  5. don't charge another connection fee every new minute...

    Do not charge a connection fee for every minute a call is connected. That is a gratuitous and sneaky way to make more money that does not seem to be very obvious. In some cases, this triples the cost of a call!
    A connection fee is to connect a call. Once it is connected, there should be no reason to continue charging this extra rate.

    I don't want to change the worldwide subscription i currently have, nor the other subscriptions i have allocated to other persons in skype manager. Because they're exactly what i need. So i'm asking would it be possible to assign the offer of office 365 to one of the subscriptions i already have?

  10. When activating Skype window immiediately type in "type message" field

    It's often the case I activate the window, type and it turns out there is no text written. If the last area to be typed in, was the message area go back with the cursor there.

  14. I had my account blocked and there is only one way to unblock it that is to use the first 6 digits of the credit card that was used last tim

    I had my account blocked and there is only one way to unblock that account. Which is to give the first 6 digits of that credit card.
    They are not even ready to give me the name on the credit card used.
    It is very restrictive. There is not an alternative way to unlock your account even if the world was under nuclear attack and unlocking this account would save the world. Skype will still require those damn six digits to unlock that account

  15. Hide message from a blocked contact in a group

    Other members are a pain in a group chat. Even I block them I still see their message or their profile photo in the group member list.

  18. On my android phone there is a stupid message where I want to put in the numebrs to call when I call a landline.

    On my android phone there is a stupid message where I want to put in the numebrs to call when I call a landline.
    I cannot get rid of this stupid message asking me to get Caller ID

    I do not want Caller ID
    but I cannot put in numbers to call because it blocks the screen.

    You need to get rid of this annoying advertising.

  20. keep track of input settings per different chats

    In mine line of work I have to type messages in different languages in different chats.
    I would be nice if each chat remembers the input method (keyboard selected) per chat (contact or group) chat so I dont have to switch back and forth and typing messages in wrong keyboard.
