  4. Aviso de Bloqueo de Cuenta Skype

    Me gustaría que skype te avisara antes de bloquear tu cuenta, con algún aviso emergente y te indique el porque para no hacer lo mismo nuevamente. De lo contrario podrían desbloquear cuentas a cambio del pago de alguna multa considerable por infringir en alguna regla, con esto disminuiría el infringir las reglas nuevamente y el recuperar de alguna manera mas rápida la cuenta.

  5. Name Skype

    Я очень прошу, сменьть логин - (имя в скайп (никнейм))... Эта функция не доступна.... Я пользуюсь скайпом давно, у меня есть учетная запись оутлука (майкрософта)... и вот одна маленькая деталь все портит.... нельзя сменить никнейм!!! Это очень плохо... Сделайте это возможным... Я нехочу создавать новый скайп, или вовсе новую учетную запись майкрасофта... Мне нужна вот такая маленькая деталь, как изменение никнейма... Я думаю что многие со мною согласяться! даже люди которые создали никнейм по имени и фамилии, а потом создав семью - изменили фамилию, и хотели бы сменить (обновить никнейм, а не могут...

  8. Add a feature that allows you to change your Skype Name up to 2 times

    There should be a feature to let you change your skype name a limited number of times because some of the skype users are stuck with a default skype name or a name they did not think through when creating their account. Personally tired of the default name

  9. Allow Changes to Skype User Names Especially for Trans Individuals

    have to delete my entire Microsoft account and start a new one just so I don't have to tell people my deadname when I want to use Skype. I have multiple subscriptions that I'm going to have to figure out how to transfer over as well as my laptop and possibly my user licenses for Microsoft office. It's beyond frustrating that Microsoft, a global technology company doesn't have a way to do this.

  10. Skype ID

    Please make it possible for one to change Skype ID. Having to give people default idea isn’t a good idea at all! Especially in a case where someone combined their email and perhaps one email is more official than the other and then Microsoft will have an unofficial name on the Skype account. Not fair at all.

  15. usng a new card to pay subscriptiom

    our cc was canceled due to fraud. in order to use the new card we were forced to cancel the old card. the problem with this is that you had to get rid of the subscription to cancel it. when we then did that and resubscribed to the original subscriptio the cost went up $4 a month.. this should not be the case when i had thesubscription for well over a year.
