  2. Local Greek Number [landline/mobile]

    It would be great if Skype offered local Greek phone numbers (which it currently doesn't). If it was possible to have both landline numbers and mobile phone numbers, that would indeed be amazing. Cheers!

  3. Skype number SMS

    Skype number should be able to send MMS messages with photos and also the number should be able to be used for verification codes! It cannot do either of these now and that's a major disadvantage.

  5. Include Australia as a country that can send Caller ID -

    I have purchased a Skype number but when I call people in Australia it doesn't allow me to send my caller ID. For what ever reason Australia isn't included in the countries that accept sending caller IDs. Can Skype please update this so Australia can send caller ID.

  8. Conference call to a landline for elderly people in corona-time

    Is it possible to restore the function of calling to a landline during conference calls? My father is currently in a nursing home and my mother, brother, sister and I would like to have a conference call because my father sometimes has too little for one day on his one single person call. Because my mother is already elderly and panic about the corona virus, she does not want us to use a shared telephone. This is because the nursing staff only has time to contact one of us by telephone once a day. Unfortunately my father is not able…

  9. Subscription

    The subscriptions in South Africa Are Limited, which is very unfair compared to the other countries that get far better offers than People in South Africa please add more subscriptions to South Africa such as Unlimited Mobile calls just like you have in the united states.

  10. Please Provide the feature for users to be able to transfer Skype subscriptions or Skype Numbers to another Skype account.

    Since people using multiple accounts or may need to access the Skype number with another account it's needed to transfer the purchased skype number into another account. it's also the possibility of purchasing a subscription for calling a specific country and after a while, you may not need it at all. so it's possible to transfer it to some else to use the subscription benefits.

  12. Payment Page

    I just wanted to add that your payment page needs an update as I had to make 4 transactions just to add required funds to renew my subscription from 1 month to 12 months. I need you guys should have option to enter custom amount as well. When you put the custom amount it should auto calculate if it is equal or higher the amount what we have entered and it should not accept lesser amount from the billed amount.

  15. Skype number should have the feature to receive security codes, confirmation codes or OTPs.

    Skype number should have the feature to receive security codes, confirmation codes or OTPs. I have a US brokerage account and it requires a US phone number for verification and since I cannot receive security codes on my skype number, I have look for some other solutions

  17. Open skype while in COVID-19, then older people can talk with family. And maybe they will stay if they like it.

    Op dit moment zitten veel oudere vast in een verzorgingshuis zonder enige vorm van contact met hun familie (man, vrouw, kinderen of kleinkinderen).
    Indien jullie skype openen zullen zij weer contact kunnen leggen, en als het ze bevalt zullen ze misschien wel blijven.

    Indien dit een mogelijk is zal ik mij inzetten om ervoor te zorgen dat bv een mediamarkt of coolblue of andere firma zal kunnen gaan voorzien in apparatuur.

    Met vriendelijke groeten,
    Joost Nooijen

  18. I wish that Bahrain gets added for the Microsoft Office Family 365 free minutes ASAP, or at least be able to use it while using VPN/US IP

    I wish that Bahrain gets added for the Microsoft Office Family 365 free minutes ASAP, or at least be able to use it while using VPN/US IP. As it is not fair because we are paying the same amount that other countries customers are paying.

  20. Cancel subscription button on skype number parameters really does not exist

    It would be nice that the Cancel subscription button on skype number parameters really does exist. There is no way to cancel a US skype number currently
