  1. Skype Number in multiple countries under 1 subscription

    An option for multiple (random) Caller ID's, as a paid subscription of course!
    The purpose being for those of us that need to contact clients all over the world we can at least appear to be more "local".
    Each time a (random) number is used it could stay assigned to the user for say 14 days (to allow the recipient to call back or message), and if we make repeated calls to the same country within the time period the 14 days resets and carries on.
    As an added bonus a user could choose to cycle to the next available…

  2. VPN

    VPN should show as "ACTIVE" from my call screen, or otherwise show the general location of my IP address, that way if the VPN happens to drop or the IP Address otherwise changes since the last call was made, I know and can take action accordingly.

  4. confirmation request before deleting a caller ID

    On the iOS app, the delete button is right next to the button to switch the caller ID. But .. the worse problem is, there is no request to confirm that you want to delete it. If I want to delete a conversation, I get asked, but if i accidently press or swipe on delete ... the caller ID is just gone ... That leaves me with the problem, that i cannot use my ID anymore before I flew back to the US. And .. it's also bad that it cannot be restored ... maybe a request to confirm would…

  5. Custom Calling Ringtone

    Hi, I'm very proud of skype and the way it outstands in the meetings market but there's an issue I would like to talk about. So I have been using skype ever since it was created and I have also been using the custom ringtone feature. But now it's gone and I get confused because I talk to a lot of people via skype but my family does so, so we never know whose computer is ringing. Thank you .

  8. Security protocols

    Please do not lock an account ever time a person is logging from a different country, some of us travel a lot and have Microsoft not as their first account, but one that holds special or old information, but not for everyday use. Why don’t you provide a phone call verification like some providers Apple to verify your new access on new equipment or location.

  19. make audio feed back on avatar

    It feels like we are constantly troubling shooting audio issues. mic or speakers not working. it would be nice if skype would always flash using a audio level a bright circle around the person that is speaking when in a call including myself so we would know right away if its us or them.

    thank you.
