THERE NEEDS TO BE A CALL OPTION VERIFICATION FOR CALLER ID SMS DOES NOT WORK WITH EVERY SERVICE PROVIDER.
The Caller ID change option needs have a call option since SMS does not work with every provider. This is something every other service provider has long figured out eg. Whatsapp etc.. I understand you are Microsoft and always about ten years behind the eight ball but add this standard feature!
Agreed. The problem is that the Skype website for user account configuration does not offer Caller ID phone number verification by call-back or email, so there is no way to set a landline number as the Caller ID. When logging into a Microsoft.com account, call-back and email verification options are offered, but not at Skype.com. Why not? A landline number cannot be verified by text message, but the Skype website only offers verification by text message and does not offer the necessary call-back or email verification options for landlines, so landline users are totally disregarded. As a landline user, I paid for a Skype subscription to call landlines and mobile phones, but when I call someone they don't answer because I have no Caller ID. It shows as "Unknown" or "Restricted", etc. That is not what I paid for. Please fix this problem ASAP. This is a priority issue and should not be a continuing problem without a fix.
To the Skype Caller ID verification options, add phone number verification by call-back and email here:
