  1. Slowly grey out unmessaged contacts.

    Instead of a contact jumping to the top of the contacts list when you message them, it'd be nice to have an option where everyone stays in order and those you haven't messaged in a while just get slowly more grey until they're at maximum greyness, and the ones you've talked to more recently are just their normal bright selves.

  2. Leave multiple groups or delete multiple contacts at once!

    Leave multiple groups or delete multiple contacts at once.
    It would be a really useful feature if you could leave multiple groups at once if you've got a lot of them and I mean a lot , I've got like 250 groups and I have to manually leave a group, one by one.

  4. merge contact list with mobile contact list

    For mobile, I would merge mobile contacts into skype... otherwise you have two maintain two separate lists... some info needs to be entered twice and others have missing data.

  10. contacts

    Give us the ability to edit a contact to have multiple numbers (like in the real world) Home, Cell, Work, Title, Company Name, etc. and have them link to Outlook Contacts, for easy Syncing. These seem like very basic things, I just don't understand why they are not already present!

  11. Contact Synchronization

    When synchronizing contacts with my iPhone Skype stores them in the category "all contacts".

    When making a skpye-to-phone-call this call is listed in the iPhone-call-history. But only the phone-number is added in the call-history.
    After manually adding a synchronized contact in Skype from "all-contacts" to "my contacts" the call history shows the name of the contact, not only the phone-number.
    Please change this behaviour.
    I´d like to see the contact´s names in the iPhone-call-history when synchronization of contatcs is activated. Without manually adding every contact.

  13. change the dots to something to show status of contacts to aide those that are color blind

    Instead of using color dots (orange, green) use characters such as a star or sun. People that suffer from color blindness disease can't tell the difference in a green dot or an orange dot. A star or similar character would leave no doubt what the status is of a contact.

  14. When someone contacts me through video or chat, show origin of contact along with name

    When someone contacts me through video or chat, or messaging show origin of contact, ie...country or state or city. This will help to legitimize the caller's ID.

  17. Ability to set a nickname or notes to self.

    I would like to be able to set my own name for the user in case I forget who they are. A notes field for the user would also be useful.
