    After updating Skype to v 2.9.0.129, I tried to login with my Microsoft account and found out that I can't see my Messenger contacts, so I can't start a conversation with any of them. I can however receive messages from them and reply without any problems. Also, my Skype contacts don't show up in the People hub (Yes, I tried using the filter option, but the Skype option is no longer there).

    If I login with my Skype account everything works as expected (No Messenger contacts, of course) and my Skype contacts do show up in the People hub.

    Anyone else experiencing this issue? I had logged in before with my MS account in previous versions of Skype and my Messenger contacts were always there. Is this expected behavior? Can you see your Messenger contacts?

    It is an issue on all platforms, one day I can see my windows live contacts and next day don't.

    Log off Skype in the phone, go to contacts.live.com on PC and open the "manage" option, select restore deleted contacts.

    Hmm, that didn't work. It says "You have 0 deleted contacts that you can restore. Contacts deleted more than 30 days ago cannot be restored.".
    I can still see my Messenger contacts in the Skype App for Windows 8, and in Outlook.com, just not on the Skype WP8 App. This is driving me nuts.

    Then, you need to contact to Skype. My last issue (no windows live contacts) was fixed using contacts.live.com.

    Try this:

    Within the Skype app, in the people pivot, directly under the word "people" there should be a small blue arrow next to the word "Skype". Tap that, then select "all." That should bring up all of your contacts from you People Hub.

    Thanks, that was the first thing I tried. Unfortunately, I had to hard reset my phone and wouldn't you believe that I still can't see my Messenger contacts. I already contacted Skype in the Community forums. Not sure if it's a bug with the app or there's something wrong with my Microsoft account. Still, I'd be interested to hear if anybody else is having this same issue.

    Well, it just started working out of the blue and I can now see my Messenger contacts. Maybe it only took a while for the contacts to sync, who knows...
