  1. Make Skype manager more user friendly

    Redesign of how the SIP group admin and clear concise documentation needed regarding working examples.

    SIP Group admin can not have inbound calls and this is not well known.

    Their account seems to be limited to managing the other user's features and such but call routing is known to be a non-event or troublesome.

    To compound this issue this forces for example a SOHO user to set up another account just for this purpose.

    Risking instant security breach if any matching details are sighted.

    How dear boffins at MS is that helpful and why is it in all this time…

  4. Replacing expired, compromised or canceled Debit/Credit Cards

    When Customers need to update their billing payment options online, there should be a simple approach such as Deleting the current Card and Adding the new Card details. Once added, simply 'linking' the New Card details to the existing Subscription should suffice. As far as the Auto-Charge goes, that should be a 'separate option' given at the time the New Card details are being added.

  6. Skype number

    I suggest to have an additional option for the Skype Number customers.

    Currently once you purchase the number, the only option is to request for cancellation and refund.

    But, I suggest this option;

    Reserve the number for 1.00 USD /Month..
    And reactivate when you are in a geographical area that Skype is allowed to operate, Like Europe, North America..etc

    By having this option, the customer has the choice to keep his number (like in my case), while still making a small contribution to Skype.

  8. Save passwords and usernames for ALL accounts! (with option to not save)

    What is the point of asking you if you want to have your username/password remembered, if it gets forgotten once you sign out? If you have different ID's, you need to enter ALL THE DETAILS each time you switch back and forth. Seriously, please fix, I am not the only one complaining!!!

    You can have an option for those who don't want that info saved.

  11. removing old skype names

    Years ago I signed my daughter up for a skype account so she could speak to her grandparents. As she was quite young at the time I signed her up using my email. Fast forward a number of years and her skype name is now it seems forever linked to my Microsoft account. Now that Microsoft has bought skype it seems that every time I try to log into skype using my Microsoft account it brings up my daughters skype account not mine. The only way I can sign into my account is with my user name and not my…

  12. Archaic user-unfriendly Skype credit reactivation requirement

    It is abundantly clear from scores of help questions regarding reactivating Skype credit that Microsoft's reactivate policy and implementation is archaic, inappropriate, dysfunctional and downright stupid. When will Microsoft see the light and make it work properly or, better still, kill off the out-dated requirement altogether.

    Requiring users to reactivate their credit is an appalling failure of Microsoft's marketing department and reflects an inability or unwillingness to understand how their patient customers use Skype. For just one example, for people who use Skype while traveling but travel less often than every six months, Microsoft requires them to plod through the…

  15. prevent having to sign in every time skype is opened

    Prevent having to enter user details and password every time skype loads as the laptop is turned on. Makes for a much smoother and better user experience.

  18. change skype name one more time

    I created Skype account with Skype Name is my old email, but now I don't want to use this Skype Name anymore. Because I work with many people and share my Skype Name for them. I don't want to share this name. However, I also don't create another account. Therefore, I want to change Skype Name, only one time is ok?
