Technical info on Belgium phone numbers
- Country code: The country code for Belgium is +32. To dial a Belgian number from abroad, you must first dial the international access code (e.g., 00 or 011), then the country code (32), and finally, the local number.
- Area codes: Belgian phone numbers are assigned to specific geographic areas, and each area has its own code. These area codes are typically 1 to 2 digits long, and they are dialed after the country code. For example, the area code for Brussels is 2, while the area code for Antwerp is 3.
- Local numbers: Local phone numbers in Belgium are typically 6 to 7 digits long, and they follow the area code. The combination of the area code and local number results in a complete phone number that is 8 to 9 digits in length.
- Mobile phone numbers: Mobile phone numbers in Belgium usually begin with a 4 followed by 8 digits, making them 9 digits long. For example, a mobile phone number might look like 047X XXX XXX.
- Formatting: In Belgium, phone numbers are often written with spaces to separate groups of digits for easier readability. For example, a landline number might be written as 02 XXX XX XX, and a mobile number might be written as 047X XXX XXX.
- Special numbers: Belgium has special numbers for various services. For example, emergency numbers like 100 (medical and fire) and 101 (police) are shorter than typical phone numbers.
- Dialing within Belgium: When dialing a local number within Belgium, you don't need to use the country code. Instead, simply dial the area code followed by the local number. For example, to call a Brussels number, you would dial 02 followed by the 6 or 7-digit local number.
- Number portability: In Belgium, phone numbers are portable between landline and mobile networks. This means that a person can keep their phone number when they switch between service providers or from a landline to a mobile phone.
The history behind Belgian phone numbers
- Pre-automation era (Before 1960s):
- Before the advent of automated telephone exchanges, Belgium had a manual telephone system, and subscribers were identified with names or short numerical codes. Calls were connected manually by operators who used switchboards to create the necessary connections.
- Automation and introduction of area codes (1960s):
- As automated exchanges were introduced in Belgium during the 1960s, a more structured numbering plan became necessary. Area codes were assigned to different regions, and subscribers' numbers became longer, usually consisting of five or six digits. At this time, Belgian phone numbers began to follow the format: (0A) BBB BB BB, where A represented the area code, and B represented the subscriber's number.
- Introduction of the closed numbering plan (1994):
- In 1994, Belgium adopted a closed numbering plan, which meant that all phone numbers had a fixed length, including the area code. Area codes were expanded to two digits, and the total length of phone numbers increased to nine digits. The new format was: (0AA) BBB BBB.
- National renumbering (1996):
- In 1996, Belgium went through a national renumbering process to better organize its numbering plan and accommodate future growth. The renumbering also aimed to harmonize mobile and landline numbers.
- The new numbering format included a zone code (0AA) for landlines and a carrier code (0AA) for mobile phones, followed by a six-digit subscriber number (BBB BBB). Landline and mobile phone numbers were distinguished by the second digit of the area or carrier code (landlines used 2, 3, 4, or 9, while mobile numbers used 4 or 7).
- Expansion of mobile numbers (2000s):
- Due to the rapid growth of mobile phone usage, Belgium expanded its mobile numbering plan in the 2000s, adding new carrier codes and lengthening mobile numbers to better accommodate the increasing number of subscribers.
