  2. Change Skype Name and Delete Account without Deleting Microsoft Account

    My account was hacked a couple of years ago and someone set my 'Skype Name' as their own name. We should be allowed to change this.

    I have this hacked account and two other accounts attached to my Microsoft account, now I can't delete them without deleting my entire e-mail account. I didn't consent to this link. We should be able to delete Skype accounts without deleting Microsoft ones!

  3. As well as merging accounts we need conversations moved as well

    Because a while ago MS forced people to log into their long time skype accounts using their MS accounts but managed to create a second account rather than just a new login to the existing account. Given this screwup and all the grief caused by users finding the wrong account the only "fix" is to have all the old users setup under the new Skype login. Unfortunately this means that you will be losing all the conversations under the original account. Over and above the ability to merge accounts we need all the conversations preserved in doing so!

  5. Custom Skype User Name

    It is vital for us to have a custom clear and concise username maintaining simple communication between our customers and internal team. This was a feature of Skype in days gone by and has been removed by Microsoft.

  12. User defined, Skype Name

    I hereby submit my idea of having a user-defined "Skype Name". The current alphanumeric system in place right now seems very unprofessional. The e-mail address is good enough for a unique identification I feel. In my personal opinion, a user-defined "Skype Name" would be a better option as one's e-mail id could be avoided for the safety and security of users who would not feel comfortable in divulging the same publicly.

  16. monthly statement

    Bring back (to all countries) monthly statements/invoices!

    The helpfiles falsely claim there's a download option for
    your monthly statement.

    There is none (not for me, and the restrictions
    that the help files talk about, only mention VAT invoices
    are restricted to certain countries, but no mention that
    there's no downloadable - or even viewable - full monthly
    statement - without VAT - at all...)

    Support is completely unhelpful.

    And dismissive/in denial when I contact and just keep repeating
    that it's there, after the 5th of the following month, when I
    clearly tell them it is isn't there, not for previous…

  17. This is regarding a problem with the payment system. It appears that manual payments of only $5 may be accepted. This needs to be changed.

    This is regarding a problem with the payment system. It appears that manual payments of only $5 may be accepted. This needs to be changed. Yesterday, I needed to make a $10. Since only $5 payments are accepted, I made two $10 payments. The Skype account processed them, but the bank did not. So, when I entered Skype this morning, I found a message that a previously begun payment needed to be completed. I followed the recommendation, and a third payment was begun. The bank recognized it. However, there was still only 2 payments being processed by the bank. Thus…

  18. The possibility to chose your own Skype name

    The possibility to change the Skype name / assigned Live ID! Namely, I want to deliver link with outstanding name ( not with “live:779....” )
    There are accounts with creative IDs based on their e-mails... Why Can’t I turn my numbers of ID into a logical nickname ( link) ??

  20. Add an option to change Skype Name

    There should be an option to change the Skype Name for at least one time. The Skype generated Skype Names are sometimes ugly, and there is no workaround to either hide or change the Skype Name.
