  3. Skype Online Number Availability in Israel

    To Whom It May Concern at Skype Support,

    I’m a extreme fan of Skype Online numbers. I’ve been using my Skype Online Number in the United States for almost 10 years now. Recently, I started to travel to Israel extensively. I opened up a bank account in Israel and it requires for me to have an Israeli mobile number on a permanent basis.

    Since it’s a hassle to keep paying for my SIM card in Israel when I’m not there for a long time, is there any news whether Skype will be rolling out a Skype Online number in Israel?…

  4. Remove your incompetent payment partners overseas for the sake of travelers

    your payment partner, pc home, in taiwan, just sucks. i cannot pay without providing my passport copy, my address and phone number, and all other compromising personal information. all this for adding credits? can you make it any more inconvenient? i'm not even sure if you are aware what is happening, but this really needs to be rectified. i will have to seek alternatives in the mean while as skype is literally unusable due to your choice of partners.

  6. 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.

  7. A customised solution for an anonymous helpline

    I volunteer for an NGO (a suicide prevention helpline) in India. We were exploring options for having one single phone number which can be used for multiple incoming calls on multiple devices. So if we have one caller who’s being answered on one device, the next call on the same number must go on the second device. One important feature that we want is that the volunteers answering the incoming calls should not be able to see the phone numbers of the callers. We want to provide an anonymous service, so we don’t want the volunteers to see the caller…

  8. Warning before credit finishes rather than cutting the call once skype credit finishes

    Rather than dropping a call once skype credit finishes during a call. Either issue a 5 minute warning (maybe turn the skype app red color or a small deep noise) or automatically add credit with the credit card in the system (prior approval given) or switch to free skype.

  10. 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

  14. Need log in on multiple devices at same time and Voice mail option for Skype number on Cell phones done

    I wanted to use Skype number for business on my phone but it didn't give me the option for Voice mail if I'm unable to attend also it restricts multiple logins hence if I'm working on my desktop at the office I have to ensure I have logged out from my home laptop or Cellphone App.

  15. All USD amounts calculated and displayed to the accuracy of USD 0.1¢

       I suggest that all USD amounts be calculated and displayed to the accuracy of a mil (USD 0.001 or $0.001 or 0.1¢). Products like SMS and non-subscription calls are listed to the mil, but the item billing is to the next higher cent (USD 0.010 or $0.010 or 1.0¢). For example, an SMS is 11.2¢, but the item billing is 12.0¢.

  17. 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.

  20. Hidden Costs

    Apparently the system detected that the call is on the country Netherlands.
    As verified on your subscription, the covered services for it was for landline only and not for mobile. But when making the call / entering the phone number it's mentioned on skype : COVERED BY SUBSCRIPTION

    It should display the REAL cost.

    A member of skype told me

    The reason why this happened is because the system detected that the number is from the country Netherlands. For the actual information if it's mobile or not, it'll be verified once the call pushed through.
    My opinion is that it's…
