    How do I change or remove my phone number in Skype?

    Skype can use your mobile number in multiple ways, such as a way to sign in, to display for Caller ID, or to use for Call forwarding so you don't miss any Skype calls. If you want to change the mobile number associated with your account for Skype, there are a few places to change it. Note that you may need to verify your phone number for it to be searchable. Learn more about verifying your phone number in Skype.

    1. Sign in to your Skype profile page.

    3. Select Edit Profile and go to the phone number field.
    4. Change the number to your new number, then select Save.

    As we continue to refine the Skype profile experience, we will sometimes remove extraneous fields. With the latest update, we have removed the Home and Office phone number options to consolidate and simplify the Skype profile experience. If you already have a Home or Office number in Skype, they will be inactivated in your profile; they will not be updatable, but you can remove them. In future updates, you may not be searchable in Skype by those phone numbers.
