Skype is Really Sorry About Your London SkypeIN Number starting with 0207!

Straight from Skype Forum. Do not click on links as they pertain to reporting persons account.

Change to your London SkypeIn number


We're very sorry to tell you that we have to change your SkypeIn
number. As some of you may know, we get SkypeIn numbers from a variety
of telecoms suppliers. Unfortunately, we have to return some of the
0207 SkypeIn numbers to one of our suppliers of London numbers.

This means your number will stop working from December 20th 2007. We
realise the inconvenience this will cause you, and sincerely

That's why we're going to give you a new SkypeIn number and voicemail
- free for 12 months on us - to thank you for your patience and to
help make the changeover as painless as possible for you.

Please make sure you redeem your voucher before December 20th 2007

Your next step: activate your new number.

Before December 20th 2007 activate your new SkypeIn number. We suggest
you do this as soon as you can.

1. Visit
2. Log in and enter the SkypeIn voucher code above.

Due to changes in the capital's number plan there is a limited
availability of 0207 numbers and we cannot guarantee that you will
find a 0207 number to replace your existing one. However, we have
plenty of 0208 numbers and 0203 numbers which OFCOM has introduced to
cover the whole of Greater London.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact our customer advisors
directly at We've also created a step-by-step
guide to help you redeem your voucher and choose your new
SkypeIn number.

The (really, really sorry)
people at Skype
