  1. 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.

  2. 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?

  4. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. Stop making credit inactive

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

  10. 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…

  11. 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)

  13. Refresh the subscription at 00.01h every 1st of the month. Secondly, return the Skype customer support telephone contact

    It works better for users if the calling minutes are activated on the exact time as the new month begins i.e 00.01h on the 1st of each month.

    Secondly, telephone contact makes contacting customer support faster and easier. Chatting by texting takes a lot of time, in most cases requires computer to have larger screen and typing keyboard and doesn't really capture issues as talking does.

  15. Receiving One Time Pass Code Calls on a PAID Skype US Phone Number

    I have had a PAID US Skype number for a few years. I use it mainly while I travel outside the U.S. One of the main reasons I got the number was to receive One Time VOICE Pass Codes from businesses. That ability to receive VOICE One Time Pass Codes stopped two weeks ago for some reason. It took 2 weeks of investigating on the business side to tell me the issue lies with SKYPE. I even added the 888 phone number the business uses to my SKYPE and Phone contact lists. Did not resolve the issue. I spent 30…

  17. 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.

  19. 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…

  20. Skype's subscription issue

    When making payments for Skype susbscription, the only option seen is saving customer's fnancial details so as to make auto-subscriptions. This is absolutely wrong. They give customers no other option and a type of incentive would have been given to customers whereby when they are on active auto-subscription, their unsed talktime should be made to roll over to the next subscription but this isn't the case. Skype subscription is so faltered. If nothing positive is done about this, I'll make this go viral on Twitter.
