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?
