    Technical info on Netherlands phone numbers

    • Country code:
    • The country code for the Netherlands is +31. When dialing a Dutch phone number from abroad, you will need to use this country code followed by the area code and the local number.
    • Area codes:
    • Dutch area codes consist of 2 to 3 digits, with larger cities typically having shorter area codes. The area code is preceded by a '0' when dialing domestically. Some examples of area codes are:
    • Amsterdam: 020
    • Rotterdam: 010
    • The Hague: 070
    • Utrecht: 030
    • Local numbers:
    • Dutch local numbers are typically 6 to 7 digits long, depending on the area code. When combined with the area code, the total length of a Dutch phone number, excluding the country code, is 10 digits.
    • Mobile numbers:
    • Mobile numbers in the Netherlands usually begin with the area codes 06 or 097, followed by a 7- or 8-digit local number. For example, a Dutch mobile number may look like 06-12345678 or 097-12345678.
    • Non-geographic numbers:

    The history behind Dutch phone numbers

    • Early telephone exchanges:
    • The first telephone exchange in the Netherlands was established in 1881 in the city of Amsterdam, followed by the establishment of several other exchanges in various cities. Initially, these exchanges were operated manually, and phone numbers consisted of short numerical sequences assigned to subscribers within the local exchange.
    • Introduction of automated exchanges:
    • As the telephone network expanded, automated exchanges were introduced to replace manual ones. In the 1920s and 1930s, the Netherlands began adopting automated rotary exchanges, which led to the introduction of longer phone numbers. The length of phone numbers varied based on the size of the local exchange.
    • Area codes and national numbering plan:
    • In the mid-20th century, as the telephone network grew further, a national numbering plan was established to standardize phone numbers across the country. This plan included the introduction of area codes for different regions. The area codes were usually two or three digits long, followed by a local number of varying lengths.

    • Mobile phone numbers:
    • With the advent of mobile phones in the late 20th century, separate numbering ranges were assigned for mobile services. Mobile phone numbers in the Netherlands typically begin with "06" followed by eight digits.
    • Transition to 10-digit numbering:
    • As the demand for phone numbers grew, the Netherlands transitioned to a closed 10-digit numbering plan in the 1990s. This allowed for a significant increase in the available number ranges and facilitated the integration of landline and mobile phone services.

    SPA122 and Fritzzbox does not ring / no incomming calls

    May 13, 2016

    My SPA122 and/or Fritzzbox doesn’t ring when a phone is attacht to the device. I can call with the line there is a dial-tone. I was trying both devices to get incomming calls. I didn’t activate stun-server (is that needed?) There could be differences in some settings needed like DTMF for local use? I use in in the Netherlands. The phonenumber works fine on Zoiper but doesn’t always work on BRIA (sometimes doesn’t ring while someone calls) Only Zoiper will receive the calls fine.

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

    How our aesthetically pleasing PBX grid makes configuring your call flow effortless (and fun)
