Skype for SIP Caller-ID

Unanswered Question
May 2nd, 2010

I'm trying to get the outgoing Caller-ID Name to work with Skype for SIP.  I changed the pstn-to-sip under sip-ua, but it still shows Private when I place an outbound call.  I'm want the company name to show.  It worked with another SIP provider so I'm thinking Skype must not accept the Caller-ID Name to show.

Has anyone got this to work?


I have this problem too.

You are correct: Skype for SIP does not accept any outgoing caller ID information.

You can specify an outgoing number to appear, but only one number may be used on each Skype for SIP profile.  To do this, login to your Skype control panel and look for the "Caller ID" tab on the relevant profile.  Skype requires a verification process to confirm your ownership of the specified number, which takes about 2-3 weeks to complete.
