  1. Unlimited calls to mobile phones to venezuela

    Venezuela is going through a very rough time, social, humanitarian, economic, electric power and political crisis, people outside the country cannot afford to pay hundreds of dollars when we also have to help our families to cover for their expenses due to what I previously mentioned, services provided by the state government are not reliable, landlines have become unpopular due to the phone company negligence and upkeep, my 80-year-old mother only relies on her cellphone, I can't afford your current rates to call her.

  4. Skype number transfer from personal to Skype manager account.

    Skype number transfer. I have a situation, when I need to transfer my skype number from my personal account to my Skype manager account due to lack of features like SIP in the personal account. But I found that it is possible only after 3 months of inactivity and after my number goes to sale again with no guarantee that someone can't buy it before me. Please make such kind of transfer possible! I don't want to lose my number!

  6. Automated invoice sending

    I need to submit my Skype invoices to my accountant.
    Right now I manually sign in, look up the invoice, download it and send it to my accountant. 12 times a year.
    You cam make this easier by providing automated invoice sending.
    Please consider this idea.

  7. The world mobile and landlines should be called differently

    The world mobile and landlines should be called differently as the name suggests all countries and both mobiles and landlines to all destinations. But it is not true.

    Thank you

  9. Hope that one who loses the recurring payment for a great service which meantime has expired can have that reinstated! The old good Premium!

    Was my fault again to have let expired that great Premium paid service. Skype previously reinstated it for me. Really hope that myracle could happen again. Old Premium's so great and convenient!

  11. payment/

    Some people are experiencing difficulties with buying skype credit, as the same credit card info used previously does not work any longer. It appears that Microsoft now requires one to delete their method of payment from their skype account and register this information with a Microsoft account. It would have been helpful to receive an e-mail from Microsoft indicating this new requirement.

  13. UWP App crashes with Oops! error when I try to call a phone number.

    ALL VERSIONS OF UWP on Desktop and Phone crash when trying to dial a phone number, receive a call to my Skype Number, or view history of Skype calls involving phone numbers. All Skype to Skype works fine. This all started after 01/26/19 and I've seen other users than myself complain. What did Skype change after that date? When will Support ask my for logs on my devices to fix this issue?

  14. why can't I have a Canadian Skype number

    I live in Canada but have a UK skype number so that anyone from the Uk can call me for the cost of a local call. I would also like to have a Canadian number that Canadian friends can call but skype doesn't offer Canadian numbers. Come on skype - I'll have to go to another suppier! My chat session ref is 1461951825.

  15. Wondering who is so "clever" do do force update to Skype 8, if it is still doesn't support synchronization with Outlook contacts!!!

    How should I make calls? Rewriting number from outlook each time? You should fire person, who came with idea to do force upgrade at this moment, when new product is still half-finished... Now I have to search for other product instead of Skype.

  16. Allow me to port my existing number to Skype

    Please allow me to port an existing phone number to Skype. Google Voice has this ability. Why not Skype?

  17. reinstate skype-to-phone calls of outlook contact

    One way or another allow your skype-to-phone subscription members to direct dial their outlook contacts.

    Either 1) allow skype to read outlook contacts so that we can one-click dial phone numbers from within skype (like skype used to do since pretty much version 1),
    or 2) allow access to skype from outlook so that we can right click dial via skype from within outlook

    Option 1) is preferable as one can then review calls in the skype history by contact name - And you already have the code from version 7 and before.

  18. Stop making credit inactive

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

  19. Stop charging full price for partially used minutes

    It is infuriating to have a 2 min and 2 second call be counted as a full 3 minute call. Why is it rounded up? This is Especially painful for subscriptions.

  20. Calls to Skype Number no longer show in history

    Calls to my Skype Number used to show up in my Skype history until after an update around November 2017. When somebody calls me now and I missed the call, there is absolutely no evidence that the call came in. Unless the person leaves me a voicemail. When I do answer the call and finish the call, there is absolutely no evidence the call ever took place. I reported this bug to a Microsoft Tier 3 escalation tech. He verified that it was indeed a bug and created a service request ticket. When I contacted him months later, he assured…
