If you create an account using your phone number in the new Skype, your phone number will be temporarily unavailable for others to use to find you on Skype. This is a known issue and will be resolved soon. However, people will still be able to use your full name to search for you on Skype.
If people are having trouble finding you, here are a few tips to help:
- In the Chats screen, tap your profile picture and tap the Settings button. Tap Share profile and you can share your unique link with friends and family.
- In the Chats screen, tap your profile picture and tap the Settings button. Your Skype Name will be listed in your profile. Your friends and family can find you in Skype via your Skype Name.
- Start a chat with your friends and family first. The chat will appear in their Chats screen, and they can chat or call you easily from there.
