Re: skype phone number???



No, unfortunately that isn't possible.


There are two options available that might be interest to you.


1. You can configure your Skype account so that when you call  from Skype to somebody on a normal landline or mobile phone, your mobile phone number will appear to them on their display. To do this, go to your account at www.skype.com, select CALL PHONES and then select the Set up a caller identification to display your number on phones you call from Skype.


2. Skype also offers a service called 'online number'. This gives you a normal landline number which you can give to your friends to call you on. When your friends call this number, and you are on Skype, your Skype will ring and you will be able to have a voice call with them. This is ideal if you have friends who don't have Skype who you want to call you.
