Re: Sms-can people return sms?

You can't receive replies directly in Skype, but you can set up your senderID to be your mobile number. So SMS sent from Skype look like been sent from your mobile and if your contact replies you will receive the reply on your mobile. Here are instructions on how to set up the senderID: https://support.skype.com/en-us/faq/FA672/How-do-I-show-my-mobile-number-when-sending-texts-from-Sky...

Re: Sms-can people return sms?

I am also having trouble with SMS messages. Sending always fails when I want to verify my number so that people can reply to my SMS messages.  They receive them but can't reply. Is there any way to get sending to not fail?  Thank you!

Re: Sms-can people return sms?

Your help page on setting your mobile number so it shows on SMS messages sent from Skype says that it doesn't work in Canada and the USA, and that rather a generic number is always displayed, and thus recipients can't reply to an SMS sent from Skype.

 

Is that correct? (It appears to be, based on my testing.) And if so, WHY???
