This issue occurs because the contact is not matched based on the phone number. It is only matched based on the SIP or simple mail transfer protocol (SMTP) address in Microsoft Lync 2013 (Microsoft Skype for Business).

To resolve this issue, install the July 14, 2015 update (KB3054946) for Lync 2013 (Skype for Business).

Note Lync 2013 was upgraded to Skype for Business in April 2015.
