  4. Reimbursement for lost access to paid services!!!

    I just spent two hours on chat to finally fix the problem of not being able to log in and not being able to find the right help articles that could fix that problem.... I was not able to access chat for the last several weeks and so I lost a month and a half of paid services, which I was told I cannot receive reimbursement for?! Extremely bad service. I have now discovered Zoom and there are other providers, so I may just have to leave Skype if this is true! Very sad that this would be the way…

  7. refund

    Permit refunds to all who request them via an Updated Terms of Service/ User Agreement - why upset users by hoarding their money?

  8. The Jordan subscription is limited to 200 minutes per month, which is too few. I would prefer to purchase an unlimited package.

    The calls to Jordan subscription is limited to a maximum of 200 minutes per month, which is too few. Ideally there would be an unlimited option, or even a 600 minutes per month option would be an improvement.

  10. Ethiopia

    Additional payment options for Ethiopian customers. The payments options listed under Ethiopia aren't really available here. Someone would have to go to the US and other countries to have credit cards since we don't have those here and our debit cards can only pay for local transactions. Maybe a system can be created where we can deposit the money to a Skype agent here and that can be used to purchase Skype paid features without having to use credit cards or other payments methods.

  12. Instead of ending a call when i run out of subscription minutes but have a second subscription allow the call to carry on

    When a subscription runs out in the middle of a call don't cut off the call but where the user has a second subscription start using those minutes, it's not great having the 60 free minutes that when they end so does the call.

    I have purchased 4 packages before the lockdown, and now we cant use them as most businesses stopped, I reached your support but they said they cannot neither refund nor extend the expiry date. I believe you should take the situation into consideration and not consider your usual policies. Thank you for your consideration

  15. teamviewer like remote pc control

    It would be nice to allow the control of pc or mac by the remote party by sending a code . Similarly like teamviewer is doing , and that they pretend to charge for.

  16. abonnement

    Hello,
    It would be good if we could choose to use the Office 365 minutes instead of a paid subscription.
    Thank you.

  17. Allow unused credits to roll over and accrue! Why would unused credits expire? We are buying them after all as part of our subscription

    If Skype credits are included with an Office 365 Subscription, at the rate of 60 credits per month, then we become owners of a product we paid for. If I add funds to my Starbucks card, Starbucks does not "expire" my funds if I don't use them by a certain date. That would be theft and fraud. This is no different. If I purchase an Office 365 subscription and then go a full month without using any of my Office products, what does Microsoft do? They bill me for another month, which includes another 60 minutes. I should therefore have…

  19. A good idea would be to stop charging an inactive account

    Apply a similar policy to paid products as to Skype credit. Rather than continuing to charge an inactive account temporarily suspend it/make it inactive - some sort of check that it is appropriate to be taking money.

  20. Real-time billing system

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