  1. Refresh the subscription at 00.01h every 1st of the month. Secondly, return the Skype customer support telephone contact

    It works better for users if the calling minutes are activated on the exact time as the new month begins i.e 00.01h on the 1st of each month.

    Secondly, telephone contact makes contacting customer support faster and easier. Chatting by texting takes a lot of time, in most cases requires computer to have larger screen and typing keyboard and doesn't really capture issues as talking does.

  3. Receiving One Time Pass Code Calls on a PAID Skype US Phone Number

    I have had a PAID US Skype number for a few years. I use it mainly while I travel outside the U.S. One of the main reasons I got the number was to receive One Time VOICE Pass Codes from businesses. That ability to receive VOICE One Time Pass Codes stopped two weeks ago for some reason. It took 2 weeks of investigating on the business side to tell me the issue lies with SKYPE. I even added the 888 phone number the business uses to my SKYPE and Phone contact lists. Did not resolve the issue. I spent 30…

  5. I find it is very expensive to use skype to phone from Canada to Sri lanka. I wish you charge much less than what you charge.

    Your charges discriminate against the poor who do not have internet in their houses cos charges for skype to phone are not reasonable. Where as rich people in poor countries can skype on line free if they have internet and skype registration. There is no justice in this regard.

  6. Skype Credit addition limit

    For Skype number renewal there is only payment method "Skype Credit" in India and there is limit of Rs 1770 max for skype credit addition. I had to pay for 3 skype numbers for a year & had to pay 1770 multiple times. The bank blocked my card for multiple payment for security reasons. Please increase the limit for skype credit addition or show credit card or paypal in payment method.

  7. South African +2711 and +2710 numbers are not classed the same as residential land lines. The additional code has been in place since 2008

    These numbers should be classed the same. They are only Landlines. Lost for words

    Telkom adds 010 area code. Telkom has introduced the 010 area code in Johannesburg. This is part of its implementation of the 10-digit dialling system, introduced by the Independent Communications Authority of SA (ICASA), says the fixed-line incumbent.29 Apr 2008

  13. 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.

  16. 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?…

  17. 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.

  19. 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…
