  1. Buy gift right from the Skype app

    I tend to purchase a lot of small gifts 9Skype credits) to my loved ones. It is such a hassle to do so. I wish I could do it right inside the app without going to other URLs. Just click on contact and choose the options.

  2. Why limit the worldwide to landlines in the EU??

    I have a worldwide sunscription and is really useless; it is limited to landlines for countries in the EU. Unles this is changed (no one has landlines anymore), will stop subscription as it serves no purpose)

  3. The process for German address verification is being handled incompetently

    This is a complaint.

    The process by which you are handling the German "address verification" is utterly unacceptable, and incompetent. You sent one email three months in advance, stating I should have received a paper letter in 2 - 4 days.

    The email was not seen by me, and the paper email never arrived.

    There was no further contact from you in any way - until I received an email stating the business number was canceled and irrevocably lost to me. This was my business number which was on all business correspondence, business cards, clients lists, etc.

    Your support personnel…

    I initially had CC configured for all payments. My CC expired and Skype never allowed me to updated my CC details or add new payment details. So, I was left with only option to make sure funds are available in my Skype credit for my subscription payments.

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 If the address is outdated one would need to update the address in the Skype/Microsoft database and THEN (re-)start the verification process.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

  7. 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. Ethiopia

    Additional payment options for Ethiopian customers. The payments options listed under Ethiopia aren't really available here. Someone would have to go to the US and other countries to have credit cards since we don't have those here and our debit cards can only pay for local transactions. Maybe a system can be created where we can deposit the money to a Skype agent here and that can be used to purchase Skype paid features without having to use credit cards or other payments methods.

  18. 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…

  19. 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.

  20. Instead of ending a call when i run out of subscription minutes but have a second subscription allow the call to carry on

    When a subscription runs out in the middle of a call don't cut off the call but where the user has a second subscription start using those minutes, it's not great having the 60 free minutes that when they end so does the call.
