It used to be that when I called from my skype number that the caller ID would register as my online number. Recently that has changed. It comes up as one of many other random numbers from different states in the US, or even as a private number. Why the sudden change? How do I fix it so that my caller ID works? Was this change to not working a result of the recent buyout of skype? If this cannot be fixed there is no point in me having a skype number. Another question- is there an actual contact for skype support or do I have to hope someone from skype sees answers my question?
I have found where to change caller ID back to the online number. It is under Account-Call Phones-Display this number when I call phones... I have gone there and set it- multiple times. The settings stay with my online number for a short period of time (~2-3 days) and then go back to other peoples random numbers. Is there anyone from Skype who knows anything about this? Anyone from skype monitor their own forum? I see a lot of posts that generaly go unanswered by anyone from Skype. I do not like this lack of support.
This seems to be an ugly issue. One guy at: http://community.skype.com/t5/Android/Outgoing-cal
I also have been having the same problem. The area code is 661 or it comes up as restricted. Has anyone been able to resolve it? And I read somewhere that you could go back to an older version and it fixes itself. Does anyone have the link to an older version to download?
