  4. Need to add a Search Field in the Group Participant list

    When I want to search for an individual participant name from the list, I can't because there is no option to search.

  7. Here's a crazy new idea, how about letting customers sign in with their old accounts instead of FORCING new AUTO-GENERATED accounts. JERKS!

    Let customers sign in with old accounts and emails and cease this DRACONIAN sign in format and STOP FORCING AUTO-GENERATED ACCOUNT NAMES ON US!!!!!

    You people are the spawn of *****!

  8. I am having to contact my bank to block skype from accessing my account?? I want to remove my payment method so that you cannot charge me!

    Really should have been something here for me to help me resolve my "issue" . .. so I just cancelled my membership as that seems to be the only option?!

    So I was charged last month for something that I am not sure about... around 6$

    As far as I can tell, while signed in, it shows that I only had the subscription.

    I was not aware that they could take money from my account FOR ANYTHING without notifying me first... and don't tell me that updating to the newer version of skype that tells me IN VERY SMALL NUMBERS…

  11. password tweaking

    Make it so that you can easily enter your pass word manually, like if your network password changes, so if the auto-sync fails you can still access skype without having to know about DCP servers and other stuff I didn't go to school for!

  14. Be able to delete Skype without getting rid of your Microsoft account.

    Be able to delete Skype without getting rid of your Microsoft account. I really don't like Skype all to well and I just want to delete my account without getting rid of my entire Microsoft account.

  19. 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.

  20. Skype ID change/delete

    Have a possibility to change, or delete or merge Skype IDs. That is a big problem for all of us.

    Also, I am paying a Microsoft Pro package. I would need to be able to delete or change some of the services. Now, if I want to delete only my Skype ID I NEED TO DELETE WHOLE MICROSOFT ACCOUNT.
    Tahat's insane.
