I'm using Skype 5.1.0.968 on latest  Mac OS and cannot figure how to edit/change/delete a phone number that I have created in the contacts list.  I've tried everything I can think of!!!

Re: how to edit phone number in contact?

Thanks.  However, I don't seem to have an edit button next to some of the phone numbers.  For example, I somehow have my son's phone number but without the +1 indicating that it is in the U.S.  I'd like to be able to delete that phone number for him while at the same time retaining the correct one that does have the +1 and retaining his Skype name.  There is no edit button next to the bad phone number.  So I'm still stuck.

Please right click on the SkypeOut contact, can you edit it?

No, unfortunately right-clicking doesn't allow deleting or editing, either

Ok, noted, did not realize that the mac versions did not supoport this same method as the Windows release.

Just to clarify, you can only edit numbers that you included under a certain contact's profile.  If the one who added that number is the contact himself, the edit option will not be available.

Re: how to edit phone number in contact?

I'm thinking maybe these are numbers that I added in an earlier version of Skype and maybe that's why the current version isn't allowing me to edit them.  I'm pretty sure these are numbers that I would have put in myself.  Does this seem possible?

I'm not sure, but I think you can ask the contact in question if the number you wish to edit also appears when they view their own profile.

Re: how to edit phone number in contact?

I'm running into the same problem, also using a Mac, even with the latest version off Skype...

What happens is that the contacts from my personal Adresbook are imported to skype and skype automatically puts in the landcode(+31 for the Netherlands). I have some american nummers in my adresbook that did not have the US landcode in front of the numbers yet. Now skype has added +31 in front of the US numbers. 

And I can't find a way to edit these numbers......

 

anyone can help?? Please do!
