Skype make users change numbers

Introducing the 3 Skypephone

It seems users in the UK with 020 7 numbers are being forced to change them by mid December 2007, that's about 2 weeks.

When BT make changes they give about 2 years notice.

It seems the numbers allocated belong to Gamma Telecom, so has Skype had a falling out with them? Or did they change UK providers and they don't have a porting agreement with Gamma. Whatever the story is, users are not happy - especially users who have printed their SkypeIn details on business cards.

As Skype are not UK based, Ofcom who would normally stop things like this happening, cant really do much, though new EU regulations might change that as well as Ofcom regulations forcing anyone who operates in the UK to abide by UK regulations.
