    No solutions whatsoever, $20 less in my account, cannot make the important phone call, 3+ hours with support with no resolutions. I am very angry. I want a refund and I am looking into alternative apps. FIX your program. @SkypeSupport @Skype #ScamAlert #badservice 3/3

  • jcmanning_sp J.C. Manning (@jcmanning_sp) reported

    @Skype @SkypeSupport Your service sucks. I enter Skype after some months, purchase $10 of credit. Then it asks me to confirm my identity and change my password TWICE, which I do. I try to call someone and my account gets locked. Important call btw. After 2 hours with support 1/3

  • wangubaagu 信道 (しんどう)⁷ (@wangubaagu) reported

    @Skype So how many hours do I have to wait for you to send me my login code? Thank God it's not an important conference. Skype is not to be trusted, obviously.

  • ramsquiat RAMSQUIAT (@ramsquiat) reported

    @Skype is charging me $3.49 over and over again for a service I’m not able to use through @Apple subscriptions. Everytime I try to cancel they charge me again. Please fix this.

  • Boriga6 David Pitcher (@Boriga6) reported

    @Bangkok__Mike @Skype I have used Yolla, reliable but not as cheap as Skype. My default if I have a problem is to use 00X prefix from AIS my provider. 003, 007, 008 etc I search to see which is the cheapest. I believe all networks have a prefix internet call option.

  • mikeofkorea Mike Raymond (@mikeofkorea) reported

    No idea why, but all my contacts on @Skype disappeared. How on earth?? I need a snowplow service, but I never memorized that couple's number. What a bother. Once a year number, you know. Skype is sometimes more trouble than it's worth.
