How to Sending SMS text messages via Skype

Solution

- Sending SMS text messages to your contact

1. Sign in to Skype.

2. Under Contacts, click the contact you want to send an SMS text message to.

3. There are two ways to send an SMS text message. You can either right-click the contact, and then select Send SMS Message…

 

…or, in the conversation box, click via Skype and select SMS.

4. Enter your message in the conversation box, then click the Send button.

 

When your SMS text message has been delivered, the “SMS: Delivered” status will appear next to your SMS text message.
If the Send SMS Message option is greyed out, this is most likely because your contact hasn’t saved a text-enabled number (usually a mobile number) in their profile. To add a mobile number to the contact, just click via SMS in the conversation window, then click Add phone
