    Why is it no longer possible to sign in with different accounts like the earlier version? This is too restrictive and I'm thinking of switching to Android the next time I get a new phone even though I like Windows. Please release an update to reinstate the possibility of multiple accounts. Also it would be nice to be able to see photos of users when searching for new contacts like when using a PC.

    It used to work so well on the,520 now its terrible. Cant log in using your skype name and you can't even hear peoples calls anymore. I wish you could revert updates

    "resuming" screens are everywhere in this app. Please re-code from scratch with the aim of providing windows phone with a half decent app. Third party messaging apps can do it, so why can't a company that's owned by Microsoft?
