  1. delinking

    Please allow delinking of the Skype account with my Microsoft account. We did a mistake of using her Skype account with my Microsoft account and now, I cannot use my own skype account.

  2. View Call History within the Android App.

    Please make available the call history within the app, without having to login to the website as this is very inconvenient and annoying!

  4. iphone skype for china

    due to china's policy (Internet telephony is forbidden),chinese apple user can not download skype from app sotre for a long time. implore skype team for china can provide a skype version that remove the function of phone calls,call function is not what everyone needs ,China's WeChat and QQ, voice and video call quality is bad, but Skype in China can provide high-definition voice and video calls, unfortunately, Chinese Apple users can not download Skype from the Apple store. Really want Skype in China App Store to resume downloading

  5. Locked account

    My account has been locked for 3 weeks (don`t know the exact reason). I have filled special form to unlock it, moreover I contacted live support for 4 times, and they all speak the same - there is a high volume of requests, please wait, your request is in a priority list, they will contact you in 24 hours.. But still nothing. It is SKYPE policy, that they lock accounts for nothing, it is SKYPE problem, that workers have high volume of requests, so why do users have to suffer from that? Double the workers, who deal with requests, change…

  7. 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…

  8. delinking/demerging skype and hotmail accounts

    the whole process is ridicoulous, sort it out. Cannot even delete the account and recreate one after 60 days because Microsoft has its own definition of the word delete. It makes a mockery of even trying to use Microsoft products for business purposes. totally shambolic

  10. Fix skype account duplicity issue

    I was just made aware that anybody with a skype account active before the merging of Skype and Microsoft, actually have two accounts both linked to the same email address but individually accessible with username and email, respectively. I discovered this because of an email regarding a subscription I couldn't see in the account I was logged in. My idea is that Microsoft should finally merge these two Skype accounts so that whether using your username or email you log in to the same account.

  11. You should have a running balance. Currently you can only see your current balance and transaction / call history.

    You should have a running balance for your skype credit. Currently you can only see your current balance and transaction / call history.

    Mobile phone providers with a pay as you go deal provide this as standard.

    This is especially of importance when you are auto-recharged as there is no paper trail / evidence that an auto-recharge was necessary.

    Many thanks.

  14. As well as merging accounts we need conversations moved as well

    Because a while ago MS forced people to log into their long time skype accounts using their MS accounts but managed to create a second account rather than just a new login to the existing account. Given this screwup and all the grief caused by users finding the wrong account the only "fix" is to have all the old users setup under the new Skype login. Unfortunately this means that you will be losing all the conversations under the original account. Over and above the ability to merge accounts we need all the conversations preserved in doing so!
