The history behind UAE phone numbers
The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has undergone several changes in its telephone numbering system since the introduction of telecommunication services in the country.
In the early 1970s, the UAE's first telephone exchange was established in Dubai, which had a four-digit numbering system for local calls. By 1977, the UAE adopted a seven-digit numbering system, with each emirate having its own unique code. Dubai's code was "04," Abu Dhabi's was "02," Sharjah's was "06," and so on.
In 1993, the UAE's telephone numbering system was expanded to eight digits, with the addition of a "2" to the beginning of all local numbers. This allowed for more numbers to be assigned to mobile phones, which were becoming increasingly popular.
In 2000, the UAE introduced the "050" prefix for mobile phone numbers, followed by the "055" prefix in 2002. These prefixes allowed for the allocation of more mobile phone numbers to meet the growing demand for mobile phone services.
In 2006, the UAE introduced a new numbering plan, which simplified the dialing process for local calls by removing the need for an area code. This meant that all local numbers could be dialed using just seven digits, regardless of the emirate or city where the number was located.
In 2010, the UAE introduced the "600" prefix for non-geographic numbers, such as those used for customer service and other business-related purposes.
Technical info on UAE phone numbers
In the United Arab Emirates (UAE), phone numbers follow a specific format. The country code for the UAE is +971, and phone numbers have nine digits. The first two digits of the phone number indicate the mobile network operator, while the remaining seven digits are unique to each individual number.
Landline numbers in the UAE also have nine digits, but they do not have a specific area code. To call a mobile or landline number in the UAE from outside the country, the caller must first dial the international access code for their country, followed by the UAE country code and then the nine-digit phone number.
