 the service starts without problem, but if the user kill the application the service is stopped.

I see that Skype (that is an android application) has a different behaviour: if the user kill Skype application the background service (i.e. the client-server communication channel) is not stopped.


How it is possible? And why my service is killed by OS when the user kill the application?
