"How do you keep your balance active?
It's simple. Do any of the following and your Skype Credit balance will be active for another 180 days:
- Call any phone (landline or mobile) - even if the call lasts for just one second.
- Send an SMS message direct from Skype.
- Purchase a personal Online Number, subscription or voicemail using your Skype Credit."
I only have one question: why does Skype want to bug me with this? Hands off my balance, and stop hasseling me with this arbitrary nonsens.
