France is renumbering its entire telephone system on 1996-10-18. The present system of 8 figure numbers is being replaced by a new one with 9 figure numbers. Within France, all calls will be dialled as 0-number. From other countries, calls will be dialled as +33-number.
Landline numbers are prefixed with 1. Mobile and pager numbers (those that begin with 4165, 4994, 4997, 51, 54, or 57) are prefixed with 6.
Landline numbers are changed by prefixing the digit given in the following table.
Mobile numbers change in a variety of ways.
Numbers in the various DOMs and CTs have their country code added to the 6 figure number and become ordinary 9 figure French numbers. This applies to:
|DOM or CT||Code|
|St Pierre et Miquelon CT||508|
It is not yet clear whether these are dialled internationally as +33-number or +-number.
