    How do I reactivate Skype Credit?

    1. Sign in to your account.
    2. Click Reactivate Credit.

    It might take up to 15 minutes to reactivate. We'll send you an email when it's done. 

    If you're in Japan, things work a little differently. Please refer to our Terms of Use for more information. 

    Skype Credit will go inactive after 180 days of no use. Make sure you place a call (outside your subscription, if you have one) or send a text every 180 days. We send two reminder emails, 7 days and 2 days before your Skype Credit becomes inactive. 

    No emergency calls with Skype
    Skype is not a replacement for your telephone and can't be used for emergency calling
