Just to clarify that Puerto Rico only appears to create new accounts in Skype, but Puerto Rico do not appears in the list of states to get online numbers.
My question is:
Why SKYPE do not has available online numbers for Puerto Rico? All communication companies include the areas codes of Puerto Rico in his lists.
I will appreciate your support. Thanks.

Puerto Rico is not part of the United States.
The Online # program can only be introduced in Puerto Rico when the telco authorities there issue the necessary licenses.
TIME ZONE - US EASTERN - PHILADELPHIA PA USA - UTC/GMT MINUS 5 HOURS
I recommend that you always run the latest software version: Windows & Mac

How about explaining why PR (and presumably GU/VI/AS) IPs are being blocked from seeing the US/Canada Unlimited subscriptions? I'm sure both the FCC and the Federal Trade Commission would take an interest in Skype charging us over twice as much ($6.99).
Do us all a favor and escalate this. Please?
As said borikua, Puerto Rico is inside the FCC Regulations, and i quote:
"FCC has jurisdiction in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and U.S. possessions such as Puerto Rico, Guam, American Samoa, and the American Virgin Islands." Maybe you have to read more about that. That's a problem what have some companies in the US, Look PR as a piece of earth where some people don't know where we are.
PR pays IRS, Social Security, and others.
Don't Look PR as some politicians view us.

For one reason or another Puerto Rico phone numbers/ DID Numbers seem to be regulated locally in Puerto Rico.
This also explains the price differences between getting a USA phone number and a Puerto Rico one.
This is an old post, but happened to came across it now. Very respectfuly, I wish to convey my opinion about Norman's answer: PR is part of the US (is offcicially a commenwealth). Everyone in a position where assistance to others is necessary or providing guidance of some sort should be careful about the answers provided.
I cannot understand why Skype can provide numbers for a given amount of countries (not part of the US) and can't for one of its components. I think the same applies to Alaska and Hawaii.
An finally, the communications agency governing all communication aspects in PR is the FCC. A quick glance at their website will show all telecommunication companies in PR must adhere to federal regulations. I truly can't see the reason for not having numbers for PR.
