    @vmbusiness @vmbusinesshelp Thanks for coming back to me. I ended up dusting off my @Skype account and calling business customer service so all sorted now.

  • mgoetzke Matthias Götzke (@mgoetzke) reported

    @Skype I could arrange that, but the issue is quite clear. Whenever a call comes in, keyboard focus is transferred from whatever I currently do to the 'accept/reject' dialog. That causes me to basically always inadvertently either taking a call or rejecting a call and should not be

    Hey @skype I need help. I have a subscription+number. Every time someone calls me the call drops immediately. Can you fix it? I've been going over your site trying to get support and I always end up in "Ask the community". I don't want to ask the communty. I pay and need support

  • _TShantelle TawannaShantelle (@_TShantelle) reported

    @LidsAssist There is an employment scam using your company logo & information. They contact people abt employment, conduct an interview via @Skype chat, then issue you a fake check using the Lids company information. They also send a contract stating benefits from the company.

    @Skype How can I change my Skype Name? I’ve been trying to do this since 10 years ago when I was still a High School student and I have a ridiculous name since then. I’ve never been able to use my account again because I’m ashamed with my acquaintances about this. Help!

  • SharonHoepker Sharon Hoepker (@SharonHoepker) reported

    And no one on your various teams can explain how this happened, no one seems to care @ATT that a serious error was made. I have COVID, am in isolation, need to communicate with my family. Thank goodness for @Skype and @WhatsApp!! They know how to treat customers, I can reach out.

  • speef40 Speef (@speef40) reported

    @Skype is there an issue this morning? Keep trying. To make a call and being told it is a weak connection. Have full coverage on 5g??

  • daxen818 Alver the Wanderer (@daxen818) reported

    @Skype your famous noise when a call connects. Your service is being utilized to scam people. Being able to call people and make your number look like another shouldn't be legal. This makes duping people easier. They are starting make their numbers looks like official numbers.

    @Skype Hi. Yes, this problem is still happening. It is hot or miss whether I'm able to answer the call.

  • jacobwyn29 𝗝𝗮𝗰𝗼𝗯 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿 🙏 🇺🇦 (@jacobwyn29) reported

    @Skype have you given up on your video calling service? It is absolutely pathetic! People are calling me, I try answering, but they continue to ring, if I'm lucky. Otherwise, it just says 'you have a missed call'! Please sort it out! #Windows10
