SMS text messages don't go through

[ Edited ]

I am sending texts to mobile numbers from my activated Skype number and they are not going through. I did send one to myself, which I received that one... But it wasnt from the Skype number I purchased... It was from a 5-number account # and I could not respond to it... Help!!

Re: Messaging

Take a look here at how to set up your senderID to be used when sending SMS from Skype:

Please also be aware that currently you can't receive replies to your SMS in Skype, but only on your mobile phone if you have set it up as explained above.

Keep your Skype up to date
