Re: creating a new account


So does this mean that you don't have a username at all.  That the only thing that shows up in your contacts list is a phone number?

Yes. As of 2016 or 2015 you can no longer use a user name to create an
account. You have to use an email or phone number. It sucks big time.

I hope that helps just a little bit.

hi guys

I was am trying to create a new account for a friend and the first
thing I see is enter phone number and then create a password.

once the account is created and I open skype, the phone number I used
is displayed as the username rather than the person's name.

any one got a clue as to why this is happening?

i'm using windows 10, jaws 2018 and skype version 7.40.103.

many thanks in advance
