I have just purchased some Skype credit so that I can try using Skype to keep in touch with my family in China while I am in the UK receiving cancer treatment. My wife has entered her Chinese mobile phone number in her contact details and I have added her as one of my contacts. The problem is that when I try to send an SMS to her mobile number from Skype on my iPad or iPhone, I get an error message that the phone number is invalid. If I send the SMS from Skype on my laptop it works fine or if I use Skype on the iPhone/iPad to make a voice call to her mobile, the number works fine.
This is clearly a bug with the Skype software on the iPhone/iPad, has any one else had similar issues or is there a fix for the problem?
I have exactly same problems, and I have heard about others too. So annoying.
I only experienced it though since the last update few days ago (late April 2012)
If answer was helpful please give Kudos and if issue is resolved mark it with solution for other users. Thanks!
Sama thing started happening to me 2 days ago. I've been trying since then but wasn't successful.
Has anybody has any new suggestions for me? (Oct 4 2013)
