Why Can’t Brits Dial The Right Number?

Exactly a month after my first one, I just got another SkypeIn miscall to my UK number. The guy was very apologetic, but what is it with us Brits that we can’t dial the right number?

It also made me realise there’s no way to mute the call or divert it to voicemail on Skype. Or is there?

  1. I was wondering about this myself, so I tried it. Just click the ‘hangup’ button when the inbound call is ringing, and it’ll divert to voicemail.

    Check tools – options – voicemail.

    Under settings you can choose to divert the call to voicemail or play the busy tone, and also set up how long the call will ring for before diverting automatically.
