  5. Allow users to search and add unlimited Skype contacts

    A few years ago and before, users are able to search and add unlimited Skype contacts. Now when users search a certain number of contacts and add more than 5 or 6 contacts a day, their accounts get restricted. Remove these rules and allow users to search and add unlimited Skype contacts with no time restriction in between each search and add and always. All of us have many families, friends, loved ones, work people and people we need to search and add as our Skype contacts.

  7. Skype Contacts - issue with showing numbers not names on incoming calls - iPhone ios

    When receiving calls on Skype on the Windows 10 system, i can see the name appear, if the contact is in my saved contacts. The caller is identiifed - CLI.

    I have thousands of contacts syncing from Outlook. The contacts are on my iPhone too.

    When receiving a call on my phone (iPhone X) it only shows the incoming call number - NOT THE CONTACT. It only shows the contact name AFTER I HAVE ANSWERED THE CALL!

    If i go in to Skype i can see the name and contact.

    This is ONLY AFTER THEY HAVE CALLED. If they are…

  9. Contact search should allow filters, such as country, city, etc. to narrow lists

    When searching for long-lost friends to invite, lists of matching names are often huge and few on list have any filters, such as age, location, etc. which would help to narrow down search.

  12. Permanently block someone

    Currently, blocked contacts are still accessible and if you unblock them, messages they may have sent or attempts to call suddenly pop up. The link between a blocked contact and a Skype user should be completely removed.
