There was a suggestion from a skype monitor to use 249211..... because 211 is the city code for Atbara in Northern Sudan. I wonder about the wisdom of such a suggestion. It also does not work
Has anyone had a reply from Skype on this issue? Or have they failed to even acknowledge the question raised? Very poor form from an organisation supposedly worth in excess of $8 billion.

I've forwarded this issue to the relevant Skype Dept.
Apogogies for the lack of response. Skype is aware of the change.

this is becoming a huge problem...it is rediculous that Skype can't add a proper country code. Right now there are some serious conflicts between tribes in South Sudan. Many people have lost their lives. Some of the most important people in helping work for peace are South Sudanese in the Diaspora who are burning up the phone lines to try to dampen conflict and mobilize for peace. But they are having to use expensive phone cards rather than Skype.
Make this URGENT, URGENT, URGENT to get the +211 code working for Skype!!
