I have been using my Skype account to call & send SMS to a friend in UK for months without any problems. (I am in US.) Now that I've updated the Skype app on my iPhone, I am unable to send him SMS, as I get an error message saying "invalid phone number". However, I can still call that number from Skype on my iPhone & I can still send SMS to it from Skype on my computer. Thoughts?
I have the exact same problem when trying to sms to Germany. Before I updated to the most recent iPhone app it worked fine.. but since the update, nothing. I've tried multiple times for help, but no one seems to know anything.
I recommend to download the latest Skype and search first.
To get the most out of Skype I recommend Skype Premium.

i am posting to warn everyone! if you purchase an online number you are stuck with it till you buy a new one! skype will not change your number for you if you have a need for a new number! be aware.
