  2. Since Skype has already feature for money transfer, it should have ability to transfer fund between Skype and Paypal.

    If I have xtra Skype credit, I should be able to transfer it to my link Paypal account and vice versa. It will maximize the ability of fund management for Skype users.

  3. Landline as caller id

    I’m wanting to use Skype to make work calls when out of the office, and for my iD to show up as our landline number. The trouble is I can’t register the number as Skype requests a txt confirmation, and with different numbers or it showing as blocked my clients won’t answer my calls

  6. aldesquintero@outlook.com

    Good Evenings, I can suggest that Skype allow its users to change the ID of their accounts, for example in my case on all social networks I have a habit of putting Aldes Quintero or AldesQuintero as username without space, then in skype above for no understand the microsoft exchangue interface service in outlook and what I hize was to delete my account thinking it was outlook, such as it was problems with the browser and as I thought it was outlook create another outlook account using aldesquintero as name but in s kype appeared aldesquintero_2 and I am not…

  7. Profile Status with the same account

    Hi
    Return separate status on the same account.
    I have Skype on my laptop and on my phone. I was able to pick different profile status on each but now after the most recent update a few days ago now if I put online both of my skype goes online. I am using the same account and I was before but before I was able to have 2 different statues but now no.
    I really think its important to have two different statues especially on the phone since its 24/7 with you as a person.
    Thanks

  9. CID Skype Name is confusing and unprofessional

    The change to for new accounts to use an auto-generated skype id similar to: "cid.5r789ghi979hf79" is a terrible decision.

    This name displays when you search for a user and looks unprofessional next to older account names that are readable and memorable. If Skype wish to force people to use e-mail address only then at least hide this string from view and communicate this to users.

  18. Remember most used settings on new devices/logins

    When I install on a new devices, all settings, especially notification settings are set to defaults, and I need to change them every time to what I normally have.

  19. Display Email When Edit Contact

    Display contact email also while editing or viewing any contact.
    I have many many conversations and skype name can be different than my sheet.
    I phase much problem to find the user of skype in my sheet as some contacts added by their email address and I can not check existing contact's email address.
