    The history behind Taiwanese phone numbers

    The history of Taiwan phone numbers dates back to the early 20th century. In 1926, the Taiwan Telephone Company was established, and it began to provide telephone services in Taiwan. At that time, the phone numbers were made up of four digits.

    In 1946, after the end of World War II, Taiwan was handed over from Japan to the Republic of China. The phone system was modernized, and a new numbering system was introduced. The phone numbers were now made up of five digits.

    As the population of Taiwan grew and demand for phone service increased, the government decided to switch to a seven-digit numbering system in 1979. This allowed for more phone numbers to be assigned to accommodate the increasing number of users.

    In the 1990s, with the advent of mobile phones, a new series of mobile phone numbers was introduced. These numbers began with the prefix "09," and they were seven digits long.

    In 2002, the government of Taiwan introduced a new area code system to accommodate the growing number of phone users. The new system divided Taiwan into several regions, each with its own area code. This made it easier to identify the location of the person calling or being called.

    Technical info on Taiwanese phone numbers

    Taiwanese phone numbers are made up of 10 digits, including the area code. The area code varies depending on the location of the phone number, with Taipei having the area code of 02, and other major cities such as Taichung, Tainan, and Kaohsiung having their own unique area codes. When dialing a Taiwanese phone number from outside the country, the country code for Taiwan (+886) must be dialed first.

    In recent years, the Taiwanese government has introduced new area codes due to the growing demand for phone numbers. These new area codes include 06, 07, and 08, which were previously not used for phone numbers. Additionally, phone numbers starting with 0800 are toll-free and can be used for customer service or other business purposes.

    It's important to note that Taiwanese phone numbers do not have any spacing or hyphens, and are typically written in a continuous string of 10 digits. This can make it difficult for non-native speakers to remember and dial the correct phone number. However, many smartphones and mobile devices can automatically add the correct formatting for Taiwanese phone numbers when they are entered into contacts or dialed.
