  1. Don't block SKYPE account easily

    I used SKYPE to explain the truth of Falun Dafa to the people of the Public Security Procuratorate and the Court in mainland China, and to prevent the CCP from persecuting good people who believe in God. So I made more calls, and I urge you not to block my account for this. It would just allow the evil CCP to continue to do evil! And harvest the organs of Falun Gong practitioners alive to make huge profits. Such evil continues, I hope you can stand on the side of justice. Cautiously block account. Thank you!

  2. Please allow me to change my Skype username

    Allow us to change our Skype username without having to delete our Microsoft account. I'm a transgender man and my Skype username is still my female birth name, I hate it, want it gone, but unless I'm willing to delete my whole Microsoft account then I'm not able to, please fix this for all LGBTQ+ Community members

  3. Skype ID change/delete

    Have a possibility to change, or delete or merge Skype IDs. That is a big problem for all of us.

    Also, I am paying a Microsoft Pro package. I would need to be able to delete or change some of the services. Now, if I want to delete only my Skype ID I NEED TO DELETE WHOLE MICROSOFT ACCOUNT.
    Tahat's insane.

  5. Option to unlink Skype account from Microsoft account

    I have a Skype account linked to my Microsoft account that I don't actually use. I have another Skype account that is well established that is not on the Microsoft account. I would love to be able to unlink the existing Skype account so that the other can be added to my Microsoft account. Also it would be cool just to be able to unlink in general.

  6. 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"

  8. Connecting old Skype account with new MS account

    Hi. I have had a Skype account since before it was a MS product. You created a new Skype account for my MS account, which isn't that one.

    My MS account is connected to my MS365 subscription and my Skype account is connected with a Hotmail email, which became it's own MS account.

    Please allow me to merge the Skype account with my new MS account.

  9. 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.

  13. Unlink Microsoft and Skype Accounts

    Currently, legacy Skype Usernames are hard linked to Microsoft Usernames. If you delete your Skype Account, it deletes your Microsoft Account. As a result, even Microsoft/Skype Support is literally unable to change a Skype Username for extenuating circumstances

    If Microsoft auto-generates a Skype name for your Microsoft Account, you must keep it. If your child makes a silly Skype name on your Microsoft Account, you're stuck with it. In my case, I am a transgender male and beginning at age 16-and for a decade-I used a username that was "FirstMiddle" of my pre-transition name for nearly every only app with…

  14. Unlink skype/microsoft account

    Dear Microsoft, Are you really that stupid that you have to force people to link their skype to their Microsoft accounts. Things were fine before you did that!. Please allow us to unlink the accounts. You're ruining peoples lives. A lot of people are very upset with you about this issue and it needs to be taken care of as a priority. No more stupid updates you broke what wasn't broken and that was the unlink feature. Taking it away was a dumb move on your part. Bring it back or we will revolt against Microsoft or you'll lose millions…

  15. Being able to delete a skype account only, a request for mental illness survivors.

    Those with mental illness that see Skype as a trigger for trauma doesn't want their accounts to exist. Being unable to delete the Skype account prevents peace of mind for thousands of users who don't want to use this service anymore.

  16. Be able to delete Skype without getting rid of your Microsoft account.

    Be able to delete Skype without getting rid of your Microsoft account. I really don't like Skype all to well and I just want to delete my account without getting rid of my entire Microsoft account.

  19. Make Skype interoperable with Microsoft Teams non-work accounts

    On Android and iPhone, we can now set up a Microsoft Teams account with a personal account. It's slick. It's called Personal Self, Microsoft Team Consumer, or something like that.

    But such Teams personal accounts do NOT interact with regular Skype. (To do that, we must have a Microsoft Teams. work account.)

    This makes no sense. Why would I get Team personal account if I can't chat and call my regular Skype friends?

    Please add this interoperability.
