Customer Question
My contact has 2phone...

My contact has 2phone numbers. However Skype, which displays an image of a phone apparently calls only to one of these numbers. A question: How can I see both numbers?

Technician's Assistant: Have you checked your Internet connection?

Yes

Technician's Assistant: What's the brand/model/Operating System (OS) of your computer?

I have MacOS Siera

Technician's Assistant: When did you purchase your computer? What troubleshooting have you tried?

Long ago, it is actually a desk computer in my business place

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Computer Expert to know before I connect you?

In the old version of Skype I saw the option of selecting a phone number for a contact. It is gone in the new Skype display

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
