Yes MSN is the right terminology, Microsoft has now purchased SKYPE and will be closing the messenger service (MSN) down over the next month, if you log into MSN you will see the message "A new version of messenger is available get it now" click on "get it now" and skype will be updated and you will have all your contacts moved over to skype, you will then be able to log into skype with your skype login or MSN login with MSN login all your contacts are present but with skype login only skype contacts.
