Note: Lync Mobile 2013 isn't compatible with any earlier Lync Server versions (i.e., if you're hosted on Exchange 2007/2010, Lync Mobile 2013 will not work for you).

Please make sure that Skype for Business Secure Chat and Conferencing is enabled for the user you are going to setup. If not then you will need to enable it first. Read our Knowledge Base article on How Do I Enable Skype For Business For A User? for more information.
