I have been successfully sending SMS messages from skype for many years and my mobile number has been shown correctly as the sending number. Suddenly it is now showing 75973. Obviously when people reply to my SMS I don't receive it. I have checked my settings and all appears OK. Can anybody help?

Which says if you are sending SMS to a phone number that is specific to China, Taiwan, USA, and Russia (although it seems they might follow different rules), then you will *not* get the cell phone number that you tied to your account.
