    Down for some chat? Skype : live:jongchanhan8

  • jeffharrin13 this is a homebrew profile now (@jeffharrin13) reported

    Hearing about all the people in the hospital and all those that have died is sad. But I'm kind of embarrassed too. We just had to stay home and wear a piece of cloth on our face to help each other. And that was somehow too much. In the age of Skype, snapchat and zoom no less.

  • HeinWendy Dr Wendy Hein (@HeinWendy) reported

    Hi @WhatsApp I'm pulling my hair out. For some reason my unmute button on my android doesn't work. My mic is connected and works on Skype. I've already reinstalled the app. Nothing works. HELP! it's taken me all morning to fix...

  • costanzo740 joe costanzo (@costanzo740) reported

    @LydiaCornell The closer we get to Christmas I think we will see more depressed people because of social distancing not having as big a gathering as past years, but there is Skype Zoom and phone calls to help still got to see no person feels empty, 2021 a vaccine means a new start at life

  • NavyFederal Navy Federal (@NavyFederal) reported

    @king__will__ You'll need to give us a call to complete the verification process. A VoIP service, such as Skype, should allow outbound calls to the U.S. You may want to look into other VoIP options, as well. ~SN

    i have blurred background on skype and my hair looks like mallorys from outpost help

  • cyanebooks cyanebooks (@cyanebooks) reported

    today in skype: help, why are they saying

  • ConnorMac5 Connor Mac (@ConnorMac5) reported

    @goofygal1171 How much is a small Skype chat? As a fellow Nebraskan I would love the money to go the iowa windstorm to help with relief effort if it’s still needed? :)

  • Timberesford1 Tim Beresford (@Timberesford1) reported

    @dstaples IMO, 3 biggest errors in the decade of darkness: 1. Failed draft of 2007. Oil had 3 1st rd picks, wasted all 3. 2. Drafting Yakupov in 2012, in a year full of D(Reilly, Dumba, Trouba, Lindholm, Murray), and Oil already with RNH, Hall, Eberle. 3. Firing Ralph Krueger by Skype.

  • mancunianmedic david oliver (@mancunianmedic) reported

    every time i see Hugh Pym now i remember my disastrous attempts to do skype interviews with him in the first pandemic wave. My download speed at home is c 3MB and upload 0.8. It was always gonna go horribly wrong and put me off any more down the line TV on my own kit DOH!

  • HeatCalculation Heat-Engineer.Com (@HeatCalculation) reported

    @ChiefExecCCC Have to agree but even their Skype is not performing correctly. Terrible issues with screen or file sharing being intermittent. Come on @Skype we deserve better.

  • PatrickEMills Patrick Mills (@PatrickEMills) reported

    'We spoke a couple of times via Skype, then he changed his mind - possibly as his anger died down, which happens with sharing sometimes.' It's possible the other St P's survivor may go public, but doubt it. I'm one of a few DLS survivors who want justice and won't forget3/3

  • jackwshepherd Jack Shepherd (@jackwshepherd) reported

    I remember when my last firm first rolled out Skype. My first reaction was: “I don’t like people being able to see when I’m ‘away’ and not working” Such a stupid reaction. As if people cared more about my Skype status than the hours I was recording

  • SingleMacguffin Brett Nolan (@SingleMacguffin) reported

    @CitiAustralia What's going on with your call centre today? I've called eleven times and keep getting disconnected, typically because they can't hear me or I can't hear them. I've tried via mobile, Skype and Zoom Phone. Worst customer service of any bank in Australia, by far.

  • Cashmas77965016 cashmaster Wayne (@Cashmas77965016) reported

    Debt contracts sent to beurea..PayPal sorted due to a ******** having his fix then trying claim refund. 2 skype session and a heakthy looking cashapp. Productive day so far.

  • BarclaysUKHelp Barclays UK Help (@BarclaysUKHelp) reported

    @JoePerfMinds Thanks for getting in touch, I'm very sorry to hear about your call wait times. May I ask if you have access to Skype? You can call us on 0044800 111 777 (24/7) using that service, and it won't cost anything as the call will be made via an internet connection. Steven

  • JonMathias8 Jon Mathias (@JonMathias8) reported

    @TiredTeacher0 Oh FFS. I'm in the Civil Service and I've been working from home since March, peering at a crappy laptop screen, hours on Skype, trying to manage and support people remotely. I really miss the office. It's not a ******* "luxury".

  • DariaGoo Amber Massimino (@DariaGoo) reported

    @SkypeSupport How do I get in touch with someone? I'm getting charged for things I have no knowledge of! Skype makes it hard to contact their customer service. Very disappointing. 😡

  • me_not_animal Me Might be Animal! (@me_not_animal) reported

    @morpethm_245 It’s awful, but we’ve had to make the same call here. It’s down to the fact we couldn’t live with ourselves if we passed something on 😢 Hopefully you can Skype/zoom/FaceTime mambo Christmas Day :)

  • Hairyloon Grumpy Old Man (@Hairyloon) reported

    @Life_Disrupted Aren't the hearings conducted over Skype at the moment? In which case, it ought not be a great problem for them to "Be available".

  • CosiDoerfel Cosi Doerfel Hill #InLimbo #TimesUp #MeToo #FBPE (@CosiDoerfel) reported

    @vmlemon Zoom, Meet, Teams, Skype, WebEx, WhatsApp, Messenger, Duo.... Making a video and sending it via email.... Are all options. Seriously, What's the ludditism? I'm the dinosaur here and don't see a problem!

  • _Rbot_ Rooben.avi (@_Rbot_) reported

    Im in a skype call called actual Mishas please help me

  • bjroberts413 Bob (@bjroberts413) reported

    @jimcramer Jim what’s the most for zoom? What keeps ring central or whatever other Skype type video calling service from taking over?

  • DivineMaia Maia Divine (@DivineMaia) reported

    My stream is lagging Tonight so I won’t be broadcasting , but I’m free all night to #C2C and haven’t had any issues with Skype/Snapchat $100/20min, $250/hr

  • worthuelse 😷Worthülse😷 (@worthuelse) reported

    Ist Skype down?

  • WMarkvii wmarkVII (@WMarkvii) reported

    Anyone else having SMS receiving issues? Facebook ALSO won't send out one of those account verification texts, but MAYBE AT&T and Facebook have problems? Because Facebook sent a verification text to my Skype number.

  • cmouse1980 Charlie Mouse (she/ her) (@cmouse1980) reported

    @richardengland My boss played it down a work Skype call at me!! I might have cursed him.

  • prisme_cosmique 🍡 Prisme (@prisme_cosmique) reported

    the others either didn't care (which was really cool but also very rare), turned her down because she "couldn't understand" or were asking for her Skype so they could flirt with her and see her boobs like??? ***** I'm trying to talk about Ichigo's trauma get tf out

  • alpasasi hombre del saco (@alpasasi) reported

    @aerdam Oh you mean that, yes. I also cannot use my data when I'm on a cellular call. Skype offers a paid voip service where you can call any number in the world with just an internet connection and the recipient receives it as a normal call regardless whether they are online or not.

  • BUFFM0NA_BOT buff mona (@BUFFM0NA_BOT) reported
