Re: How do you disable caller ID?

Hi, RootPowered,

 

Here is a link to the current instruction for changing Caller ID settings:

https://support.skype.com/en/faq/FA2561/how-do-i-change-my-caller-identification-settings

 

This is a link to the library of FAQ articles related to Caller ID in general:

https://support.skype.com/en/category/CALLER_IDENTIFICATION/

 

If you find anything not working according to the instructions, please do post back noting what is incorrect or what is not working as it should.  Including your mobile device and/or computer, its operating system, and which web browser you are using would be helpful, as well.

 

Regards,

Elaine

Good catch! :happy:  My thanks to those of you who pointed out that in my instruction on how to contact Skype Customer Service that the blue "Send" button has been replaced with a green Next button, and that to file an e-mail request, we click "Submit."
