Skype ID Change or Create 2nd account skype id with same e-mail ID

Hi,

 

I want to change my Skype id, how it is possible.

If I can remove this id and recreate a new account, will better....

Or may I create new Skype account by using this same e-mail id.

 

Please help!

you can only abandon an old account that you do not wish to continue using, in favour of a new one, and there is no restriction on associating the same email address with an additional Skype Name

you can't add a second name to an account

 

sign out, and click 'Create an account' on the sign in screen to create a new one

Thanks. I was going to ask the same question.

Can you have both accounts open at the same time?
