a few days ago i sent an sms and my nickname appeared on the message, altough for the last months i had the option for the phone number to show. i didn't change anything, but the nickname option was checked anyway AND the phone number option was disabled.
it seems that for an unknown reason, my number was not verified anymore. i tried to verify it again and again. of all the 10-15 times i pressed the "send verification code", i received only 1 sms with code and it still does not get acceptable when i type it.
is there a way to contact with someone, tell them to delete all my phone numbers for sms and then try from the start?
I am having the same problem - have been verified for years for SMS from my mobile number and just this week suddenly found myself unverified. But in my case I don't even receive the verfication code if I try and re-verify - have made about 10 total attempts on a couple of diffferent days and 50% of the time when I try and re-verify e.g. "Send a verification code to your mobile number" it gives me a message saying "Sending failed. Try to resend confirmation code."
I did a series of things and it's now working but not sure which fixed it. However they were:
a) two IM sessions with Skype support (no solutions at the time but in the 2nd the guy said he would escalate to second-line support)
b) just kept on requesting on and off a verification code over a couple of days and eventually got one
c) in Advanced -> Connection I had 'Use port 80 and 443 as alternatives' unchecked so as an outside possibility I checked
However, the system itself seems to be working correctly, as SMS messages from my Skype go out with my mobile number.
Another pain is that when I try to contact skype the system wipes all my message and tells me to check my internet connection - A problem that's happened time after time.
This has happened to me too !!!
I asked on the help page they said upgrade my skype to latest version will cure it ( i think just to get rid of me) as it did absolutely NOTHING...
Then i asked again they said delete skype and reinstall, yep DID NOTHING except lose all my chat history!!!!
still i cannot get my sms confirm telephone number, it asks everytime,,USELESs....
Why cant they seem to cure this simple problem????#
