Pidgin buddy list question

I'm using Pidgin 2.6.3 (portable application) and have an issue with one 
of my contacts appearing online when they are actually offline.  He has 
a mobile on the account so not sure if that makes a difference but I 
would like to know if there is any way I can correct this or adjust it 
so that the contact appears online only when he is online.

Thanks.
