Show who's calling
Your mobile rings, you take the phone out and it says Unknown or a weird combination of numbers – and so you don’t pick up the call. Sounds familiar?
This might have been someone calling your phone with Skype because only people that had bought online numbers could set them to show on their friends’ phones when calling. Up until last week, anyway. Now anyone with a mobile phone can set its number to show when calling a landline or mobile from Skype.
Caller identification, as we call this feature, is easy to set up. Simply sign in to your account and follow the on-screen instructions. Please note that if you have previously set up your mobile number to show when sending SMS messages you don’t need to verify the number again. Just choose to use the same number to show for SkypeOut calls.
Setting caller identification is free to use and costs the price of two SMS messages to set up. It’s available for almost any mobile phone and subscription type in almost every country of the world.
