  1. The Jordan subscription is limited to 200 minutes per month, which is too few. I would prefer to purchase an unlimited package.

    The calls to Jordan subscription is limited to a maximum of 200 minutes per month, which is too few. Ideally there would be an unlimited option, or even a 600 minutes per month option would be an improvement.

    los clientes necesitamos planes de llamadas con minutos ilimitados a móviles y fijos por un precio coherente y no desorbitado como actualmente tenéis.

  3. Add Ukraine mobile calls to Office 365 subscription

    It's very misleading to say that Office 365 subscription includes "60 mins of world calls" and then have a limited set of countries as "the World".

  6. Skype phone numbers should be clearly communicated as "Non-refundable", "Non-verifiable", and "Non-2FA compatible"

    It is a really terrible business practice to not clearly communicate in the checkout process that some key details someone might expect from a regular phone number are not available through a skype number. They cannot be verified and thus, cannot be used for 2-factor authentication. However, I believe any consumer would assume this is possible when they see that they can send and receive sms, as consumers, including me, don't know that there are numbers that can send and receive sms, but somehow not work for 2FA. You should also clearly state in the checkout process that skype numbers…

  8. abonnement

    Hello,
    It would be good if we could choose to use the Office 365 minutes instead of a paid subscription.
    Thank you.

  10. Local Greek Number [landline/mobile]

    It would be great if Skype offered local Greek phone numbers (which it currently doesn't). If it was possible to have both landline numbers and mobile phone numbers, that would indeed be amazing. Cheers!

  11. 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.

  12. Please Provide the feature for users to be able to transfer Skype subscriptions or Skype Numbers to another Skype account.

    Since people using multiple accounts or may need to access the Skype number with another account it's needed to transfer the purchased skype number into another account. it's also the possibility of purchasing a subscription for calling a specific country and after a while, you may not need it at all. so it's possible to transfer it to some else to use the subscription benefits.

  13. Skype Numbers for Canada

    Canadians have waited long enough for Skype to offer them Canadian Skype Numbers. During the Covid-19 pandemic, this product would be more useful than ever.

  15. 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.

  16. Phone Number Checker (Landline, Mobile, VOIP) in / out of active subscription

    Please consider creating a function/facility/extension that when given a phone number, checks to see if the number is a Landline, Mobile, VOIP or other,.
    Also, that checks to see if the number is covered under an active subscription for the current Skype account.

    Thank you,

    L-Parliament

  17. Skype Subscription priorities

    I think that Microsoft should rethink the way the system prioritises calls on accounts with more than one Skype subscription.
    I live outside of the US, but I have family in the US. At the same time, my wife and I travel.
    I have a Office 365 subscription that includes 60 minues a month to make calls anywhere in the world. I am adding a subscription to give me unlimited minutes to the US (so I can talk to my family).
    I have been told that the system was recently updated in such a way that a call that is…

  19. Caller ID for More Countries

    Please add Caller ID to more countries.

    In my case, I would like to have this for my South Korean Skype number.
    If you look through the suggestions, you will see a great demand for this. It's just spread out in requests for different individual countries.

  20. Receive SMS / Text Messages to purchased Skype numbers unsolicited and from other non-Skype service users such as bank verification codes.

    Dear Skype,

    I’ve been a longtime paying Skype customer and have been waiting for 1 important feature - the ability to receive SMS messages from any phone, for example banks when they send verification codes. I can send SMS messages and the party can respond, but Skype does not allow receipt of SMS messages unsolicited. I’ve been waiting long for this feature. I know many others have as well. I must inform you that if Skype won’t implement this feature in the next 30 days, I’m taking my business and monthly and annual fees - over the years have been…
