  1. 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.

  2. 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…

  3. 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…

  5. 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…

  7. 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.

  8. Good day.

    Freedom to access more call time within the same month of subscription. Increase my call time per month. Example 600 to 800min per month.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

    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?

  15. 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.

  16. 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

  17. 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?!

    Please allow me to port an existing phone number to Skype. Google Voice has this ability. Why not Skype?

  19. 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.

  20. 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?
