    The history behind Portuguese phone numbers

    The history of Portugal phone numbers dates back to the early 20th century. In 1902, the first telephone exchange was established in Lisbon, which allowed people to make local and international calls. At the time, the numbering system was relatively simple, with phone numbers consisting of two or three digits.

    Over time, the demand for telephone services grew, and in the 1920s, the Portuguese government began to establish a national telecommunications network. As part of this effort, a new numbering system was introduced, which included four-digit phone numbers.

    In the following decades, the telecommunications network continued to expand, and new technologies, such as automatic dialing and direct-dial international calls, were introduced. In 1968, a new numbering plan was introduced, which included seven-digit phone numbers, with the first two digits indicating the geographic region and the remaining five digits assigned to individual phone lines.

    In the 1990s and early 2000s, Portugal underwent a series of telecommunications reforms, which led to the privatization of the telecommunications sector and the introduction of new technologies, such as mobile phones and the internet.

    Technical info on Portugal phone numbers

    Portuguese phone numbers typically consist of nine digits, with the first two digits representing the area code. The area code varies depending on the region in Portugal, with Lisbon having the code 21, Porto having the code 22, and Faro having the code 289, among others. The remaining seven digits are specific to each individual phone number. In Portugal, mobile phone numbers also consist of nine digits, but they begin with a 9.

    To dial a Portuguese phone number from another country, the international code for Portugal (+351) must be added before the area code and phone number. It is important to note that some phone numbers in Portugal may require an additional digit, such as a 2 or 9, to be dialed before the area code, depending on the type of line or service being used.

    Creating local number Europe-USA

    Apr 13, 2016


    I have a question. I live in Poland,Europe and would like to receive calls from someone who lives in Arizona,US. If I create a local number, is it possible that it will be redirected to my cell phone? Does it really cost 2,95$ without any hidden fees? And can I actually create an account without any problems, like showing any kind of documents which would show that I’m not the USA citizen? Does the person who calls me sees that I use that phone forwarding or is it completely unnoticeable in any way?

    Thank you for your help.

    Caller's number no longer coming through

    Mar 28, 2016

    Did something change ?

    Starting about ~3-4 weeks ago, I stopped getting the caller’s number as the incoming number.
    Before that, when a call came in, the incoming number was the caller’s number.
    Now, the incoming number is some random Spanish number (I’m in Portugal).

    Here’s how the incoming call looks here in Portugal when a call comes in from my (347) XXX-XXXX fly number:

    ^^ that’s a call to my flynumber forwarding to me. I have no idea what that Spanish number is.

    The way it used to look was the incoming # was the number of the person calling.
    That’s what I get from Skype forwarding, and is how flynumber used to work for me:

    NYC phone numbers -Inside scoop

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)
