  2. 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…

  4. 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…

  5. I find it is very expensive to use skype to phone from Canada to Sri lanka. I wish you charge much less than what you charge.

    Your charges discriminate against the poor who do not have internet in their houses cos charges for skype to phone are not reasonable. Where as rich people in poor countries can skype on line free if they have internet and skype registration. There is no justice in this regard.

  6. Skype Credit addition limit

    For Skype number renewal there is only payment method "Skype Credit" in India and there is limit of Rs 1770 max for skype credit addition. I had to pay for 3 skype numbers for a year & had to pay 1770 multiple times. The bank blocked my card for multiple payment for security reasons. Please increase the limit for skype credit addition or show credit card or paypal in payment method.

  7. South African +2711 and +2710 numbers are not classed the same as residential land lines. The additional code has been in place since 2008

    These numbers should be classed the same. They are only Landlines. Lost for words

    Telkom adds 010 area code. Telkom has introduced the 010 area code in Johannesburg. This is part of its implementation of the 10-digit dialling system, introduced by the Independent Communications Authority of SA (ICASA), says the fixed-line incumbent.29 Apr 2008

  16. Ability to select a monthly/period billing date for subscriptions.

    In order to ensure all payments are met on time and to assist the customer with their expenditure, the ability to setup a regular billing date, e.g. to coincide with salary payments, would be most beneficial.

  17. Skype Number address verification in Germany not working properly

    According to German law new and existing Skype numbers require a postal address verification. If the address is outdated one would need to update the address in the Skype/Microsoft database and THEN (re-)start the verification process. The link to change the address is there but, it is not working. Please fix this problem as soon as possible.

  18. Merging accounts or transferring subscriptions

    Whether I can merge my two (accidentally separate) accounts or not, I would at least like to be able to transfer my subscriptions from one account to another. At the very least, I would like to be able to keep the same Skype Number when repurchasing a subscription in the other account. Even cell phone companies can manage this!

  20. 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.
