I've had to reset phone to factory defaults and reinstall apps. After that I did not succeed to sign in with my skype account, as it's expecting only MS acc.

WTF is that; did I miss some option? On my Windows Vista and Windows 7 machine I don't have such problems.

Skype on WP now supports signing-in with a Skype account again as of the 2.25 release.


To sign in to Skype with your existing Skype account, you'll need to link your current Skype account with your Microsoft account. There’s plenty to gain when you sign in to Skype with your Microsoft account:

  • one less password to remember
  • improved account security
  • even easier and more secure password recovery
  • access to the Microsoft online services

To link your Skype and Microsoft accounts: please follow this link

    But by doing that, the account will be always online, no matter what. Aug 12 '14 at 19:13
  • @LittleHelper that's incorrect, and irrelevant. Aug 25 '14 at 0:00
  • @ClausJørgensen-MSFT Did Microsoft fix that? Aug 25 '14 at 5:40
  • There is a logout option also Aug 25 '14 at 6:02

    @LittleHelper there's nothing to fix. At any point you're signed in on Skype on WP, you'll be online in the background, so you can receive incoming calls and chat notifications -- it would be kinda counter productive not to. However, you are able to logout, and/or turn the notifications off. Aug 25 '14 at 7:07
