  1. User defined, Skype Name

    I hereby submit my idea of having a user-defined "Skype Name". The current alphanumeric system in place right now seems very unprofessional. The e-mail address is good enough for a unique identification I feel. In my personal opinion, a user-defined "Skype Name" would be a better option as one's e-mail id could be avoided for the safety and security of users who would not feel comfortable in divulging the same publicly.

  5. monthly statement

    Bring back (to all countries) monthly statements/invoices!

    The helpfiles falsely claim there's a download option for
    your monthly statement.

    There is none (not for me, and the restrictions
    that the help files talk about, only mention VAT invoices
    are restricted to certain countries, but no mention that
    there's no downloadable - or even viewable - full monthly
    statement - without VAT - at all...)

    Support is completely unhelpful.

    And dismissive/in denial when I contact and just keep repeating
    that it's there, after the 5th of the following month, when I
    clearly tell them it is isn't there, not for previous…

  6. This is regarding a problem with the payment system. It appears that manual payments of only $5 may be accepted. This needs to be changed.

    This is regarding a problem with the payment system. It appears that manual payments of only $5 may be accepted. This needs to be changed. Yesterday, I needed to make a $10. Since only $5 payments are accepted, I made two $10 payments. The Skype account processed them, but the bank did not. So, when I entered Skype this morning, I found a message that a previously begun payment needed to be completed. I followed the recommendation, and a third payment was begun. The bank recognized it. However, there was still only 2 payments being processed by the bank. Thus…

  7. The possibility to chose your own Skype name

    The possibility to change the Skype name / assigned Live ID! Namely, I want to deliver link with outstanding name ( not with “live:779....” )
    There are accounts with creative IDs based on their e-mails... Why Can’t I turn my numbers of ID into a logical nickname ( link) ??

  9. Add an option to change Skype Name

    There should be an option to change the Skype Name for at least one time. The Skype generated Skype Names are sometimes ugly, and there is no workaround to either hide or change the Skype Name.

  12. Please Let Users Create Their Own Skype Name

    Please Please Please let users create their own Skype Name. The current Skype Name assigned when creating an account is a long and confusing series of words, symbols , letters and numbers that make no sense. It would be much better if we could create our own user name/Skype ID.

  15. Make merging accounts easier (with one button)?

    I have Skype and an inadvertently one created (when I added credit) in hotmail.
    Now I have one with credit and one without, but cannot easily merge.
    Can you fix this. I see lots of similar proposals but no action....

  19. Make it possible to change Skype name

    I recently changed my surname for family reasons so am in the same position re my last name, as anyone who gets married. Microsoft however refuse to let me change my Skype Name even though my Microsoft Account name reflects my new surname. This is not just sexist, it's anti-choice, anti-change and simply anti-human.
