  6. 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.

  7. Delete Skype without affecting other accounts

    Allow for the skype account to be deleted without affecting anything else. i don't think people should be forced to integrate their account and link in the way that you have right now. One affecting the other ?!

  8. More accounts active

    We need an option to activate AT THE SAME TIME more Skype-accounts. Skype is now linked to one Microsoft-account (Hotmail) but i am a user for over 20 years and in the early days one could use simultaneously and switch simultanmeaously from the one account to the other. I now have FOUR accounts of which only one can be used.

  10. Recycle phone numbers

    Hello handsome and beautiful engineers! There should be a way for new owners of phone numbers to be able to claim and use their numbers to connect to Microsoft accounts. Telephone operators recycle inactive phone numbers a lot in many countries.
    In my case, my phone number was used by someone else who also used this number to connect to a Skype account and now I can not use it for my Skype anymore

  13. 1) do not forget login after updates 2) do not ask for a computer reboot ever for a chat program update! If needed restart services.

    Skype seems to forget the login after an update, now even asked to reboot the computer. This is very silly in an age where the computers know everything about us.

  15. Not reasonable for auto-generation of skype name

    Before Skype migrated to Microsoft, user can create account and set a preferred & personalized skype name. But after migration, new user can only have an auto-generated skype name. It is impossible for user to remember such a complicated skype name. Would you please have your development team to add-in the feature of "changing skype name" in future updates? Most appreciated if you could be more considerate your valued user. Thank you.

  17. It is an ID that starts with this: live:.cid. What is this ID? What is this account? It is so difficult to use.

    It is an ID that starts with this: live:.cid. What is this ID? What is this account? It is so difficult to use. Why do we use Skype for the convenience of work? Why do you change them into inconvenient skype? Why?
    The previous registration rules have been used for many years. Why can you even modify the registration rules?
    why is your company's smarter team making such a decision, so it is very unwise for a big company, billions of people around the world use skype, you are free to change to unwise and unwise The decision of the…

  18. Allow legacy Skype accounts to be combined with newer Office 365 accounst so we don't lose the phone number we have had for years.

    Stop annoying long term customers and allow accounts that were created before Office 365 existed to be merged.
