  2. Requesting the ability to change Skype usernames and the ability to unlink accounts without affecting current Microsoft accounts connected

    Usernames should not cause confusion for utilizing either Skype or Microsoft accounts. Please make it possible to change the Skype Username to the email associated with the Microsoft account. This would be for a select number of cases where the username NEEDS to be changed as a result of the Skype and Microsoft merger. In the future it would be great if there was the ability to change Skype usernames and the ability to unlink accounts without affecting the current Microsoft accounts connected to it.

  3. Unlink Skype name from wrongly linked Microsoft email account

    Please Microsoft, find a solution to unlink wrongly linked Microsoft email account with Skype name, in order to link the Skype name with the right Microsoft email account... There are a lot of people out there, who are struggling with the same issue. I understand it could have been our "fault" to link the wrong accounts, however, what could be done, SHOULD be able to be UNDONE, don't you think? :)

  6. Skype Id Deletion

    I've tried to unlink and delete but I can't i feel this should be an easier solution to either change or delete given we didn't create the name in the first place. Please unlink my Skype profile from my Microsoft account and delete it or just delete the name or allow me to change it

  9. Merging old Skype account (user name) with/into Microsoft accounts (email address).

    I have a Skype account that I created before Microsoft acquired Skype. The account is 'based' on a user name. I recently created a Microsoft account with my email address. Same email address as is in my account settings for the old Skype account. However, Microsoft automatically created a new Skype account for me. Why couldn't I just migrate my existing old Skype account to Microsoft and sync them all up?

  10. Same phone number for multiple accounts

    Allow multiple accounts to use the same phone number. I have two accounts and am not allowed to list the same phone number for both of them. This makes it difficult to manage the account where I am not allowed to have a phone number. It’s very frustrating

  12. The ability to reset my skype account

    Because Skype accounts are Microsoft accounts I am not able to reset it without closing my entire Microsoft account which would cause me to lose everything from emails to purchases. This should be rectified ASAP.

  16. Permita que possamos trocar o numero de telefone que recebe código de verificação.

    Meu celular foi roubado e não recuperei o número. Por isso quando tento entrar no skype, recebo o código de verificação por email, porém a segunda verificação por sms não é possivel visto que não tenho mais o numero de contato. Isso impossibilita o acesso a conta e não encontrei nas configurações nenhuma opção que me ajude a acessar a conta novamente

  17. Give us an Option to Unmerge Microsoft and Skype accounts

    I just can't understand how the idiots working with this company could be stupid and brainless enough to actually remove the option of unmerging a Skype and Microsoft account. Literally, WHY??? Please for the love of god put it back, everyone's getting notifications for accounts they are not a part of in my family due to accidental merging and it's . Please just put the option back. You don't want your application to be constantly berated by everyone? Then listen to these *** feedbacks and put that option back because everyone hates you for removing it in the first place

  18. Need better account recovery procedures

    After the most recent update to Skype, I was logged out of my account. I couldn't remember my password and now my account is locked. I have had my account for about 15 years. The account recovery questions are not very flexible, and even though I provide answers that I know are correct (credit card #, contacts in list, etc), I am told it's not sufficient information to prove I own the account. Then it recommends I create a new account. That's great, except:
    1. There is a $$ balance on my locked account
    2. I have a Skype-in number…
