  1. 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…

  2. customer service improvements.

    Rackiing up false extras for ridiculous charges has given Skype a bad name. Why should users pay for Skype's errors

  3. 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.

  4. 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…

  6. Add new feature

    I think Skype needs to start international mobile recharge/top-up feature. I hope after adding this feature Skype become more popular.

  9. Non subscription charges on 1800, 13xxxx, 1300 numbers

    I can pick up my mobile phone and dial 1800, 13xxxx and 1300 numbers for free or at the cost of a local phone call and certainly not timed.

    Skype's rates are not competitive and it is at risk of dying with the dinosaurs if it does not address this issue.

    As I can now use Microsoft's Your Phone app on Windows 10 and Your Phone app on Android, I'm about to cancel all of my Skype and addon subscriptions.

    Please address within the next month so I can justify and retain my Skype subscriptions going forward.

  10. Skype Number/Calling subscription renewal - India

    I have been subscribed to these 2 services for about 3-4 years now and until last Jan 2020 everything was running smooth. My card was expired in the payment options so I had to add new one, and I did and now I cannot renew my skype number subscription it says I have to do it only Skype Credit not through card. Skype Credit charges more plus it will only allow to charge 1770/- in single charge, where as my subscription is more than 2882/- , this means I have to do multiple credit recharges and multiple taxes. But to…

  11. Skype meeting entertainment

    I run a nationwide company that provides entertainment for events: caricature artists, magicians, etc'. In the wake of the COVID crisis some of our clients have held Skype meetings and asked us to provide remote entertainment via Skype. I'm wondering who I might speak to at Skype about offering this kind of service THROUGH Skype. There is high demand for this right now, if we can put our options in front of clients hosting Zoom events, but there won't be high demand for it once the crisis passes, so time is of the essence. Let me know, please.

  12. Skype phone new plan

    Hello,

    I would like to see my "current paid plan and minutes available" until the last day it is valid. I do not like the fact to be charged ahead of time (3 days) specially when the re-charge feature is not enabled on my profile.
    Also, a longer period of validity for minutes paid would be much more appreciated and allow more customers. 30days from purchase date it is not enough for some people.

  14. Reimbursement for lost access to paid services!!!

    I just spent two hours on chat to finally fix the problem of not being able to log in and not being able to find the right help articles that could fix that problem.... I was not able to access chat for the last several weeks and so I lost a month and a half of paid services, which I was told I cannot receive reimbursement for?! Extremely bad service. I have now discovered Zoom and there are other providers, so I may just have to leave Skype if this is true! Very sad that this would be the way…

  17. Ethiopia

    Additional payment options for Ethiopian customers. The payments options listed under Ethiopia aren't really available here. Someone would have to go to the US and other countries to have credit cards since we don't have those here and our debit cards can only pay for local transactions. Maybe a system can be created where we can deposit the money to a Skype agent here and that can be used to purchase Skype paid features without having to use credit cards or other payments methods.

  18. Conference call to a landline for elderly people in corona-time

    Is it possible to restore the function of calling to a landline during conference calls? My father is currently in a nursing home and my mother, brother, sister and I would like to have a conference call because my father sometimes has too little for one day on his one single person call. Because my mother is already elderly and panic about the corona virus, she does not want us to use a shared telephone. This is because the nursing staff only has time to contact one of us by telephone once a day. Unfortunately my father is not able…

  19. WEB Page Button to Retry an online payment

    Guys. I did not make a payment for my Italian Subscription yesterday but I got online and did it with your online help.
    What would be really do was if you had a button on the WEB page that said "Try Payment Again NOW". That way I could do it easily.
    OK. Thanks.

  20. Instead of ending a call when i run out of subscription minutes but have a second subscription allow the call to carry on

    When a subscription runs out in the middle of a call don't cut off the call but where the user has a second subscription start using those minutes, it's not great having the 60 free minutes that when they end so does the call.
