I wondered why I wasn't receiving any texts from my online number! I certainly won't be renewing this service now. What's the point of being able to send messages to mobiles if you can't receive them?

I agree 100%
Wish I could get a refund too. Did I miss something? Was it stated somewhere?
I only signed up to receive SMS too...
I've been able to receive text to voice SMS on my UK Skype number too.
And if I've not been about to answer the call, then I could call 00448456021111 and hear any text messages I've received.
This is a BT service and the call costs the 0845 charge.
This is just to add my request that SMS messages should be able to be received by online skype phone numbers. It's a pain to only be able to receive them via BT's text-to-speech service.
Or is it possible to switch that service off and then receive texts?
Why is it that Google Voice can send and receive text messages and skype cannot? When does skype intend to make available text messaging (both outgoing and incoming)? This information would be very helpful for you customers. As it stands now I have to give people my Google Voice number to receive text messages and I am wondering what exactly I am paying skype for.
