    Curious to know if there is a way to use Skype to send sms to those who do not have a Skype account. The entire phone book is visible in Skype and it lets us call any number, but, I haven't found an option that'll let us message them.

    Found a related FAQ on It says that we can sms any number directly from iOS and Android but there's no mention of WP8.

    Update: Had a long chat session with a rep from Skype. It is not possible to send text messages to contacts who do not have a Skype account from a WP8 mobile device, but is possible to do so from the PC version of it.
