Skype doesn't support incoming text messages - you can set up an SMS ID which allows you to send SMS messages from Skype and receive the answer to your mobile phone.


To do this, go to Skype -> Preferences -> Messaging. After you have validated your mobile number, all SMS messages you send from Skype will display your mobile number as the sender ID.

Hi. Sorry. What I am trying to do is if some one sends me a typed message on my Skype, is there a way to get that message on my BlackBerry?
