    Skype is owned by MS, but major catching up needed for WP. The new 8.1 update should improve on this . Can't wait. For now, using this run down messenger to stay in touch with my contacts. 😐 To the user reviewing windows phone in this Skype review: stick an android phone in your sound hole. I still use android phones and tablets and they're not all that. Have a preference? Take your pick and enjoy. Everyone hates fanboys without discrimination. *****.

    You have to have a shitty hotmail account in order to use this. You cannot just use your Skype name like on a computer. Its awful.

    Just upgraded to Windows Phone 8.1 (via the free "Developer Preview" program) and wow what an improvement! It's hooked right into the OS perfectly. I can switch from a regular to Skype call while in the call!
