  1. 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.

  3. Why limit the worldwide to landlines in the EU??

    I have a worldwide sunscription and is really useless; it is limited to landlines for countries in the EU. Unles this is changed (no one has landlines anymore), will stop subscription as it serves no purpose)

  7. Ability to add Welcome message

    Skype In - dial in number.
    A mandatory feature has been added to our Skype-In number requiring callers to press a random digit 0-9 in order to connect call. Your support team has advised us this was a new feature implemented to limit/ stop SPAM callers.

    We would like the ability to personalise the welcome message, and record our own voice asking the user to press a number to be connected through. In this way callers can be certain they have reached the correct company.

    It is very unfriendly the way it has been currently implemented.
    Thank you.

  9. The process for German address verification is being handled incompetently

    This is a complaint.

    The process by which you are handling the German "address verification" is utterly unacceptable, and incompetent. You sent one email three months in advance, stating I should have received a paper letter in 2 - 4 days.

    The email was not seen by me, and the paper email never arrived.

    There was no further contact from you in any way - until I received an email stating the business number was canceled and irrevocably lost to me. This was my business number which was on all business correspondence, business cards, clients lists, etc.

    Your support personnel…

  10. When there is a section for plan and subscription. Why don't you have the same for number subscription.

    When you have a dedicated section for plan and subscription, why don't you do the same with number subscription the app I'm using doesn't show any details under number section.

    As most of the time I will not pay both at same time. I know you have auto subscription active but just to review logs of how long I have this number what are my expenses date and time would be really helpful.

    If you implement this let me know I'll have a good story to tell people about my experience with you.

  11. Paying flat rate for Skype number and calls without the need to worry about data usage when abroad (no roaming costs WW )

    Currently I have to pay for skype calls to landline or mobile, plus I need to be connected to the Internet, which is fine in Europe or when I have WiFi but when traveling aborad I need to pay super expensive roaming fees.
    How about there would be WW flatrate, where I would not have to worry about roaming fees WorldWide and I could make calls wherever I want. For example I woud pay 15E/15USD for 300 mins I could use to call skype landline or mobile whereever I am without worrying about paying extra roaming costs for data usage?

  14. Don't charge for the next minute and show the duration with millisecond during the call

    Would it be possible to show the duration of a call with milliseconds? Asking because I know that you charge for the next minute even if I end the call on 8:00 min, but realized that the same thing happens with 7 min 59 sec calls and it would be good to see actual duration of the call (during the call), because when I contacted your support they said that the call was 8:00:00.178, but I don't see this information anywhere, even in my calls detailed summary.
    And, of course, ideally, would be good not to charge for the next…

  15. Better mobile Plan for Brazil

    Today, the best plan for calling mobile in Brazil is a 400min landlines and mobile while there is an unlimited world plan for both situations. Why Brazil is not in this plan? Or could we have a better plan instead of this 400min?

    There's no justification for making credit inactive after a few months. Please end the policy.
