  5. I want to register my phone number but my country (Japan) is not in the list. It blocks my calls.

    There is no place where I can reach customer service so I'm writing here.
    I pay for Skype credits to call phones but it doesn't work because I can't register my phone number.

    I want to register my phone number but my country (Japan) is not in the list. It blocks my calls.

  8. Toll free number

    It would be a great option to receive incoming calls and it charges my account if the caller can’t afford long distance fees. Like a toll free number. I would like this option very much for friends that can’t afford to call me from an old cell phone.

  9. Let us Delete / Link / Disconnet / Edit / Opt in / Opt Out for our Skype ID from our Microsoft Profile

    Tthe Microsoft procedure with creating new Skype ID is really bad.
    I had a already linked to my Microsoft's email a Skype ID and instead after submitting a new year license (a family pack) Microsoft decided to create a new (with a extremely silly name). Now this newly created will benefit of the perks which I pay for in the yearly charge. It is not fair.
    I needed that new ID deleted but not to delete my Microsoft profle (as it is using the same email address , and same my old SKype ID!). Also Microsoft should allow us to…

  10. Bigger subcriptions

    Skype should make larger subscriptions for calling to Bolivia. Like 400 minutes to mobile phones.

  11. Adding more minutes to the subscription when users run out of minutes during subscription time

    Can you guys please allow users to be able to add more minutes to their subscription when they run out of minutes during subscription time. The idea is to allow the users to add more minutes instead of waiting until the new subscription cycle starts.

  12. Could you please restore the function "Launch Skype in the Background"?

    Could you please restore the function "Launch Skype in the Background"? Skype has been my office phone for many years. I like to launch Skype when I launch Windows -- but I want it to launch into the System Tray, not immediately open a new window.

    Skype worked this way for ages, but 2 updates ago it stopped doing so. I still have the setting set to do this, but it does not.

  14. THIS IS A COMPALINT

    THIS IS A COMPLAINT: After being a client for 10 years with Skype for Hong Kong Unlimted, I switched on 19 May 2020 to 400 minutes monthly plan under an annual subscription. The first month 400 minutes did not cover all the calls and I paid for the remianing minutes while the second month I had a 95 minutes credit remaining and only to find out the unused minutes will be forefaited with a new monthly cycle! This condition is NOT made known to me while I was suggested this plan by Skype. FOREFAITING REMAINING CREDIT MINUTES IS NOT FAIR…

  15. extra talk time

    Giving more minutes during the Covid-19 situation,
    I would like to suggest to Microsoft to give more minutes when user subscribed since people are not able to meet in person. They can talk via skype with their relatives if Microsoft could help to people.

  18. Payment Page

    I just wanted to add that your payment page needs an update as I had to make 4 transactions just to add required funds to renew my subscription from 1 month to 12 months. I need you guys should have option to enter custom amount as well. When you put the custom amount it should auto calculate if it is equal or higher the amount what we have entered and it should not accept lesser amount from the billed amount.

  19. Unlimited Europe Price Change Very Discouraging

    Recently Skype changed their Europe Unlimited Mobile and Landlines plan from £16.80 to nearly £30.

    This is supremely unfriendly to people who have been paying £16.80 for years. I am currently using a number I had purchased off skype for my business and had the subscription so people could call the landline number and have it divert to a mobile phone. We would also return missed calls using skype. It was a great way to keep track of calls.

    I am now stuck in a situation where if I would like to keep my business number I have been using…
