Now I can't login to SKYPE at all!
Forced to use my MS account.
There's some BS instructions on how to link the MS account and my Skype account but they don't work!!!
Now I'm forced to login with my MS account on Skype WP, but that's not where I purchased my Skype out number and premium subscription
This is the last straw for me. I WANT OUT OF MICROSOFT WINDOWS PHONE!!
I WANT MY MONEY BACK!!!!1
SKYPE SUPPORT IS A JOKE.
NEVER GONNA REPLACE GOOGLE VOICE
I'M LEAVING OVER THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
When upgrade comes with Verizon this fall, I CANNOT with conscious mind buy another Windows Phone.
MS does NOT support it's own platform apps. Been screaming about this for months and it's just ignored.
STOP THE INSANITY!!! I now have to go back to sh1tty Android, but at least Google Voice works!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
I have a question,
do you experience battery drain when skype is signed in on device ?
I have a Lumia 920, using skype pretty often for bussiness at work and of course i am using it on desktop PC, but when i log off skype on my mobile phone, it last charged more than a day, when skype is on background signed on my device, lumia last charged half a day top... Because i am using it for work, i would love to have it on my device full time on background but then i hit a battery wall pretty quick.
Anyone have similar issue with skype on mobile ?
I had a Skype account with premium features linked to a gmail account. And asecond Skype account linked to my ms account without premium features.
To link the 2 accounts: sign in to Skype.com with the ms account and then undr Account Details, click Account Settings. Then unlink the ms account. You will be prompted to close the account. Do that.
Wait 24-36 hours for this change to register on Skype.com.
If you have a windows 8 pc, sign in to metro Skype app using you MS account. You will be asked if you already have a Skype account ir of you are a new user. Click Already Have a Skype account. Enter that username and password. This will link your Skype premium account to your MS account and you retain the premium features, and you can sign in to Skype with an ms account.
I got this from the Skype live chat with their support representative. You could speak with them and see if this solution would work for you.
I got an issue. I tried to use another account (on PC) to call my primary Skype account (on my WP). The call went through on the PC but I got nothing on my WP. I tried it twice, still nothing. Then when I opened Skype on WP, it showed that I had two missed calls. I then closed Skype and tried to call again and this time it worked.. Why didn't it work the first time?
