    @Skype @Deepakbayofads My account is locked too for no reason. The chat kept me waiting forever and I never got to “chat”.You have a terrible new team at Skype. I use my account to call my elderly mother. She doesn’t have internet access and you cut off my only communication route. Brutal brutal brutal

    I use @Skype subscriptions for talking to my family in Iran. Yesterday, Skype suspended my account because of using their service and told me I should create a new account, rest of my current package is gone and they even won't refund the package. Amazing service and support!!!

  • KeystonePRIME B. Dean Berry (@KeystonePRIME) reported

    @Sarge_73Z28 @Skype Discord by Microsoft! Hey guys, it's so broken it can't be used, so.... It's fixed! Give us $6!

  • KeystonePRIME B. Dean Berry (@KeystonePRIME) reported from Northvue, Pennsylvania

    So, it's been a long time, but when did @Skype become a combination of expensive to use, completely unintuitive, and broken?

  • mortgagecarl Carl McGovern (@mortgagecarl) reported

    @ViberHelp @Skype It was. @Viber help seemed to blame everyone but themselves. Been with them for 10 years too.

  • shahrukTweets Karachiite (@shahrukTweets) reported

    What is wrong with @Skype? Calling button is not working.

  • CruelesEd EGP (@CruelesEd) reported

    @Skype I have an issue on my Android and Skype becoming active without my consent when I am on calls via my regular number paid to my cellphone provider. Is this normal now? #datasecurity #help

    .@Zoom @Skype @Webex how have none of y’all figured out a way to eliminate the awkward lag when your service is used for tv interviews???

  • mortgagecarl Carl McGovern (@mortgagecarl) reported

    Cancelled my @ViberHelp account now, as I couldn’t let this error carry on. Fortunately @Skype have a free trial for a month, so giving them a go. Hard to accept that Viber do this to me after being a loyal customer for 10 years.

    @Skype #robbery #theft report: I had a 60 min sub. After talking only 20 mins on the phone my credit ran out! I sent DM to @SkypeSupport and reported the issue, and they directed me to an imaginary non-existing team. If you like your money, avoid using #Skype. their reply:

    .@skype #skype Your product has become too unreliable to use for business. I CAN'T SHUT IT DOWN WITH TASK MANAGER. That is a problem when a program is unresponsive. And yours is unresponsive a lot. Made me late to a meeting today. #byeskype

  • taran_alex Alex Taran (@taran_alex) reported

    @MaxMoralesChile @MedhiGaurav @Skype in 2005 when I was in Iraq and Kuwait, Skype cut my monthly phone bill from $500 down to like $25. My thought was this is going to be a game changer

  • JustGotHere2016 Yeki (@JustGotHere2016) reported

    @Skype We cannot contact our families in Iran as the internet is shot down by IRI. Will u support #IranProtests2020 by making calls to lines and cells in Iran free of charge? #مهسا_امینی

  • JadeStarkXXX JadeStark 🖤🐺 (@JadeStarkXXX) reported

    @Msbitchtaylor @angelina__glass @Skype i was so annoyed that i almost screamed into the phone that i was going to find out where they are located and… 😬 i have anger issues lmao

  • aminjorati Amin Jorati (@aminjorati) reported

    @Skype your support the #IranRevolution by offering free calls at a time the internet has been shut down in the country was greatly appreciated. Alas it was too short lived, while the revolution and crackdown continue. Any chance you'd like to renew your support?

  • fuelbot Brian (@fuelbot) reported

    @Skype is a miserable service with abysmal customer service. The worst.
