You can send text messages using Skype for Android phones and tablets at the same great Skype rates you get when using Skype on your computer. All you need is a little Skype Credit.
To send a text message to a Skype contact’s mobile or landline number:
If you can’t choose Send via SMS, it means that your contact doesn’t have any phone number attached to their account.
You can also send an SMS text message to a saved phone number. If a person in your People list has a telephone icon next to their name, it means that they have a saved phone number.
