Technical info on Mexico phone numbers
- Mexican phone numbers follow a standardized format and numbering plan regulated by the Federal Telecommunications Institute (Instituto Federal de Telecomunicaciones, or IFT).
- Country code: Mexico's country code is +52. To call a Mexican phone number from outside the country, you need to dial the international access code (e.g., 011 from the United States and Canada) followed by the country code (52).
- Numbering plan: The current numbering plan in Mexico is based on the ITU E.164 international numbering standard. As of August 3, 2019, Mexico has transitioned to a uniform 10-digit numbering format for both landline and mobile numbers.
- Number format: Mexican phone numbers are typically written as follows: +52 (AAA) NNN-NNNN, where:
- +52 represents the country code for Mexico
- AAA represents the 3-digit area code (formerly known as the long-distance code)
- NNN-NNNN represents the 7-digit local number
- Area codes: Mexico has approximately 370 area codes, which are assigned based on geographic location. Major cities and metropolitan areas have shorter area codes, while smaller cities and rural areas have longer ones. For instance, Mexico City has the area code 55, while Oaxaca has the area code 951.
- Mobile numbers: Mobile numbers in Mexico also follow the 10-digit format. Previously, mobile numbers had an additional "1" after the country code (e.g., +52 1 AAA NNN-NNNN), but this was removed during the 2019 numbering plan update. As a result, there is no longer a distinction between mobile and landline numbers in the numbering format.
- Special numbers: Mexico also has special numbers for emergency services, information services, and other non-geographic services
- Emergency numbers: 911 (Contact us directly to add emergency services to your mexico FlyNumber, additional fees apply)
- Toll-free numbers: 800 or 888, followed by a 7-digit number (e.g., 800-NNN-NNNN)
- Premium-rate numbers: 900, followed by a 7-digit number (e.g., 900-NNN-NNNN)
The history behind Mexican phone numbers
- Early days (late 19th century to mid-20th century): Mexico's telephone system was introduced in the late 19th century, but it took several decades for the network to grow and become more widespread. During this period, phone numbers were relatively short, usually consisting of just a few digits.
- Area codes introduction (mid-20th century): As the telephone network expanded, it became necessary to introduce area codes to efficiently route calls between different regions. In Mexico, these were three-digit codes that would be dialed before the local phone number. This system allowed for better organization and more efficient call routing.
- The 8-digit numbering plan (mid-1990s): In the mid-1990s, Mexico transitioned to an 8-digit numbering plan for landline phones. This change was necessary due to the rapid growth of the telephone network and the need to accommodate more numbers. The new system consisted of a three-digit area code, followed by a five-digit local number.
- Introduction of mobile phone numbers (late 1990s to early 2000s): With the advent of mobile phones, Mexico introduced dedicated prefixes for mobile phone numbers. Initially, mobile numbers were 10 digits long, including a two-digit prefix (starting with '044' for local calls and '045' for long-distance calls) followed by the area code and the local number.
- 10-digit numbering plan (2019): In August 2019, Mexico implemented a new, simplified 10-digit numbering plan for both landline and mobile phones. Under this plan, all phone numbers, regardless of their type, have 10 digits, consisting of a three-digit area code and a seven-digit local number. The old prefixes for mobile phones ('044' and '045') were phased out, and callers now dial the 10-digit number directly, regardless of whether they are calling a landline or a mobile phone.
