Will my Skype phone become a Teams phone?
Yes. Your Enterprise Voice integration with Skype will remain in place until we determine an official shutdown date for Skype in Q2. Until then, you can still continue to make and receive both internal and external phone calls via your Skype client.
Will I keep the same Phone number when my service is moved to Teams?
Yes, your same phone number will be moved to Teams once Skype is shutdown.
Can I start using Teams now even though my phone number is still tied to Skype?
Yes, Information Services is strongly encouraging adoption of Teams while Skype is still up and running. Use your Skype phone when needed but start to leverage Teams as much as possible (e.g. organizing meetings, chat, internal phone calls, etc.).
Can I make internal phone calls using Teams?
Yes, as long as the UTMB users you are calling in Teams has the Teams App open they can answer your call. We strongly encourage the use of this feature within your department in order to prepare you for this transition.
Can I make and receive external phone calls using Teams?
Not at this time. Once Skype is shut down and your phone number is moved to Teams you will be able to make and receive external calls using Teams. Until then, you can still continue to make and receive external phone calls via your Skype client.
