international caller ID
I am a UK resident living and breathing in the UK. I am not an international customer. So why does the number I set in the Caller ID come us as “International” and completely ignore what I asked it to do.
Your chat blamed all the other phone services but that’s a rubbish answer as why would Skype let its paying customers be seen as a Cold Caller or a Spammer? This is exactly what’s happening to those who now refuse my calls.
I use a PC Skype App the latest one and my caller ID is set to +442081443355 but it shows up on UK landlines caller displays as International. So they refuse my call.
Please can someone rectify this as I have set this to show a number and it used till now.
P.S. up until this point I recommended you to literally everyone, but now I’m being seen as a cold caller or a spammer because my phone number is replaced by the word international, I can’t inflict that on anyone. So, if you want referrals then call for a chat and let’s get this resolved, the Old school way.

I think the reason for that is because, despite the call having a UK number, it is originating from a phone network outside of the UK. So it is being flagged as "international".
If I am correct, in order to fix it, Skype would need to set up a server to place outgoing calls in the UK and buy phone line trunks from a UK provider.
I am in agreement that if you are using a UK number to call the UK, it shouldn't show up as international. But, it might be a very expensive fix for Skype.
