Sending an SMS text message
To send a text message to a Skype contact’s mobile or landline number:
- Sign in to Skype.
- Go to People.
- Select a contact and tap the button.
Select Send via SMS.
Enter your message. You’ll see the number of remaining characters as you’re typing in.
- Tap the send button .
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.
Unfortunately, the person you sent the SMS text message to won’t be able to reply you on Skype.
