    @fobiwankenobi If you had better internet service available I would 100% offer to show you how to set it up online and then we could talk via Skype. Btw I take full credit for sparking this in you so I’m sorry and also you’re welcome

    @SavannahAllure After I had one of my top guys that was doing skype with me he reported to PayPal on why he was sending so much money to me, PayPal shut me down so I stopped doing skype don't need the headache.

  • PamyLaveux Pamela Laveux (@PamyLaveux) reported

    @OANN @YouTube Discord is not a video game, it's a communication service equal to Skype, Twitter, and Facebook. This boy is an idiot, arrest him let him spend a night in jail, maybe he will grow up. The police do a disservice to not arrest.

  • Atomic__Bear Christopher Barrett 🇨🇦🇺🇸 ☢️🐻 (@Atomic__Bear) reported

    @jay_a_severns Side note... as long as you’re connected to WiFi, you CAN make phone calls through a VOIP (Voice Over Internet Protocol) service such as WhatsApp, Viber, Skype, FaceTime Audio (or video- Apple only) etc for free. Just search google for free voip apps.

  • AirsomeHQ airsome (@AirsomeHQ) reported

    @Barge1Burges @Telstra Maybe try Skype or similar next time. It works over the Internet (data) service.

  • internetthought Rudolf van der Berg (@internetthought) reported

    @overdrev @steely_glint Of course, flatter yourself as you wish. Here is a report from 2004 in NL that already stated Skype was out of reach of the telecom law. Yes, there were some who tried to propose otherwise, but none of them could write it in ways that wouldn't capture every service on the net

  • markrhysdavies Mark D (@markrhysdavies) reported

    @GbdocTChost A6 #Gbdoc Yes, although I’m sure data protection would be an issue. I would be happy to Skype (on it so much anyway) - much easier time wise and with working away so much. Only problem would be physical checks - even VR couldn’t help.

  • MclarenSadie 💋Miss McLaren💋 (@MclarenSadie) reported

    @StripsEmily @SeattleStrips @eroticwrldmedia I'd like to set up a conference call sometime. I have my own conference call service line. I have never used Skype. But we need a meeting. IA needs a similar but harsher bill. I have an important topic that I'm not ready to make public

  • ymnzxx 🌍 (@ymnzxx) reported

    @SkypeSupport I just tried a call test and the sound seems not to be distorted anymore. I think by changing the microphone to "Mic in at front panel" fixed this issue. Thank you so much for helping

    Grammarly does more than catch errors. It interrupts your web browsing, video viewing, and even skype sessions. Grammarly is a pain in the tuchus.

    @SkypeSupport I need a researcher to talk to, not a third-party service where "suggestions" are voted up by people with other suggestions. No one browses the suggestion page for fun.

  • KetogenicGuy Guy Johnson (@KetogenicGuy) reported

    @campaignkate A few more bits of advice for the Skype part: 1. Ensure good internet connectivity 2. Clean non distracting background 3. A steady camera (ie if using phone set it down and don’t be moving it around). Wish her luck 👍

  • _burakkurkcu Burak Kürkçü (@_burakkurkcu) reported

    @TeorikDeli I think the problem can be the small square of camera feed at the upper left corner in the gameplay video. it looks like you are accessing and overlaying front camera feed in the game, like skype does with video calls. which seems to be misleading in this case.

    Also, it annoys the living shit out of me that I have to use a VPN to get out of forced localisation to download the "desktop" Skype to get around the terrible Windows 10 version. #BitchingAboutSkype

  • DahliaLuXXX DahliaLuxxx MV Live Creative Star OTY 🥳 (@DahliaLuXXX) reported

    I’m looking for Custom vids/ Skype shows the next week or so to help pay for this trip to see my grandmother. She’s had another heart surgery and it doesn’t look good so I can’t put it off. I also have to get a rental car and won’t be able to work this weekend.

  • Jensen86B Brett Jensen (@Jensen86B) reported

    @GarageGuyChase No, there should be 100% there. I've had too many people slow down a draft with shitty Skype calls, picking guys who were picked half a round ago and timing out their connection. It's terrible 🙈

  • FinolaK Finola Kerrigan (@FinolaK) reported

    This is excellent. First of course he is correct that racism is a societal problem not one existing in a box. Second, I always struggle to find a ‘professional’ background when having Skype meetings and the headboard is much better than the laundry rack

  • iamtheecaptain The Captain (@iamtheecaptain) reported

    @youwantsumfuck I'm praying and hoping for ya... if you need any help feel free to let us all know. The are plenty of performers looking for roommates, and I'm still interested in paying you for a Skype interview if you need a little financial assistance. In any case... hugs.

  • Shelley14583194 Shelley (@Shelley14583194) reported

    That's ok as long as they stop being hypocrites. They candace time or Skype. That's what they expect from others. I dont care how nice or down to earth they are. Hypocrisy is hypocrisy

  • Alpha4Ucash4ME YoungNCharge drainer (@Alpha4Ucash4ME) reported

    so i got the first response back from skype as to why my account was locked. "We locked account for reasons of many messages being sent to you in a day from different users and we thought it was fraud" .. lol if you are in demand like me i cant fix that shit *******

  • brambleshadow4 Jeremy (@brambleshadow4) reported

    @SkypeSupport Dug through some support forums and managed to fixed the problem w/ my account! The problem (and this still applies to my sister's) is that the security/verification email is different than the normal email used for skype.

    Just called IT about a weird Skype issue and he said "we had a long conversation about this yesterday morning." The first time I logged on was yesterday afternoon. He was about to call security and I was about to call a doctor before he was like "oh, that was someone else."

    End of Skype Wa TeamSpeak. Stand on your desktop and switch vaccination charges for games that offer Japanese integrated chat on mobile devices. This is a chat. Stop paying for Skype Maya on your TeamSpeak service device. Hat life.

  • cloeven Chad Loeven (@cloeven) reported

    I had to use Skype for Business twice this week for con calls with business partners. Microsoft really went out of their way to create a terrible user experience on that one.
