  1. I had my account blocked and there is only one way to unblock it that is to use the first 6 digits of the credit card that was used last tim

    I had my account blocked and there is only one way to unblock that account. Which is to give the first 6 digits of that credit card.
    They are not even ready to give me the name on the credit card used.
    It is very restrictive. There is not an alternative way to unlock your account even if the world was under nuclear attack and unlocking this account would save the world. Skype will still require those damn six digits to unlock that account

  2. I am currently paying for time with my previously created Skype account that has all my contacts in it -while I cannot make use of the 60 mi

    I have a current Skype account with all my history and contacts. I am now paying for 60 minutes with my MS365 account but I cannot make use of that because I cannot combine the two profiles any more. Used to be able to do this, but it has been taken away. Can you activate that again please?!

  3. 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

  4. 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.

  5. Warning before credit finishes rather than cutting the call once skype credit finishes

    Rather than dropping a call once skype credit finishes during a call. Either issue a 5 minute warning (maybe turn the skype app red color or a small deep noise) or automatically add credit with the credit card in the system (prior approval given) or switch to free skype.

  7. Caller identification using my Skype Number for Germany

    I bought a German Number but can't set it up as Skype Caller ID. So I always have to tell my customers that I call not to call back the number they see in their diplay (if at all). Are their plans to enable this feature for Germany? Or can you set it up for my account somehow manually?

  9. Merging accounts or transferring subscriptions

    Whether I can merge my two (accidentally separate) accounts or not, I would at least like to be able to transfer my subscriptions from one account to another. At the very least, I would like to be able to keep the same Skype Number when repurchasing a subscription in the other account. Even cell phone companies can manage this!

  10. Activer de nouveau l'abonnement Bulgarie- Téléphones fixes et mobiles appels illimités

    Avant il y avait un abonnement Bulgarie- Téléphones fixes et mobiles appels illimités. Pourquoi cette option a été enlevé. Pourtant vers d'autre pays il y en a un abonnement pareil.
    Pourriez vous la remettre.

  12. Refund ignored

    I have purchased or subscribed to this promo- World unlimited calls last September 21, 2019. The purchase was made through Apple.

    I tried to use this subscription but it never works for me. So I reported this issue to Skype support and I requested for refund. The person from skype support then referred me to Apple. Immediately, I logged a report to Apple and got feedback that my purchase does not meet condition for a refund.

    What a respond! I could not simply get a refund from a skype subscription that I have not used at all.

    What a deceiving…

    Olá, adquiri recentemente um número Skype com prefixo da cidade de Bauru interior de São Paulo. Gostaria de sabe sobre a possibilidade de adquirir um número de celular através do Skype, visto que o padrão de número celular no Brasil contém um dígito à mais.

  14. unlimited plans to call to Bangladesh

    unlimited plans to call to Bangladesh
    I have been a regular user and buying subscription to call to Bangladesh. Bangladesh is one of the most populous country and many people of this country live different parts of the world ( a large market for Skype). I hope skype will decrease the calling rate and come up with an unlimited package at a reasonable price.

    Please think about it.

  16. Skype Unlimited World Name is Misleading

    The Skype Unlimited World name is misleading because it doesn't include all countries in the "world."

    I just redeemed 6,400 Microsoft Rewards points for a 3-Month Skype Unlimited World Voucher. I then redeemed the voucher in my Skype profile and tried to make a call. I intended to use this for calling to Tanzania (I am in the US), but when I tried to call, I was told that Tanzania wasn't part of the Skype World Unlimited service and I would have to pay to call to Tanzania. Tanzania is in this "world," isn't it? Because Tanzania isn't included, I…

  17. Buy gift right from the Skype app

    I tend to purchase a lot of small gifts 9Skype credits) to my loved ones. It is such a hassle to do so. I wish I could do it right inside the app without going to other URLs. Just click on contact and choose the options.

  19. important skype calling credit features for the skype app

    please enable users to change their credit or debit card in the app without forcing them to log into skype through a browser to then buy credit as that lead me to top up the wrong account today. For example, add a LINK that enables them to change their credit or debit card in the app. Also, enable users to purchase credit to call countries WORLDWIDE from the app, and i don't mean through subscriptions, i mean WITHOUT having to buy a subscription . This is something i wasn't able to do today either. Instead i was faced with 3…

  20. Don’t lie on subscriptions calling them ‘WORLD 60 MINS MOBILES AND LANDLINES‘ when they can’t make mobile calls in the UK. ’

    SKYPE -
    Don’t lie on subscriptions calling them ‘WORLD 60 MINS MOBILES AND LANDLINES‘ when they can’t make mobile calls in the UK. Then don’t make this acceptable by saying it’s not available In the UK but offer an additional paid service called ‘UK mobile and Landlines 400 mins’. It’s either available or not!
    Inducements and deceit compounded by bad promotional practice frustrates customers.
