I would like that my Skype contacts can contact me over text chat only. Is that possible? If so - how to set that up?

Thank you.

What do you mean, exactly? Do you want contacts not being able to call you, is that it? – slhck Jan 19 '13 at 11:53
Exactly. No call and no webcam chat, just text chat. – Sam Jan 20 '13 at 12:04

You can use a third party application that supports Skype chat. I use Trillian; it supports many protocols including Skype Chat, GTalk, Yahoo Messenger, Facebook chat, and more.
