I just obtained a skype account. I want to Skype with someone. What address do I give them? Just my username or my user name with a suffix attached? In other words, what is my full skype address?

I'm not sure what kind of suffix you are referring to (@live/hotmail/etc?). Usually your Skype/Microsoft account name should suffice. If at any time you are unsure, try searching for yourself in the Skype directory (by adding a contact). Whichever name finds you would be a valid name to relay to your future contact. I tried both my Microsoft account name and my Microsoft Hotmail e-mail address and both of them found my same account.
I Don't get it ... You said to look yourself up by adding yourself (as a contact but not adding yourself) But I can't not find ME on Skype I tried both Jeff Levy & [Removed for privacy]..
A lot of Jeff levy's But Not ME and No [Removed for privacy] at all..
so How do I get my skype address to give out to people ... I even tried my .Live E-Mail address still Nothing...
The [Removed for privacy] I didn't put there this site did that So this site might reconize my Skype Name cause that is what I signed up with...
Just your Skype name (That's the username you use to sign in to Skype) is enough for others to find and add you as a contact on Skype.
So I CAN'T use it to Find Myself then? is that what you are saying? Cause I can't find myslef and this site know my user name cause they blocked it out.... Jeff Levy is tied to my skype account to yet I get 20 to 40 other jeff levy's and some that are not....
Since Skype 6.2 version it’s not possible to search for your own Skype name.
If I search for jeff-levy using my Skype, I can find a Skype user from South Africa. Is it you?
No that is not me..
jeff-levy is only for here in the forums and I am from the USA. I can't put my Skype name here the forums remove it automaticly... But now I know why I can't find myself on skype 6.2 and I have 18.104.22.168
thanks for the info...
same, i can't find myself either
my account name [Removed for privacy]
but i can't find myself on add bar (
please help me
