You would like to send a Skype message to johndoe from your mobile phone. Here is an example showing how the message should be written:
skype johndoe This is an example message
You would then choose the SMS to Skype entry from your phone book and send the message.
Tip: Many mobile phones allow the creation of template SMS text messages, which can be used instead of
having to type the same message each time. Save a template SMS text message for frequently used Skypenames, like this:
In the Skype software please select: Tools / Options / Privacy and set "Allow chats from..." to "anyone"
(The Skype user which sends the messages is called "sms-to-skype")
