  1. customer service improvements.

    Rackiing up false extras for ridiculous charges has given Skype a bad name. Why should users pay for Skype's errors

  2. Caller ID for More Countries

    Please add Caller ID to more countries.

    In my case, I would like to have this for my South Korean Skype number.
    If you look through the suggestions, you will see a great demand for this. It's just spread out in requests for different individual countries.

  4. Confusing information about subscriptions

    As for subscription to call uk says landlines and mobiles yet vodaphone a large carrier in the uk is not covered.. there should be clear indication on which carriers are covered.. I purchased twice different subscriptions and had to spend time getting credits, even agent was confused.. which you should do more training to cover these issues. I should not be the one educating your agents.

  5. Non subscription charges on 1800, 13xxxx, 1300 numbers

    I can pick up my mobile phone and dial 1800, 13xxxx and 1300 numbers for free or at the cost of a local phone call and certainly not timed.

    Skype's rates are not competitive and it is at risk of dying with the dinosaurs if it does not address this issue.

    As I can now use Microsoft's Your Phone app on Windows 10 and Your Phone app on Android, I'm about to cancel all of my Skype and addon subscriptions.

    Please address within the next month so I can justify and retain my Skype subscriptions going forward.

  6. Skype phone new plan

    Hello,

    I would like to see my "current paid plan and minutes available" until the last day it is valid. I do not like the fact to be charged ahead of time (3 days) specially when the re-charge feature is not enabled on my profile.
    Also, a longer period of validity for minutes paid would be much more appreciated and allow more customers. 30days from purchase date it is not enough for some people.

  7. Receiving Automated SMS from Banks, Websites, etc...

    Currently, skype number does not receive SMS verifications from many institutions such as banks, internet companies, etc...

    Please look into this ASAP since this is a much needed feature for proof of ownership of this phone number.

    Many parties require proof of ownership before accepting the number for any use.

    Thanks

  8. Quit displaying ad's to paid office365 and onedrive premium users.

    Quit displaying ad's to paid office365 and onedrive premium users. I paid for the Skype service and was told there would not be ad's anymore? Sigh Microsoft... I'm getting sick of you scamming.

  11. Charge the correct rate for calls to land lines

    Skype advertises a cost of €0.03 per minute to call land lines in Ireland. However, it is faulty, and can mis-identify land line numbers as premium rate numbers.

    E.g. land line number: +353 (0)1 5141234

    Skype will mis-identify this as a premium-rate number that starts with the "1514" prefix, and charge a rate of €0.34 per minute. Despite premium rate numbers not being contactable from outside the country.

    I would suggest fixing number identification in Skype so it charges the prices advertised. The above Skype bug has costed me all my credit.

  16. 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
