“This is rubbish”

Written on: 17/12/2013

Worked ok initially, two months ago. Now picture pixillates all the time. Voice cuts in and out and then vanishes completely. Tells me my computer is running too many programmes in the background for it to work properly. I'm running four. Took me an hour to find their email address, after dozens of so called help pages. None of which were any help at all. This is worse than useless. Looks like I'm going back to Google Hangout… Read Full Review

“Bad Customer Service. Payments not secure.”

Written on: 12/11/2013

In the past three months I have lost just under $100 from spammers on Skype. My account was used as a spammer's delivery tool in Sweden. Over one-thousand SMS texts were sent from my account - half in September and half early November. In September, a hacker gained access to my account and began to spam people in Sweden with texts. I promptly went to Skype customer service - attempted to resolve the issue, be refunded and move on. We took all the necessary steps to recover my account and… Read Full Review

“Unfair Charges”

Written on: 26/03/2013 by byadav (4 reviews written)

Have been speaking to Skype support for weeks about unfair charges, with no result what so ever. When I call a land-line sometimes Skype starts charging even if nobody picked up, I can hear the ring tone but Skype is charging and I end up paying for connection and for the first minute even though nobody picked up. Also Skype rounds the charge into their favor. I call to a country and the charges are following: Connection fee 7.6p and a minute is 6.9 total 14.5p, but Skype charges 15p, they… Read Full Review

okay, here goes, first of all the very few good things i have to say about skype. good - this is easy to set up and download, easy to get an account on etc, it is easy to add people 90% of the time. bad - where do i start? this is made out to be so great, which i found out to be total rubbish when downloading this onto my top of the range laptop, you would of thought it'd be good on a great laptop. ever since the day i downloaded it, it has been nothing but a disappointment, when you call… Read Full Review

“Remove "Click to call" and this is four stars”

Written on: 24/10/2012

I like Skype, and have used in successfully to stay in contact with my son in China. Some of the reviews about poor quality are a little unfair, as they depend on the internet speed. However, what I hate with every cell in my body is Skype's "Click to call" function, because it ruins web pages and also, perversely, stops EXCEL from copying and pasting correctly if installed on Google Chrome. If you install Skype it will sneakily install "click to call" in Chrome, and thus muck up your… Read Full Review

“Skype And Fraudulent Transactions”

Written on: 24/07/2012 by phangantiger (5 reviews written)

Five transactions suddenly went through my Paypal account totalling £150. Immediately I cancelled Skypes authority to take payments on Paypal and applied for a refund. If I had not been online at the time my entire bank account would have been drained. Skype claim that my account was hacked and that someone made the purchases. This does not make any sense. The purchases would have been for me and the money still went to Skype so there would have been no benefit to the hacker. The invoices… Read Full Review

“Only use for connecting to friends with Skype”

Written on: 21/06/2012 by Baldiebrit (2 reviews written)

I travel frequently, and signed up to Skype on a pay-as-you-go tariff to avoid cellphone roaming charges. It works, it's a lot cheaper than the mobile, and it's relatively easy to use. However, the quality of the audio varies from adequate to awful. The video link can be fun but appears very bandwidth hungry. I like: free when calling other Skype users. Conference calling. Video, if you like that sort of thing. I dislike: The audio quality, the user interface (terrible phone book usability)… Read Full Review

Anybody-Is's Response to Baldiebrit's Review

Written on: 04/04/2013

Hello from the Netherlands.
I have been a happy user of MSN Live for many years and am definatly NOT looking forward to its demise in the very near future. I have read more negative reviews than positive about Skype and will not be going over to it. Malware, slow speed, bad customer service ... no ping when my mail comes in.... I am taking notice. I would loose all my collections of emoticons, backgrounds, to become the bare bones of what I have now. That is not what I want. It may make business sense to Microsoft but from what I see up on the net it is not what many messenger users want. So sadly when the day comes I will bury MSN with love. I will look to the competition for alternatives. Sadly Anybody-is

“No connection and charged anyway”

Written on: 08/06/2012

Have used Skype intermittently for years with mixed results, recently used the iphone app while travelling in the USA. The app consistently failed to connect or connected after over a minutes wait, I was charged connection fees whether the call connected or not and whether I could hear the other party and communicate or not. It cost more than using standard mobiles to connect to the UK. Also realised that Skype has no means of actually communicating with a human being, the only way to raise… Read Full Review

“On pay as you go - pretty good. On monthly sub, pretty...”

Written on: 07/06/2011 by PaulW1 (4 reviews written)

Strange - with Pay As You Go, calling landlines, I'd have very few complaints. As soon as I went on monthly sub, UK only [I''m based in the UK] - pretty poor, at times dreadful. Calls drop and, at times, they don't even start. A few manage it to the end of my conversation. Do calls on Pay As You Go get a high priority because they cost more, or because the customer isn't 'in the bag' on a monthly sub and needs to be impressed?… Read Full Review

“They take your money and run!”

Written on: 07/06/2011 by Stevevg (1 review written)

I offer this review as a word of warning, particularly if you use skype for business. I began to use the service feeling that I'd broken away from the clutches of BT and was making a technological step in the right direction - how wrong! The line quality is poor for a start - although via the PC its not so bad you're end. The customer still hears a wind tunnel while talking to you. Their website can easily confuse - you can buy skype credit but its not tranferable to a subscription (vice… Read Full Review
