  3. EVERY COMMENT ON THIS PAGE IS ABOUT SIGNING IN OR OUT

    So why don't you let your customers decided whether to stay signed in or not? Why REMOVE the option when it's clear that we want to choose for ourselves?

  4. SIGN IN AUTOMATICALLY

    Put "sign in at program start" option BACK. On what basis could you have possibly decided to remove it?

  5. Changing of the Skype ID

    I need you to add a feature to change the Skype ID. I have registered the account and ID was added to me automatically. I want it to be custom or at least as my email address (before the sign of @). I need it to be added to my signature in Gmail and how should people find me on Skype? No one will enter these letters and numbers in the search bar.
    Please, add this option to Skype Settings.

  6. provide phone number and customer service agent/rep.

    You should provide a phone number and have a live customer service agent with whom Skype users can talk about billing issues.

  7. Multiple Skype Accounts

    Hi.
    I noticed my account with Skype Name was locked and I was unable to retrieve it. So I tried email to login and Skype created parallel second account with weird Skype Name, which I can't edit or change.

    Strange.! Why on the earth, a software system should allow anyone have two accounts, one with Skype name, he can't use it. One with same e-mail id, he can use it but have a strange Skype name. Instead, Skype support should only help retrieve the original account and make the life easy. Isn't it. I hope Microsoft/Skype would love their users…

  9. credit on an account should not be able to be cancelled or deleted.

    do not keep threatening to cancel my account, which is in credit, for lack of use.
    I want it there, or refund it, but no you cannot just eat it.

  10. block skype id

    My advice to Skype is that it is better than blocking someone's account that the work that is wrong should not be done, there should be a message that this is not allowed.

  12. Signed out of Skype - Locked Account

    Writing here as a last ditch effect since Microsoft has been absolutely reluctant in helping me this far.

    I have had my Microsoft account for months, associated with my Gmail which I've had for even longer. The services I use are Skype and on my PC. I logged into my account for Skype. About a week ago I tried to get on my account and it said there was an issue and I had to go to my browser at accounts.live.com to get it working again. I did that and verified my account. When I logged in I saw a message saying…

  14. Skype ID

    Please bring back the option to edit our skype id, I don't want to share my email id or number to anyone, especially new people. Or else at least give us a once-time chance to set our ID, like Skype used to have before the Microsoft acquisition. (live:.kjb47iwebfw4j...... <- This thing is useless) Let us have something proper, pls

  20. Allow account recovery directly from a real human

    I would like my account to be recoverable by talking to a human being and going through steps to recover, rather than filling out a form that has rejected me 4 times, while hackers were able to re-gain access to that same blocked account. The current system gives your customer service representatives nowhere to go if the current system fails. Please give them one for people like me, who have sincerely tried multiple times, for hours, and failed to get their account. This needs to be changed.
