What's happened to Skype Numbers in Italy?

Italian Skype Numbers are no longer available. Unfortunately, our efforts to restore Skype Numbers in Italy have not been successful, and we have now decided to terminate Skype Numbers in Italy.

We are currently in the process of providing our customers with a full refund for their Skype Numbers, and we are also providing a voucher for one month of our Unlimited World subscription. This will give you unlimited calls to phones in 40 countries worldwide, day or night, seven days a week.

You can redeem your voucher from your account by simply entering the numbered code. Find out more.

If you would like to retain your number, you can make arrangements with an alternative Italian service provider, and they will port the number on your behalf. This will allow you to continue to use your number through a new provider.
