Skype out calls now passing caller ID

Previously skype out calls displayed either a Callerid "00001234" or no caller id at all, but now you can set the caller id that Skype send to a caller when you place SkypeOut calls by logging into your Skype account.
Under the "Caller identification" section click "Setup" and enter the caller id you want displayed whenever you place Skype out calls. Skype then sends a verification code via SMS to your mobile phone to verify the number specified as your caller id to prevent caller id spoofing.
