I've been with Skype for over 10 years. At the time I did not know that I couldn't change my name. My name is that of a nickname associated with a former business I've been out of for over 5 years (associated with Mexico & now I'm living in Costa Rica).
I have a U.S. # PLUS an Unlimited US & Canada plan - both of which are due for renewal in Sept. & I'm getting ready to renew my Latin American plan.
Is it true we STILL can NOT switch our User Name?
If I can not simply change my Skype name, I REALLY REALLY would like to move EVERYTHING over to a NEUTRAL name if I can.
Otherwise I'm looking at other options that are LOTS cheaper that even claims I can keep my current # & move it over - but I REALLY overall like Skype (& weekly convert people over to Skype that have been afraid of it - but Skype's REALLY ESPECIALLY AWESOME for us ExPats living abroad.
Yes, it is still true: Skype does not permit the change of an account name once it is created, and neither can credit, subscriptions, or paid features be transferred from one account to another.
Please note: To remove (delete) a Skype Account, you must contact Skype Customer Service directly. We here in the Community cannot process account-related service requests.
