What a great idea.

I'm going to have to look into this for the summer. I'll be studying in London and was starting to contemplate the best way to stay in touch with people here.

I especially like the option of skipping the live chat and leaving a voicemail. Sometimes you hope that you'll get a person's voicemail without the big conversation, and this could ensure that.

I'm sure I will be wanting to spend my time on other things than the phone.


please send me description how to send sms to GSM phone from Skype.

Neville Hobson

Melanie, being able to send a voice message is one of the great features. I think this service will definitely be a winner once Skype rolls it out.

Neville Hobson

Hi Dominko. I think the SMS > phone service isn't fully ready yet so the details I currently have aren't the latest. We'll need to wait until there's more information.

Melanie Sollid

Welcome to marcomblog, by the way! We heard in class today that you were joining us and I'm excited to have your tech-ish perspective!

Neville Hobson

Thanks Melanie, I'm looking forward to participating!

Peter Huesken

Hi Neville,

Please sent me some details on the Skype-to-SMS service. I've tested the Connectotel SMS-to-Skype service, and it worked fine but in your post you refer to Skype-to-SMS via Connectotel while their site states that they're still working on the release of this (although they also state that it's been done)

Thanks in advance,


Hello Neville,

Can you please send me more info on the Connectotel Skype-to-SMS service?

Greatly appreciated :)


Neville Hobson

Peter and Tony - I don't now have any useful information, unfortunately.

As I mentioned in a previous comment here, I think the SMS > phone service isn't fully ready yet so the details I currently have aren't the latest. We'll need to wait until there's more information.

At http://www.summitcircle.com/ I have created a directory of all the third party Skype add-ons, Skype phones and Skype communities that I can find.

I have already collected ~150 different links.

What I've found most astonishing is the rate at which new add-ons, phones and communities keep appearing. I believe that I'm witnessing the creation and evolution of a Skype business ecosystem. I've already found 3 competing Skype-Outlook integrations!

I believe that if Skype can successfully manage and leverage this ecosystem they will certainly achieve a lasting competitive advantage.

Not sure what more you require ? Post details of costs etc please




sky pe messenger


I would like to use the service please advise
