    I am still running Skype 7.41 because in Audio Settings it has a Ringing device option in addition to Speakers and Microphone. I pick up a Plantrontics headset to take calls, but I first want to hear the ring on the PC speakers. That is how a telephone works. You hear the ring then pick up the handset/headset. All the Skype 8 versions tried previously did not have a Ringing device option, so they were useless. In the current Skype 8, is this fixed now?

    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:
