How to get an online number quickly?

Casual Adventurer



The current system keeps on complaining about available number, but at least you should have an ability to generate one once 4 tries are not available?  What gives?

Online #s are owned and allocated by the responsible telco in any given country/area - not Skype.


I recommend that you always run the latest Skype version: Windows & Mac

It's a good pointer, so, I gave you kodu and thank you, once the problem is resolved quickly, I'll then mark it as a solution.  Weird though, screen looks so pretty but system design is flawed.

skype email support is unhelpful.  I specifically asked them to generate a number for me since their system has a problem of doing so but they still have not.


Do they have a support phone number to call?  Thanks.

Problem.  Their email support still hasn't responded?  Is it likely some bad guy, I mean, corrupt/misinformed security apparatus individual messed me up?  Otherwise, I don't see any reason why such a simple task that skype support would fail to do.
