Area codes in Greece

From Phantis
Jump to: navigation, search

This is an alphabetical list by town of dialing codes in Greece. Before July 2001, none of the area codes ended with zero. Changes were made in November 2002, shortage of phone numbers result in removing the zero and exchange for a two. All codes now start with two but still end with zero.

The country calling code of Greece is 30. The international call prefix depends on the country you are calling from, e.g. 00 for most European countries, and 011 from North America.

The area codes are those without the final zero thus Athens area code is 21. The local numbers starting with 0 are reserved for OTE, thus 210 is a number belonging to OTE in Athens. Nevertheless under those area codes and especially in the big cities, numbers starting with other digits except zero do exist. For example in Athens there are numbers which start with 211 and 212 and belong to private telephone companies. Furthermore, with number portability, a number can start with 210 but may be transferred to another company except OTE.
