Hi I want to show my mobile number when sending SMS With Skype.

I have tried the following.

In Skype for Windows go to Tools > Options > IM & SMS > SMS Settings, click the link Verify your mobile phone number and then follow the steps described.

There is no SMS settings or verify button? only a setting to let me choose anyone or my contacts.

Skype 5.8 OS7

"only a setting to let me choose anyone or my contacts."

Have you selected the option on the left for SMS Settings and bought "Skype Credit to send SMS to mobile phone"?
