  1. 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 If the address is outdated one would need to update the address in the Skype/Microsoft database and THEN (re-)start the verification process.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.

  2. 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!

  4. 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.

  5. Please DO NOT require auto-recharge on an initial skype credit purchase. This is manipulative sales!

  7. 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?…

  8. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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…

  12. 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.

  14. 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

  18. 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.

  19. 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¢.
