  1. label about the balance

    1 - it’s an unpleasant experience to see the “no money” label next to my name
    2 - if I need this option only when I call the phone, why I see it in another context of using?

    My suggestion is to move the balance to the calls tab, for example: https://www.figma.com/file/kKF6mBc5a0FRFIaa52Dxhh/Skype-balance

  2. Credit Support for Iranian Students

    Hi,

    I have a request and wanted to share an idea with you about that. You may have heard from the news that due to the protests, the Internet in Iran has been shut down for about more than 48 hours and it is not clear at all whether the government is willing to allow Iranians to use the internet again.

    https://edition.cnn.com/2019/11/18/middleeast/iran-protests-explained-intl/index.html

    Because of that, many Iranian students studying abroad cannot reach their loved ones in any way. Most of us have been using the Skype trial credit to contact our families (via their mobile or landline phones), however, I…

  5. Looking at the messages, can't find the day and month of the message. It just evaporated. The old Skype from 2003 had the date stamp.

  12. Colour Options

    Please put a wider variety of colour choices for the text boxes in ‘Appearances’, there’s a very limited selection and they get a little boring after a while. Thank you!

  13. Input user name and password automatically on private computer

    When I open Skype, I have to sign in each time or almost each time. It didn't use to be that way. I would like the option of signing in automatically on a private (my) computer when Skype is loaded.

  14. TEXT

    It needs to be possible to use a SKYPE UK phone number to send texts to USA. Voice calls work very well but need texting ability.

  15. monthly statement

    Bring back (to all countries) monthly statements/invoices!

    The helpfiles falsely claim there's a download option for
    your monthly statement.

    There is none (not for me, and the restrictions
    that the help files talk about, only mention VAT invoices
    are restricted to certain countries, but no mention that
    there's no downloadable - or even viewable - full monthly
    statement - without VAT - at all...)

    Support is completely unhelpful.

    And dismissive/in denial when I contact and just keep repeating
    that it's there, after the 5th of the following month, when I
    clearly tell them it is isn't there, not for previous…

  19. editing skype name and unlink with microsoft and delete old skype account

    skype must give and option to edit skype name any time and change it because its not easy to creat a new account and delete the old one. So now Name editing authority must be authorized to the customer.

    and unlink skype account with microsoft account option must be given to old skype accounts that they could delete old skype account and able to use a new with orignal emial account
