    The history behind Hungarian phone numbers

    • Early years (Late 19th to mid-20th century):
    • In the late 19th century, telephone services were introduced in Hungary. During these early years, phone numbers were relatively short, typically consisting of only a few digits. As the telephone network expanded, the numbering system evolved to accommodate the growing number of subscribers.
    • Transition to longer numbers (Mid-20th century):
    • As the telephone network continued to expand in the mid-20th century, the need for a more organized numbering system became apparent. Phone numbers grew longer, and area codes were introduced to differentiate between regions. This made it easier to route calls to their correct destinations and allowed for more efficient use of the available telephone lines.
    • Introduction of the country code (1960s):
    • In the 1960s, the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) assigned Hungary the country code +36 as part of the worldwide effort to standardize telephone numbering systems. This code is still used today and is necessary when dialing a Hungarian phone number from abroad.
    • Transition to 8-digit numbers (1990s):
    • Following the fall of communism in Eastern Europe and the subsequent deregulation of the telecommunications market in Hungary, the need for an updated phone numbering system arose. In the 1990s, Hungary transitioned from 6- or 7-digit phone numbers to a standardized 8-digit format. This change allowed for better organization of the phone system and made it easier to accommodate new services and providers.
    • Implementation of mobile phone numbers (Late 1990s - early 2000s):
    • As mobile phone usage increased in Hungary, separate numbering plans were established for mobile networks. Mobile numbers in Hungary generally begin with the digits "20", "30", "31", "50", "70", or "90", followed by a 7-digit subscriber number.

    Real price or typo?

    Mar 05, 2019

    Is the Vodafone price a typo or it’s really almost a dollar per minute to forward calls to Hungarian Vodafone mobile?

I’ve been outside the city for a while now so […]

    How caller-ID works when forwarding to a regular phone number

    Apr 10, 2022

    You can take any of our local phone numbers and forward the calls to any regular phone number in the world.

(everyone has their reasons) […]


    • Wasn't the internet supposed to make phone calls more affordable?
    • FlyNumber works great if you just launched a start-up and you're on a shoestring budget
    • Is your business already off the ground but you'd rather not spend hundreds of dollars a month on phone service?
    • We come from a "mom and pop" type background, rooted in the international diversity that is NYC. We understand business.

    Family and friends

    • For example you have friends or family in the U.S. but now live elsewhere, you can give them a US FlyNumber that forwards directly to your smartphone

    • Give family members who aren't tech savvy an easy way to reach you no matter where you are
    • Grandma or Grandpa would love a simple local phone number they can dial that connects them to their loved ones
