A telephone numbering plan is a system used in telecommunications to give telephone numbers to customers and to route telephone calls in a telephone network. A closed numbering plan imposes a fixed length to numbers, such as in North America (10-digit). An open numbering plan may have telephone numbers that vary in length. A dial plan establishes the type of telephone number in a given area.

Japan's telephone numbering plan -- I just submitted a section on it and it's a bit long. Should I make an independent article about it? - 188.8.131.52 21:00, August 29, 2004
..... NEW ENTRY TO THIS PAGE: Actually, there is a difference in open and closed between dialing plans and numbering plans. An open numbering plan means that there is no uniformity of number and area code length. Britain still is, to some extent, an open numbering plan. A closed numbering plan means that there is uniformity. North America and Australia are examples of a closed numbering plan. An open dialing plan means that the area code is not always required in dialing. Nor
There may be some inconsistences in Spanish prefixes: 1. I don't know any 800 xxx xxx toll-free phone 2. About 80x xxx xxx, shared-cost, I only know 803, 806 and 807, which are at premium rates. 3. I think most of old 90x prefixes still apply
Closed telephone numbering plan redirects to this article, but nowhere in Telephone numbering plan is "closed telephone numbering plan" defined. The second paragraph acknowledges that a distinction is made between open and closed numbering plans, but it does not attempt to explain what they are. The term "closed numbering plan" is then used twice more, without definition. I had to go to the history of the old Closed telephone numbering plan article to find out what it means. In 2011, when the re
The telephone numbering plans of the United States and Canada are united under the North American Numbering Plan; that means the codes are the same throughout the Numbering Plan. I have reworded the sentence in the article.
This is a list of North American telephone area codes in effect for the North American Numbering Plan. The area to which an area code is officially assigned is known as a Numbering Plan Area. An area code is part of a telephone number in the United States, Canada, and the Caribbean. It is the part of the telephone number after the county code. For example, in the number 1-562-555-5555, the 1 is the country code, and 562 is the area code. An area code is typically assigned to a state, city or regStateCodes205 (Birmingham, Tuscaloosa) 251 (Mobile, Jackson, Gulf Shores) 256/938 (Huntsville, Anniston, Florence) 334 (Montgomery, Dothan, Selma)907 (all of Alaska)480 (Mesa, Scottsdale, Tempe) 520 (Tucson, Nogales, Bisbee) 602 (Phoenix) 623 (Glendale, Sun City, Peoria) 928 (Flagstaff, Yuma, Prescott)479 (Fayetteville, Fort Smith) 501 (Little Rock, Hot Springs) 870 (Pine Bluff, Jonesboro, Texarkana)

The Australian telephone numbering plan describes the allocation of phone numbers in Australia. It has changed many times, the most recent major reorganisation by the Australian Communications and Media Authority taking place between 1994 and 1998.
For landline telephony, Australia is now geographically divided into four large areas, most of which cover more than one State and/or Territory. All "Local" telephone numbers within these four areas are of eight digits, consisting of a four digit "Exchange" code plus a four digit number. The "National 'Significant' Number" consists of a single digit "Area" code followed by the "Local" eight digit number – a total of nine digits. Within Australia, to access the "Number" of a landline ...

The numerical formats of landlines and mobile phones are different: landlines have area-codes, whereas mobile phones do not. In major cities, landline-numbers consist of a two-digit area code followed by an eight-digit inner-number. In other places, landline-numbers consist of a three-digit area code followed by a seven- or eight-digit inner-number. The numbers of mobile phones consist of eleven digits. When o
