Available area codes for Online Number

Novel Tourist



im after an Online Number for the UK, but my desired area code, Southend (01702), is not listed. 


Am I able to get a Skype number starting 01702 or is this simply not availble?


kind regards,

Totally agree that the online UK number availabliltiy is VERY poor there are only a few available out of approx 650 area codes.


Derby please 01332 or Ripley 01773. I want to get an online number but can't see the point if you can't get a code that resemblance locality of user or callers to that number.


Please add more codes Skype, most other voip opereators do

I was wondering the same thing. It is very odd that the Skype support community doesn't seem to receive much actual support from Skype, and that it also seems impossible to reach someone directly. I was getting ready to purchase a number and start using this service but I don't think that would be a wise move after reading through the forum.
