Re: Skype Premium Account; still getting pop-up ads.

I also have Skype Premium and although I don't see ads  on my PC or Mac, I do on my iPhone, and there is no way to turn them off.  This is double-dipping by Microsoft:  we pay a subscription AND we have to look at pop-up ads.  Does anyone have a solution?

Just to double check: You are using the same account to sign in on Mac and iPhone, right?

Two months on and a new payment, and I am still having this issue.  I won't be paying again if this doesn't get fixed.

Re: Skype Premium Account; still getting pop-up ads.

I am not getting the ads on my iPhone anymore.  I logged off on my iPhone.  I changed my Skype password on my Mac.  Then logged back in with the new Skype password.  I think I had been logged in on my iPhone with my Microsoft account, and maybe that's why I was getting the ads.  It's strange that the Microsoft account might not have recognized my Premium Skype account.

Yep, I have Premium also and am getting ads on my Skype. This is rather annoying.
