Skype for Verizon adds WEIRD phone number

I am mostly happy with the Verizon-supplied version of Skype; in fact, it was the tipping point that got me into a smartphone/Blackberry.  BUT it has an annoying "feature": it writes a do-nothing phone number into my contact list.  EVEN THOUGH I have set my contact list permissions to disallow duplicate names, I have EIGHT entries named "SKYPE", all of which have the stupidest phone number: "+".  The listed phone number is a plus sign.  That's it.


Since I work hard on maintaining my contact list I find this very annoying.  Can I squelch this by diddling with Skype's permissions (without breaking it in the process)?


Suggestions?  FYI, I am on a 9650 (Bold), OS 6.
