Do Not Sign Up for Skype While Traveling
Do not sign up for Skype while traveling, or you may find yourself in a situation that you can’t fix. See this support chat with George from Skype:
Skype: Hello! Welcome to Skype Live Support! My name is George. How may I help you?
Me: Emails sent to my address are in a foreign language that I cannot read.
Me: I would like them reset to English.
Skype: Well. I apologize for sending you an email in the wrong language.
Skype: Our newsletter is sent per country, not per language, because it contains country specific promotions.
Me: When I signed up for Skype, I was visiting Ukraine.
Skype: Your country is identified by the geographic IP address that you had at the time you registered your account.
Me: Please reset my country to United States.
Skype: At the moment it is not possible to modify the country setting and we are working to implement this possibility.
