    Je ne suis plus capable de me connecter a skype avec mon compte yahoo sur skype a partir de mon windows phone. Il me demande de creer un compte microsoft si je n en ai pas. Que faire pour se connecter a skype sans compte microsoft. Je crois qu il faut nous laisser le choix et non nous obliger de nous connecter avec microsoft car moi je n ai pas besoin d un compte microsoft.

    GREAT! Not sure what the negative reviews were as advertised.

    Needs to be extremely update to its iOS and PC counterparts. IM sync also needs to be improved. It keeps cashing upon entry of a chat with many messages.
