    Port Skype HK Number to Mobile Provider in HK

    I have a Skype number that begins + 852 8xxx xxxx. I am trying to port my Skype number into a Hong Kong mobile provider. I went to 3 and the agent there said it isn't possible to port a number beginning with 8. I contacted Skype and they said its possible. Any guidance on what I can do? Or even suggestions where I can port a Skype number to a VOIP provider that has the capacity to receive SMS messages? Grateful for any help or suggestions.

    Mobile numbers in HK can't start with 8. According to Wikipedia, numbers beginning with 8 are "personal numbers" so it will be hard to port it.

    Also, most people will probably not be able or willing to send SMS to that number because they have to pay.
