I have my Skype on iPhone "caller ID" set up (via the website) so when I call from skype to a cell phone my preferred number shows up. But if I send SMS to that same phone a random number is shown as the sender. In they Skype app the "Skype Number" field shows "Not Active".
So something is not working.
Thanks for your advice, I shall join the community spamming email@example.com
My phone is registered in Finland, so the number starts with +358. Since recently the persons receiving my SMS see that they come from +44, that is Great Britain. What is even more funny is that the number following +44 is different every time. Clearly people cannot know that I sent the SMS and they cannot reply.
Has anyone had a response from Skype regarding this.
I purchased a number and it doesn't display when I call people and an old, deleted number now displays as the number sms messages are being sent from.
A teensie bit rubbish folks!!!!!
