  3. upgrade a subscription

    It should be possible to upgrade a paid subscription. I have paid for a year of calling only the UK, but would like to cancel this and replace it with a worldwide subscription. This is more expensive, so naturally you'll be making more profit. In 2019 and the flexibility of the internet, this should be possible. Thank you

  4. Paid Subscriptions

    I currently have two subscriptions for Skype-to-phone calls - 60 Minutes Worldwide (60M) and Unlimited US and Canada (UL). Now, if I make a call to the US, first of all it is deducted from the 60M, and only once the 60M is used up, are the US calls guided to the UL. Now, this means that if I make a 50 minute US call at the start of the month, I am unable to make a 30 minute China call later on in that same month, although I have an UL subscription. All US and Canada calls should be…

  5. Need Luxembourg phone number

    Skype Communications Sarl is based in Luxembourg but the general public is not able to purchase Luxembourg phone numbers via Skype. This is crazy.

  6. 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.

  7. Subscription coverage

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

  8. I can not use call forwarding as Skype does not have a drop down box for my area.

    I live on Norfolk Island which has been administered by Australia since 2016. It has a different country code of +6723 because it was previously semi governed. However, Norfolk Island is always overlooked. It is only2G here so I do not have internet while I am away from my house. Because skype does not have a drop down box for Norfolk Island, I can not call forward my calls to my mobile for my business which makes it very difficult for me and is a big hardship. I may even have to move to the mainland if I can''t get…

  10. I'd like a custom phone number; something easy to remember/similar to my current #. Have an option for checking availability of a custom #

    I'd like a custom phone number; something easy to remember/similar to my current phone number; or one that would spell a word making it easy for others to identify or remember. for example: 875-6833 in my area code. How would I check if it is available, like one would do if they wanted a custom license plate? I want this phone number because when it's spelled, it is a cliché I use often. If you add this option, can I have this number for free for making this suggestion? I'd like it with a 312 or 630 area code, however…

  14. Give us – something like a full-blown phone system. With all the features, call waiting, three-way calling, call forwarding, call block etc.

    I don't mind paying a little extra furry phone system that works properly. This is the only VoIP phone I have ever used that has minimal problems. Other than Google voice. Please add many more features. I pay for this every month for the last five years so I hope you do something to help it be more like a regular phone system.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. reinstate skype-to-phone calls of outlook contact

    One way or another allow your skype-to-phone subscription members to direct dial their outlook contacts.

    Either 1) allow skype to read outlook contacts so that we can one-click dial phone numbers from within skype (like skype used to do since pretty much version 1),
    or 2) allow access to skype from outlook so that we can right click dial via skype from within outlook

    Option 1) is preferable as one can then review calls in the skype history by contact name - And you already have the code from version 7 and before.

  20. 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?
