  1. Skype Subscription plans

    Many of us use skype to communicate with our families across the globe. Now, more than ever before, we need more support to communicate and connect to our loved ones. I specifically require unlimited minutes to speak to my mother in a foreign country.

    I have seen a post requesting unlimited subscription minutes and this would be THE most compassionate position for skype to embody.

    However if that is not guaranteed, perhaps we can get unlimited calls to 4-5 numbers globally so we can connect with our immediate loved ones and family members?

    We need this soon please!

  4. Very little subscription options for international call

    very little subscription options for international call.. and once subscription ran over it started charging with higher rate and extra for every connection .. so end up paying almost 2 cents for every call after 800 subscription ran over..

    It will be better if you can have more flexibility for creating subscription based on individual usage.. of allow adhoc top up in middle of month

  5. 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

  7. Bring back custom voicemail at least for people who are PAYING for a Skype phone number. Skype's canned message is unprofessional.

    If I am paying for a Skype number, I should be able to customize my voicemail message. The technology exists as I had a custom message when I first purchased my number. The canned message is terrible and diminishes my professionalism.

  8. Skype number SMS

    Skype number should be able to send MMS messages with photos and also the number should be able to be used for verification codes! It cannot do either of these now and that's a major disadvantage.

  9. Include Australia as a country that can send Caller ID -

    I have purchased a Skype number but when I call people in Australia it doesn't allow me to send my caller ID. For what ever reason Australia isn't included in the countries that accept sending caller IDs. Can Skype please update this so Australia can send caller ID.

  11. Pay anytime.

    We should have the option to add subscription time without waiting until expiry. The option to pay anytime can better help manage budgets and other allocations

  12. Confusing information about subscriptions

    As for subscription to call uk says landlines and mobiles yet vodaphone a large carrier in the uk is not covered.. there should be clear indication on which carriers are covered.. I purchased twice different subscriptions and had to spend time getting credits, even agent was confused.. which you should do more training to cover these issues. I should not be the one educating your agents.

  13. Allow unused credits to roll over and accrue! Why would unused credits expire? We are buying them after all as part of our subscription

    If Skype credits are included with an Office 365 Subscription, at the rate of 60 credits per month, then we become owners of a product we paid for. If I add funds to my Starbucks card, Starbucks does not "expire" my funds if I don't use them by a certain date. That would be theft and fraud. This is no different. If I purchase an Office 365 subscription and then go a full month without using any of my Office products, what does Microsoft do? They bill me for another month, which includes another 60 minutes. I should therefore have…

  14. Australian skype number is not covered by caller ID

    When we call someone from our skype, it will show the private number on other's screen and most people are not receiving the call due to the same reason. So can you please prioritise and help to set Australian skype number as a caller ID.

  18. Charge the correct rate for calls to land lines

    Skype advertises a cost of €0.03 per minute to call land lines in Ireland. However, it is faulty, and can mis-identify land line numbers as premium rate numbers.

    E.g. land line number: +353 (0)1 5141234

    Skype will mis-identify this as a premium-rate number that starts with the "1514" prefix, and charge a rate of €0.34 per minute. Despite premium rate numbers not being contactable from outside the country.

    I would suggest fixing number identification in Skype so it charges the prices advertised. The above Skype bug has costed me all my credit.
