I wanted to use Skype in Mexico to make a phone call, because I had no cell phone service there.
Skype has been purchased by Microsoft. When I went to log on to my Skype account, they blocked me pending confirmation of my Microsoft account via text or phone call – which I obviously couldn’t do. That was why I wanted to use Skype.
So I had to use phone at the hotel desk.
You just can’t make up stupid like these large corporations. Except for in Government.
