  1. Bring back custom voicemail at least for people who are PAYING for a Skype phone number. Skype's canned message is unprofessional.

    If I am paying for a Skype number, I should be able to customize my voicemail message. The technology exists as I had a custom message when I first purchased my number. The canned message is terrible and diminishes my professionalism.

  2. Skype free minutes should available in India

    Skype free minutes not available in India with office 365 subscription. It's very bad. Microsoft should enable it for India too.

  3. Real-time billing system

    I suggest introducing the payment system, which connects users and service providers and bills its services in real time,
    as in the applications

  4. Subscription coverage

    Don't write "Covered by Subscription" in the call window for premium numbers that are not covered! Customers feel cheated

  5. Quit displaying ad's to paid office365 and onedrive premium users.

    Quit displaying ad's to paid office365 and onedrive premium users. I paid for the Skype service and was told there would not be ad's anymore? Sigh Microsoft... I'm getting sick of you scamming.

  9. Free SMS

    I would like to see a plan that offers a certain number of free sms messages with the 3 month plan. I understand that the bottom line matters. For people that are not serious skype folks...fine, but anything over a three month subscription should allow free SMS to Cell....without a doubt.

    I do not want to have to get a cell phone, and paying 11 cents a message is useless. I end up having to cross use with Facebook, and alot of my elderly friends do not like, or want to utilize Zuckerbergs platform to take us into the next…

  10. Custom Ringtones is a must feature, for using paid phone number on Skype. For business, it is professional in my opinion.

    For a paid service, this should be an option as more and more people are using these phone numbers for business. Makes it embarrassing to receive a skype call in the middle of a meeting or during business events.

  11. Good day.

    Freedom to access more call time within the same month of subscription. Increase my call time per month. Example 600 to 800min per month.

  12. Credit Support for Iranian Students

    Hi,

    I have a request and wanted to share an idea with you about that. You may have heard from the news that due to the protests, the Internet in Iran has been shut down for about more than 48 hours and it is not clear at all whether the government is willing to allow Iranians to use the internet again.

    https://edition.cnn.com/2019/11/18/middleeast/iran-protests-explained-intl/index.html

    Because of that, many Iranian students studying abroad cannot reach their loved ones in any way. Most of us have been using the Skype trial credit to contact our families (via their mobile or landline phones), however, I…

  14. Better rates for non-profit organizations

    It would be very helpful if Skype can offer special reduced rates for approved non-profit organizations so they may make cheap international calls through Skype.

  15. Create a Skype Phone

    I'm a huge fan of my Skype Number. I'm less of a fan of my phone carrier. I'd love the option to have a Skype phone.

    I'm envisioning an Android or Windows Tablet the size of a phone that has 4G or Longfi and works with Skype as the primary messaging and voice app.

  16. I don't want to change the worldwide subscription i currently have, nor the other subscriptions i have allocated to other persons in skype m

    I don't want to change the worldwide subscription i currently have, nor the other subscriptions i have allocated to other persons in skype manager. Because they're exactly what i need. So i'm asking would it be possible to assign the offer of office 365 to one of the subscriptions i already have?

  18. 1 Skype Subscription for both incoming and outgoing calls

    1 Skype Subscription for both incoming and outgoing calls. It is confusing having to get 2 subscriptions and it could be so much easier to create 1 that is bundled.

    case number too: 1487540963

  19. Bring back the old subscriptions/calling plans available -- the current ones are very expensive!

    Bring back the old subscriptions/calling plans!! -- the current ones are very expensive! Previous plan was "Skype Premium 300 mins - 12 months" for $42.339 AUD. I could call worldwide using that; and I used this for years.
