Questions and Answers

Which one is my Skype ID in iPhone 6? Please help me to get the solution?

I have signed into Skype using my phone number. Both my name and phone number are displaying on the Skype 'My Info'. I thought my phone number which I have used while signing in was my Skype ID, but it seemed that my friends who wanted to add me in their contact list could not find me. So, which one in my Skype user ID? Please guide me. I hardly use Skype. May be due to seldom use of this application I am facing the problem in using it, which may not be true for other users. I have tried: I requested one of my friends to add me using my phone number. That didn't work. So he found me using my name that I have entered in My Account. I think it was caused by: I have not much idea. I am hoping to getting the support from the experts.
