Re: How to login by facebook account on skype for iphone

still ongoing bug.

 

I believe if we could create/change our skype name trough the web browser. this could be solved.

this way your login would be  zeze123 and not facebook:zeze.123 and you would not have the need to merge another email account.

Skype could just add, during the subscription with facebook process, the creation of a skype name.

 It's a sugestion.... customers would appriciate it.

Re: How to login by facebook account on skype for iphone

This really ticks me off. I need to use Skype - with my Skype number that I pay for - on iOS in order to stay in touch with my company's clients.

 

It's not possible to sign in with Facebook on the phone/iPad like I do on the computers. I have tried to follow advice in this thread and merge a Microsoft account with my existing Skype profile, but that doesn't work either, because that ALSO requires signing in with a Skype name. There's no "Sign in with Facebook" button, and it doesn't allow using the facebook: username.

 

Come on Skype, there has to be a simple solution to this that doesn't take years to implement. It can't be THAT hard!

Why? Is there a reason not to allow long-time Skype users to run the app?

 

If I had known this a couple of years ago I would never have merged my Skype account with my Facebook account, but now it's too late. A lot of people use my current Skype name and number to reach me. If I create a new account to use for mobile they still won't get hold of me when I'm out and about. 

 

I've been waiting for a solution to this for years. Not kidding; years.

 

If you can't fix it, find a way to work around it. There has to be a way to satisfy this demand from your users.

Re: Skype login using facebook

This is ridiculous. After the launching of ur fancy update on ios, there's still no way to log in from a fb account. I've much balance on my fb account and I just can't use it at all from my phone, nor get my credit return. This is HUGE INCONVENIENCE!!! And all i can do is have two accounts and ask my friends to add me from two accounts and msg me via both accounts. THIS IS JUST RIDICULOUS!!!! FIX IT PLEASE!!!!

[ Edited ]

I have to disagree and I refuse to create 2 accounts. Thats complete and utter BS. I have Tons of contacts on my facebook but have to create 2 accounts because the skype developers are too lazy to put the most basic form of authenication on their application. But You know Microsoft owns skype, hints why this "Free" service is acting so **bleep** all the sudden. What there needs to be is another solution. A competitor with the same protocol. Its rediculous they keep coming out with all these meaningless updates and keep avoiding the real issue. I too merged my Skype Account with my facebook account and now I have to suffer for this ?

You know, it's not just skype but also facebook. I'd keep your life simple and not rely on fb. It's a temporary holding spot anyway. Technology is and always has been workaround.

Re: How to login by facebook account on skype for iphone

I managed to log on to my account on my iPad, but it looks like it's a different profile as I don't see my contacts... Way too difficult!
