As we continue to refine the Skype profile experience, we will sometimes remove extraneous fields. With the latest update, we have removed the Home and Office phone number options to consolidate and simplify the Skype profile experience. If you already have a Home or Office number in Skype, they will be inactivated in your profile; they will not be updatable, but you can remove them. In future updates, you may not be searchable in Skype by those phone numbers.
