  4. 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.

  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. 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…

  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. 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…
