Technical info on Israeli phone numbers

  • Country code: +972
  • Area codes:
  • Landline phone numbers in Israel are assigned geographic area codes, also known as STD (Subscriber Trunk Dialing) codes. The area codes can have one or two digits. Some of the major area codes in Israel include:
  • 2: Jerusalem
  • 3: Tel Aviv, Giv'atayim, Ramat Gan, and the surrounding area
  • 4: Haifa and the surrounding area
  • 8: Ashdod, Beersheba, and the surrounding area
  • 9: Netanya, Herzliya, and the surrounding area
  • Landline numbers:
  • Landline phone numbers typically have 7 digits. When dialing a landline number within Israel, you'll need to use the area code followed by the 7-digit number (e.g., 02-1234567 for a Jerusalem landline).
  • Mobile phone numbers:
  • Mobile phone numbers in Israel have a 3-digit prefix followed by a 7-digit subscriber number. Some of the commonly used mobile prefixes are:
  • 050: Pelephone
  • 052: Cellcom
  • 053: Hot Mobile
  • 054: Partner (formerly Orange)
  • 055: Golan Telecom, Rami Levy Communications, 019 Mobile
  • When dialing a mobile number within Israel, use the prefix followed by the 7-digit number (e.g., 050-1234567).
  • International dialing format:
  • To dial an Israeli phone number from abroad, use the following format:
  • International access code (varies depending on the country you are dialing from, e.g., 00 or 011) + 972 (Israel's country code) + area code/mobile prefix without the leading zero + the 7-digit phone number
  • For example, if you're calling a landline number in Jerusalem (area code 2) from the United States, you would dial 011 972 2 1234567. For a mobile number (e.g., with a prefix of 050), you would dial 011 972 50 1234567.

The history behind Israeli phone numbers

  • British Mandate of Palestine (1917-1948): The history of Israel's telephone system can be traced back to the British Mandate period when the country was under British rule. During this time, the telephone infrastructure was limited and primarily used for military and government purposes.
  • Formation of Israel (1948): After the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948, the government took over the telecommunications system and started to expand it for civilian use. The Israel Electric Corporation (IEC) played a significant role in operating the telephone system during this period.
  • Establishment of Bezeq (1984): In 1984, the government formed Bezeq, a state-owned telecommunications company, to manage the phone system. Bezeq took over the operations of the IEC and started expanding the telephone infrastructure in the country.
  • Introduction of area codes: As the telephone system expanded, area codes were introduced to simplify the dialing process and accommodate the increasing number of subscribers. Initially, area codes consisted of one or two digits. For example, Jerusalem was assigned the area code 02, while Tel Aviv was assigned 03.
  • Liberalization of the telecommunications market (1990s): In the 1990s, the Israeli government started liberalizing the telecommunications market, allowing private companies to compete with Bezeq. This led to the introduction of new services and providers, such as Cellcom, Partner (Orange), and Pelephone, which focused on mobile services.
  • Numbering plan update (2007): In 2007, the Israeli Ministry of Communications introduced a new numbering plan to accommodate the growing demand for telephone numbers. As a result, all landline and mobile phone numbers were expanded to seven digits, and area codes were changed to three digits. For example, Jerusalem's area code changed from 072 to 02, while Tel Aviv's changed from 073 to 03.
  • Introduction of 10-digit dialing (2010): In 2010, Israel implemented a 10-digit dialing system. The new system requires callers to dial the full 10-digit phone number, including the area code, even when making local calls. This change was aimed at ensuring a sufficient supply of phone numbers for the growing population and the increasing number of mobile devices.
