Welcome to the Skype community. To get started please read our short welcome post. Thanks!

With Google Voice never coming to Windows Phone, Skype should become the alternative

[ Edited ]
  • Add support for porting numbers to skype
  • Make Skype Number free for WP users (or at least very cheap, maybe bundled with the SkypeOut subscription)
  • Support in/out SMS
  • Add VoiceMail
  • Add selective call forwarding/number blocking


Some of these things are policy changes and some might be harder to implement but making Skype work for both skype-to-skype calls and phone-to-skype and skype-to-phone will allow users to replace their communications with Skype


If I could port my Google Voice number to Skype and for 5$ a month get unlimited in/out calling and texting I would do it yesterday.

No emergency calls with Skype
Skype is not a replacement for your telephone and can't be used for emergency calling
