  • andrejonker Andre 🐦 (@andrejonker) reported

    I have been battling to get my paid for @Skype number fixed for so long, it is almost time for a renewal. @SkypeSupport, refusing to refund me for failing to deliver the service I paid for, because “it was bought and paid for more than 90 days ago”, violates my statutory rights.

    @Skype Unable to use Skype on the desktop app, but ok on the web and mobile version. The desktop app doesn't show any updated chats and it's on perpetual refreshing mode for every chat. Help? It happened suddenly since yesterday while I was using it.

  • JoJo73278562 JoJo (@JoJo73278562) reported

    @Skype I’ve never experienced such a painfully awful live chat with your ‘customer service’ team. 40 mins of mostly waiting for replies, all of which were useless and unhelpful. In the end I had to just give up. Thanks for wasting my time #customerservice #thanksfornothing

  • kevintweeting 𝙠𝙚𝙫𝙞𝙣 (@kevintweeting) reported

    @SkypeSupport @Skype also noticed I'm unable to quit the app, unless I force quit it on my Macbook Air. I even tried deleting the app and reinstalling it again, but the same issue arises. Help? Thanks.

  • DanGleeballsYT Dan Gleeballs Scambaiter (@DanGleeballsYT) reported

    @Skype loving the new colour scheme!! I call UK targeting scammers using your service. I've spent a fortune of my own money with line rental & number costs. Can you sort me out with unlimited UK landline & mobile calls for the future please? My youtube Dan Gleeballs Scambaiter TY

  • Lorddami Damoooo (@Lorddami) reported

    Since @WhatsApp is down.... let me call my SO on @Skype. 🤔 How to let her know to login though.... that's the dilemma.

  • danielrock Daniel Rock (@danielrock) reported

    Hey @replyall here’s an interesting case for super tech support: Microsoft’s fraud management for @Skype appears to be fully automated. This makes account recovery exceedingly difficult. I wonder to what extent this is a strategic choice. Please help @danielascur!

  • dawn_quaker Dawn Quaker (@dawn_quaker) reported

    fault. Sumeet Shah abused me via @Skype in May or June of 2017 after abusing me in the 5 to 6 months prior; his abuse of me including calling me, "kiddo," after I invited him to lunch when working at a restaurant that closed down in the West Village; I enjoyed the lunch and

  • GalaxyPuppet GalaxyPuppet (@GalaxyPuppet) reported

    @discord BTW, if you DO want the file that breaks your platform, let me know. It's a shame that you're so far ahead of @Skype with communities, as their customer service is streets ahead of yours

  • laysauchoa laysa 🐍 (@laysauchoa) reported

    @Skype Canceling the subscription does not solve my issue. I still wanna to be able to call them, is there any service that could be recommended?

  • CodersaurusX Codersaurus X (@CodersaurusX) reported

  • WilfSplodNokit Richie (@WilfSplodNokit) reported

    @JustinMac_84 Are you another one who had their @Skype broken by that stupid company who doesn't understand access for screen reader users?

  • laysauchoa laysa 🐍 (@laysauchoa) reported

    @Skype This happens only with Brazilian numbers (mobile). I have tried with @Skype assistant and he had the same issues. So it is reproducible.

  • BarnesEmma0893 Emma Barnes (@BarnesEmma0893) reported

    @HISouthmpton my @Skype isnt working help

  • JustinMac_84 Justin Macleod (@JustinMac_84) reported

    @WilfSplodNokit @Angua3Carrot @Skype I submitted feedback and they offered me an article to check. Trouble-shooting consisted of check internet connection, check you're signed in, check notification settings, restart skype. 🙄I've done all that, keyboard navigation definitely broken.

  • WilfSplodNokit Richie (@WilfSplodNokit) reported

    @JustinMac_84 I've just had to check for a latest version because my @Skype still seems to be accessible. I'm not having an issue but have heard a few people say they're struggling with keyboard navigation. I assume you've tried reloading both Skype and the screen reader?
