Every time I’m forced to mess around with Skype, I find it still has issues making it not worth the effort.
Here’s the recent rash of the latest open issues:
- It will not deliver caller ID (of my US mobile) on SkypeOut PSTN calls to the US – it is all setup on the Skype Accounts page, but it still just delivers garbage to the call recipient.
- It will not send the SMS to verify the number for using in outbound SMS – is this hard?
- Presence is totally useless and never seems to show the actual presence of (specifically certain) users on the buddy list – it shows them as not connected (or undefined, the little question mark) when they are actually on-line and able to receive calls.
And once again, I say to myself, “Oh yeah – now I remember why I stopped using this before.”
