  2. I want to see my favorites when I select contacts -- not chats.

    Currently I can only see "my favorites" when I have chats selected. It would be more helpful to see my favorites when I have contacts selected.

  8. Japanese Mobile number as caller id

    Is there any way to add Japanese mobile number as caller id in skype ? If not, why it is restricted ? I have seen, many other countries are listed on that list of 'Add Caller Id' section.

    Do you have any plan to add Japanese number to skype caller id section? I have subscribed to a international call subscription. But my called person see 'Unknown' when I call them.

  10. Skype active status inaccurate...fix please.

    Skype doesn't show my contacts accurate active status until I close the app down and reboot it. Having to do this every five minutes which is getting annoying. Please fix it so it's correct. (Example, signs people out after 3 minutes etc, not stuck on something that isn't right.)

  18. simplify user names. Long (live. *) is useless.

    New subscriber was not given a simple username, instead was given a (live,) registration

  20. Hide Contacts That Have Not Shared Details With You!!

    In the old Skype it was better. You could hide the contacts who have not shared their details with you. Now we have all the contacts visible. This new version is a mess. I suggest that we have an option to hide the contacts who have not shared details with us.
