  2. It is an ID that starts with this: live:.cid. What is this ID? What is this account? It is so difficult to use.

    It is an ID that starts with this: live:.cid. What is this ID? What is this account? It is so difficult to use. Why do we use Skype for the convenience of work? Why do you change them into inconvenient skype? Why?
    The previous registration rules have been used for many years. Why can you even modify the registration rules?
    why is your company's smarter team making such a decision, so it is very unwise for a big company, billions of people around the world use skype, you are free to change to unwise and unwise The decision of the…

  3. Allow legacy Skype accounts to be combined with newer Office 365 accounst so we don't lose the phone number we have had for years.

    Stop annoying long term customers and allow accounts that were created before Office 365 existed to be merged.

  7. A faster way to remove old conversations or messages would be lovely

    I guess everybody’s gonna have to post on here before they will do something about it but a massive delete would be great

  10. Quero fundir meu antigo Skype, cujo login do Outlook.com eu mesmo excluí com o atual (que surgiu automaticamente na criação de outro e-mail)

    Eu precisei excluir um e-mail que terminava em @live.com porque estava tendo problemas com determinadas pessoas que tinham acesso a ele e que não eram confiáveis, também porque vinha spam demais das mesmas fontes e eu então criei um novo terminado em @outlook.com. Aconteceu que eu não consegui trocar o login do antigo Skype de @live.com para @outlook.com e eu ainda ganhei uma conta extra de Skype automaticamente apenas por ter criado um novo e-mail e não consigo fundir as duas contas, nem excluir a segunda! Vocês estão fazendo a mesma coisa do que o Google: ditadura e imposição, pois…

  12. Блокировка учётной записи Skype при добавлении контактов

    Сделайте что нибудь, чтобы не блокировалась учётная запись Skype при добавлении 2 - 4 контактов в сутки. Это смешно и обидно, за то что я добавляю себе несколько Skype контактов в день меня блокируют, и потом раблокируют и не могут объяснить причину блокировки, всё на систему спирают. Так сделайте что нибудь со своей системой и не обижайте людей!

  13. Customized Username - Earlier whenever we created a Microsoft outlook account, we used to get the username of skype as out email except the

    Guys, Please at-least let the users decide their own username. I don't know what kind of update have you guys done. Now, if you create a new Mircosoft Outlook account, it automatically generates a typical Technical ID for skype which is really odd to have. Earlier, we used to have our customized username like our email. For god sake, please bring back the old feature of having customized username and please allow users to change the username of their choice. Please bring it back.

  15. Change Name Discreetly & Unlink Account

    I want to change my display name to my real name so I can devote my Skype account to family affairs. But I also don't want my former contacts to see my new name because I want my real name kept secret from them. Please, Skype, allow our display names to be invisible to non-contacts, even if they are former contacts.

    Also, please allow us to unlink our Skype accounts from our Microsoft accounts. I should be able to delete my Skype account without deleting my Microsoft account.

  16. Skype account recovery options - Denial of Service

    When trying to recover a skype account using the Account Recovery Form, It is almost impossible to recover one's account.

    The skype chat support team should be given access to sufficient information to be able to assist in verifying the user's identity and helping reduce the auto-rejection email.

    Great security is essential but Denial of Service sucks!

  18. When creating an account it rejected a copper.net e-mail address. I use copper.net as a accepted Microsoft account, so why not with Skype.

    when creating an account Skype will not accept a copper.net e-mail address while Microsoft does so for account uses. Also when using a phone number for an account name, the setup program assumes the phone number is a cell phone and not a land phone. This needs a workaround on setup.
