Your credit will become inactive in 30 days

It appears that you haven’t used any of your Skype Credit for quite a while. It becomes inactive if you haven’t used it for 180 days in a row.

Your account details:

Skype Name: wiseguyrussell
Balance: GBP6.92
Expiry date: 2010-02-11

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.
