I'll echo what others said, I can't receive SMS from US banks to my US Skype number.

This had been going on for a while
Its about time you fix this issue worldwide
I bought a UK number which cannot receive SMS
Well my US Skype number no longer receives SMS messages from other US numbers if I'm overseas thanks to a recent update- it worked before!!! This has made banking impossible as the text security codes do not come through so as others have said, paying for this number is now useless.

I tried to SMS/text from my mobile to my US Skype number. It did not work.
I can receive SMS from individuals, but not from institutions like Banks or Paypal. This is extremely inconvenient, as these institutions always require verification by SMS.

Would love to be able to photos from camera role and group Texts. Keep investing in this feature please! Want to end my cell service badly.
BRING BACK PERSONALIZED VOICEMAIL ANNOUNCEMENTS allow voicemail to be downloaded - allow recording calls - you guys have destroyed this software continuously it gets worse - SMS = no privacy

I can't receive SMS, I have a US skype phone (+1 815....), I have caller ID configured and my skype number is selected as +1 815....
Can't receive MMS...
any idea when the UK numbers may be able to receive sms . its important for business to be able to send and receive and I bought the skype number in good faith! I hope this happens soon.
keep up with the times good people at Microsoft :)
Is this available for Skype for Business users, with US numbers?
Skype is incompetent and they lie all the time.
I can't receive SMS messages in the USA from my bank in the USA!
I have caller ID set up but the phone rings once then goes into voicemail!
I'm in the USA but they often send me messages in Dutch!
The star sign (*) and pound sign (#) on the keypad do not work!
Skype used to send emails letting you know that you received a voicemail, then Microsoft stopped that, they said their customers did not want that feature, A COMPLETE LIE!
In the modern age, you have to provide best support for your business to the customers so that it becomes easy for them to get more details about your services and can also get the help with their problems. I am so glad that I selected the sms automotive app from https://www.heymarket.com/automotive/ that is very affordable too.

I tried to send text message to bank (93557) but it always failed. Bank customer support said that skype block third party sms service.
can we now get Texte Messages from banks to a skype number
Ridiculous. This is 2019. I'm bummed that I bought the number, cancelling immediately. It's STONE AGE FEATURE. WAKE UP!! Is this Microsofts idea of improvement? You buy a perfect service and fail at something this obvious? Shamefully inept.
How we can inform that, which Country Number's can receive SMS on Skype ?

Not able receive SMS or voice calls on my US Skype number. All out going SMS to US/Canada show a 'delivery failure' message. I'm paying for a US Skype number but as of March17,2019 I can use it for outgoing voice calls only.
Where is the Support??????? I need help.
Officially we support US to US number SMS. So you probably won't be able to receive SMS from non US numbers. I'm saying probably cause it may work for some of you, depends on your provider and country.
It's not that we don't want to support it, but there is a lot of government regulations so it's just not possible right now.
