  1. 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

  2. 1 Skype Subscription for both incoming and outgoing calls

    1 Skype Subscription for both incoming and outgoing calls. It is confusing having to get 2 subscriptions and it could be so much easier to create 1 that is bundled.

    case number too: 1487540963

  3. Bring back the old subscriptions/calling plans available -- the current ones are very expensive!

    Bring back the old subscriptions/calling plans!! -- the current ones are very expensive! Previous plan was "Skype Premium 300 mins - 12 months" for $42.339 AUD. I could call worldwide using that; and I used this for years.

  6. Caller identification using my Skype Number for Germany

    I bought a German Number but can't set it up as Skype Caller ID. So I always have to tell my customers that I call not to call back the number they see in their diplay (if at all). Are their plans to enable this feature for Germany? Or can you set it up for my account somehow manually?

  8. 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. Activer de nouveau l'abonnement Bulgarie- Téléphones fixes et mobiles appels illimités

    Avant il y avait un abonnement Bulgarie- Téléphones fixes et mobiles appels illimités. Pourquoi cette option a été enlevé. Pourtant vers d'autre pays il y en a un abonnement pareil.
    Pourriez vous la remettre.

  12. Skype number should have the feature to receive security codes, confirmation codes or OTPs.

    Skype number should have the feature to receive security codes, confirmation codes or OTPs. I have a US brokerage account and it requires a US phone number for verification and since I cannot receive security codes on my skype number, I have look for some other solutions

  13. Refund ignored

    I have purchased or subscribed to this promo- World unlimited calls last September 21, 2019. The purchase was made through Apple.

    I tried to use this subscription but it never works for me. So I reported this issue to Skype support and I requested for refund. The person from skype support then referred me to Apple. Immediately, I logged a report to Apple and got feedback that my purchase does not meet condition for a refund.

    What a respond! I could not simply get a refund from a skype subscription that I have not used at all.

    What a deceiving…

  17. Skype Unlimited World Name is Misleading

    The Skype Unlimited World name is misleading because it doesn't include all countries in the "world."

    I just redeemed 6,400 Microsoft Rewards points for a 3-Month Skype Unlimited World Voucher. I then redeemed the voucher in my Skype profile and tried to make a call. I intended to use this for calling to Tanzania (I am in the US), but when I tried to call, I was told that Tanzania wasn't part of the Skype World Unlimited service and I would have to pay to call to Tanzania. Tanzania is in this "world," isn't it? Because Tanzania isn't included, I…

  18. I can not use call forwarding as Skype does not have a drop down box for my area.

    I live on Norfolk Island which has been administered by Australia since 2016. It has a different country code of +6723 because it was previously semi governed. However, Norfolk Island is always overlooked. It is only2G here so I do not have internet while I am away from my house. Because skype does not have a drop down box for Norfolk Island, I can not call forward my calls to my mobile for my business which makes it very difficult for me and is a big hardship. I may even have to move to the mainland if I can''t get…
