GetHuman994754's next move: find and follow the right step-by-step guide.
Skype doesn't have a customer phone number that is answered by an agent. Instead, GetHuman994754 will need to dig through the advice provided by Skype, other customers and consumer advocacy websites like GetHuman. Here are some instructions we've written for similar issues- hopefully GetHuman994754 can let us know if they help or not.
If you don't see a guide here that matches the problem you are having, please see if Skype has better answers for you: Skype Help Center
If time is of the essence or you are lost, we partner with a BBB-accredited US-based company that has live experts you can chat with about issues like this for roughly $20-45. Chat now with an expert.
