Subscription doesn't work - what to do?

[ Edited ]

 

In order to help you with subscription issue, it would be a great help if you can first check these points.

 

1) Make sure you actually have an active subscription:

https://secure.skype.com/account/call-phones/packages

 

2) Check if your subscription is suppose to cover your destination. This is the most common reasons why customers have calling issues.

 

3) If your subscription minutes are not reset then please keep in mind that minutes are reset based on first payment date and time in GMT timezone, not based on recurring payment which is done 3 days in advance to avoid delays. You can check this from your order history if you open order ID: https://secure.skype.com/wallet/account/orders

Click on: "Account details" then: "Billing & payments" and locate "Purchase history".

Now, in case you have checked the above and subscription should be covering your calls then please contact customer service: http://community.skype.com/t5/Payments-and-Billing/Contacting-customer-service/td-p/631621

Wrong subscription/plan selected? - What now?

[ Edited ]

You bought a wrong subscription and realized it shortly after. Skype does not offer an option to switch or upgrade subscriptions. Instead please cancel the current plan, request a refund and buy the correct one.

 

Please note: You can get a refund for your subscription only if you haven’t used it (at all) and it hasn’t expired.
