Hi guys, was wondering if it is possible to set my caller identification to my Skype online number in stead of my mobile number.
I'm using it for business and would like people to call me back on my skype line in stead of on my personal mobile

Yes it is. You can choose either your Online # or your cellphone #.
Go to > Account Page > Set up Caller ID > Verify Number
This is not working for me. I can't see my online number in the list, and if I add it it says it is an invalid mobile phone number.
I am having the same issue, the option is not there to use the online number just a mobile number.
Very annoying having paid for a service that does not work
I have had Caller ID working with both a verified mobile number and my Online Number. However, there are two problems.
(1) Caller ID (at least in the UK) appears to work if the call is received on a mobile network but not with BT landline (the main landline operator in the UK). I'd like Sype to make a definitive statement about whether Caller ID should work with BT. I've spoken to both Skype and BT, neither of whom could help or be definitive.
(2) Skype seems to keep 'forgetting' about my Caller ID setting - instead of showing the current Caller ID number it shows the link to setup Caller ID. I've re-set the number several times and it sticks for a few days then disappears again.
I'd be interested in other user's experience of Caller ID + BT
I'd like a further response on this, I'm really annoyed that a feature that I'm paying for is not working. Also, clients call me back on my mobile phone now, what is clearly not what I want.
Could anyone get back to me on this? I would hate to cancel my account and go through the trouble of getting a VOIP phone for my business, but if I have no other option than to get this fixed (i'm paying for this), than I have to.
