Can I use my Skype number as caller ID

Can I use my Skype number as caller ID ? So when I call someone to landline or mobile phone from my skype account, the skype number shows up in caller ID of person I call ? Also, you can't contact any skype employed person for advice ?

This depends on where your Online Number is located, as not all Online Numbers can be used for Caller ID.  From my own 4 Online Numbers, I can use the numbers in the USA and UK as Caller ID, but not those from Australia or Mexico.  Local/national regulations or limitations from Skype's partners providing those Online Numbers may be to blame, if your Online Number(s) can't be used as Caller ID.

 

To see if you can use that number as Caller ID, log into your Skype account here on the Skype web site (click on the "Account" link at the top of this page).  You should be able to go in and change your Caller ID settings once you get in.  If your Online Number is eligible for use as Caller ID, you should see it as an option (or maybe the only option) when you get in there.  If it can't be used, then your only option would be to use the two-step SMS verification process and set a mobile number as your Caller ID when calling telephones from Skype.

 

More info on the Caller ID stuff with Skype is available at the "Caller ID" link at the bottom of this page.  Good luck!
