SkypeIn numbers are now available in Germany — finally, after a relatively long quiet period, we get a new SkypeIn country! Yay.
To buy them, just go to our Online Numbers page.
]]>SkypeIn Germany numbers have been on sale for less than 24 hours, but they’re already quite popular and we see numbers in many areas being sold.
SkypeIn Germany functions a bit differently from other SkypeIn countries. First, you cannot pick your own number, the system assigns it to you automatically. Second, you have to be a German resident and can get a number only in the area where you live. It might sound restrictive, but we had to make it work this way to get Germany launched in the first place. We’ve had a LOT of interest in German numbers and I know there are now a lot of happy Skype and SkypeIn users in Germany.
France now works a bit like Germany too — you have to be a French resident to get a French SkypeIn number (but you can pick your own number in France).
So if you live in Germany, head on to our [web store](http://www.skype.com/go/store) and get your SkypeIn number right away among the first. If you have any comments, questions or problems, our [Customer Support](http://support.skype.com) is always there for you and happy to help.
