  1. 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.

  6. I want to register my phone number but my country (Japan) is not in the list. It blocks my calls.

    There is no place where I can reach customer service so I'm writing here.
    I pay for Skype credits to call phones but it doesn't work because I can't register my phone number.

  8. THIS IS A COMPALINT

    THIS IS A COMPLAINT: After being a client for 10 years with Skype for Hong Kong Unlimted, I switched on 19 May 2020 to 400 minutes monthly plan under an annual subscription. The first month 400 minutes did not cover all the calls and I paid for the remianing minutes while the second month I had a 95 minutes credit remaining and only to find out the unused minutes will be forefaited with a new monthly cycle! This condition is NOT made known to me while I was suggested this plan by Skype. FOREFAITING REMAINING CREDIT MINUTES IS NOT FAIR…

  9. Unlimited Europe Price Change Very Discouraging

    Recently Skype changed their Europe Unlimited Mobile and Landlines plan from £16.80 to nearly £30.

    This is supremely unfriendly to people who have been paying £16.80 for years. I am currently using a number I had purchased off skype for my business and had the subscription so people could call the landline number and have it divert to a mobile phone. We would also return missed calls using skype. It was a great way to keep track of calls.

    I am now stuck in a situation where if I would like to keep my business number I have been using…

  10. Subscription

    The subscriptions in South Africa Are Limited, which is very unfair compared to the other countries that get far better offers than People in South Africa please add more subscriptions to South Africa such as Unlimited Mobile calls just like you have in the united states.

  11. I need the tel no. Has a message receive function

    I need the tel no. Has a message receive function because nowadays banks, etc companies need to send ppl the verify codes for identity checking.

    If it can do this, I will consider to have a number in the future.
    Please let me know.

  14. Skype Number/Calling subscription renewal - India

    I have been subscribed to these 2 services for about 3-4 years now and until last Jan 2020 everything was running smooth. My card was expired in the payment options so I had to add new one, and I did and now I cannot renew my skype number subscription it says I have to do it only Skype Credit not through card. Skype Credit charges more plus it will only allow to charge 1770/- in single charge, where as my subscription is more than 2882/- , this means I have to do multiple credit recharges and multiple taxes. But to…

  15. Skype meeting entertainment

    I run a nationwide company that provides entertainment for events: caricature artists, magicians, etc'. In the wake of the COVID crisis some of our clients have held Skype meetings and asked us to provide remote entertainment via Skype. I'm wondering who I might speak to at Skype about offering this kind of service THROUGH Skype. There is high demand for this right now, if we can put our options in front of clients hosting Zoom events, but there won't be high demand for it once the crisis passes, so time is of the essence. Let me know, please.

  16. Conference call to a landline for elderly people in corona-time

    Is it possible to restore the function of calling to a landline during conference calls? My father is currently in a nursing home and my mother, brother, sister and I would like to have a conference call because my father sometimes has too little for one day on his one single person call. Because my mother is already elderly and panic about the corona virus, she does not want us to use a shared telephone. This is because the nursing staff only has time to contact one of us by telephone once a day. Unfortunately my father is not able…

  17. WEB Page Button to Retry an online payment

    Guys. I did not make a payment for my Italian Subscription yesterday but I got online and did it with your online help.
    What would be really do was if you had a button on the WEB page that said "Try Payment Again NOW". That way I could do it easily.
    OK. Thanks.

  18. Open skype while in COVID-19, then older people can talk with family. And maybe they will stay if they like it.

    Op dit moment zitten veel oudere vast in een verzorgingshuis zonder enige vorm van contact met hun familie (man, vrouw, kinderen of kleinkinderen).
    Indien jullie skype openen zullen zij weer contact kunnen leggen, en als het ze bevalt zullen ze misschien wel blijven.

    Indien dit een mogelijk is zal ik mij inzetten om ervoor te zorgen dat bv een mediamarkt of coolblue of andere firma zal kunnen gaan voorzien in apparatuur.

    Met vriendelijke groeten,
    Joost Nooijen

  20. Custom Ringtones is a must feature, for using paid phone number on Skype. For business, it is professional in my opinion.

    For a paid service, this should be an option as more and more people are using these phone numbers for business. Makes it embarrassing to receive a skype call in the middle of a meeting or during business events.
