  1. The Account Page

    I got confused as I did not know that a Skype # was different from a calling subscription. I would suggest you list them on the original account page as such as opposed to the Skype # as a feature. Navigating to find out they are 2 different charges is not obvious. Name them as 2 different subscriptions on the original account page. Or list the Skype # as a PURCHASED OPTION.

  2. Two skype accounts associated with the same phone number

    I have my phone number as a primary sign in for my skype account, but recently i created a new account through my email and provided the same phone number, thinking the accounts will get merged, but a new account got made and my previous account (as phone no was primary sign in method) got replaced by the new account.

  4. In the billing information a Skype user should be able to update his credit card information (more specifically the expiry date of a credit

    A Skype user should be able to update their credit card (especially the expiry date) by themselves by clicking on the expiry date button and not have to contact Skype support and wait and wait only to be told that it cannot be done and that it has to be done by the user. Just driving users around in circles unnecessarily.

  8. prevent having to sign in every time skype is opened

    Prevent having to enter user details and password every time skype loads as the laptop is turned on. Makes for a much smoother and better user experience.

  13. remove live from skype id

    Remove "live:" from Skype IDs. It looks silly and is prone to error.

  16. Delete Skype account without deleting Microsoft account

    Have the option of deleting the Skype account from your Microsoft Live profile.
    An MS Chat helper has just written:
    "If you proceed to delete your Skype account, the associated Microsoft account will be closed as well"

  17. I suggest an option to switch E-mail / emergency Login

    Just in case user has signed in initially with a user ID as an E-MAIL which he no longer uses or any other issues. There should be a functionality to switch email ID or Add, Edit, Update the same for Login of Skype as well.

  20. Change Skype ID

    Allow users to change their Skype IDs. I made my account in middle school, 10+ years ago, and now want to change it to something professional, but am unable to do it. Very frustrating.
