Receiving SMS Text messages

Novel Tourist

I have figured out how to send an SMS text, but when they reply back I do not get their response.  What do I need to do to send and receive texts.

 

Thanks,

You can't receive SMS replies directly within Skype. But you can setup your Skype sent SMS that way that they appear to be sent from your mobile. SMS replies will then reach you on your mobile phone.

Im deployed and without a cell phone I thought I was paying so I could send and receive SMS text messages. If you ask me its BS that I can not get the text!

How does the number show up and will it work if the one I am texting is on the phone with someone else?

I agree this is [edited for inappropriate language], I paid for skype specifically so that I could send and receive text messages. If I just wanted to send them I would have used one of the free sms text sending sites.

So wait. I just went to check out SMS on skype before buying some credits. It says nothing about not receiving texts, which is what I need it for, so I buy some credits. Now I find out when I try to send a text I can't receive the reply? You need to make that clear from the beginning.
