  1. Skype login forced me to use my hotmail login

    when asked by skype support chat to upload something on their FTP server, the system forced me to login using my hotmail account, when in fact, prior to this I had a skype username that was using a gmail account. I purposely set it up like this so my skype username account would not merge my contacts from my hotmail account. I only want the skype username account to at most have its own independent set of contacts. The chat person asked me to post this on this forum but they will also investigate how to decouple my hotmail account…

  9. Skype charging $18.40 for a call to a land line that would have only had a one off cost of $0.37 is inexcusable.

    In Australia, all government Institutions and most businesses have a 1300 number. When these numbers are called there is only A one-off charge of $0.37 but because Skype charges these calls at $0.39 per minute, what should have been only a $0.37 cost if I had used a landline Skype Charged me over $18 for the same call. Add to this that calls to mobiles in Australia are not free as advertised on Microsoft 365 accounts. This service is next to useless in Australia.

  10. Auto logout from Skype account

    I ran into a very terrible problem, namely, Skype is throwing out my account every day and I have to log in again by entering my login and password. Stupid tips like "clear the profile folder" do not help. The problem occurs on three different PCs with different access to the Internet, on one of them, for the test, you have installed pure Windows 10 without third-party software, and there is also auto-exit. The problem began after I uch. Skype record combined with account. Microsoft record.
    The problem occurs on all versions of Skype since 8, at the moment Skype…

  18. Give CS agents a mechanism to re-add packages

    I have subscribed to a skype long distance package for 10 years. recently, i had some issues logging in to my skype account (due to some confusion relating to the move to make skype accounts microsoft accounts many years ago) in order to update my CC number and my package expired.

    Now i find i can't renew the existing package and must instead pay a higher rate for the same service as a new package, and that your CS agents cannot give me the old package back or give me a discount on the new package.

    that is an absolutely…
