I've just installed 64-bit Skype 4.0 for Linux under Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and I can Skype out to UK land-line numbers, but my credit balance is display3ed as £0.0 even though when checking online my credit is £11.59. There are red 'no entry' icons on the items in the display credit dialogue on my local Skype client. I've just upgraded from the version 2 Skype in the Ubuntu partner repository. Credit balance display worked correctly in the version.

Just discovered that the Skype credit balance is only updated after you make a paid-for call, so if you've upgraded the Skype client and not yet made a paid-for Skype-out call, your credit balance is displayed as zero even if you do have credit. I think this is a bug, not a feature!
I dont'know how many times I have cancelled my payment for call to landphones on my account, and still Skype keep stealing money from my account. And it is extremely diffifcult to get in contact with Skype - So please cancel the 2 accounts I have on stenhoejudlejning. When I need it again, I will take an other one. Kindly Pia
I have the same problem under Ubuntu 64-bit with the latest Skype from the repositories (4.0.0.. The credit shows as $0.00 upon install, even after login, then updates during a paid call.
