Change in numbering system
From 1 April‚ 2008 The Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) announced the successful migration of cellular mobile subscriber numbers from 7 to 8 digits. The dialing codes of all mobile companies were changed from 4 digits to 3 digits.
As part of new Mobile Numbering Plan‚ all mobile numbers in the country would consist of 8 digits by moving the last digit of the dialing code into subscriber number such that the dialing code would be reduced to 3 digits (i.e 0333-51xxxxx would now be 033-351xxxxx).
Numbers of Mobilink‚ Warid‚ Ufone and Telenor will remain the same 11 digits as before. For Paktel - now Zong (China Mobile)‚ Instaphone and SCOM (AJK& Northern Areas)‚ in addition to aforementioned shifting of subscriber numbers‚ digits of their dialing code would also change (i.e. 0304-51xxxxx will be 031-451xxxxx‚ 0320-51xxxxx will be 036-451xxxxx and 0335-51xxxxx will be 035-551xxxxx).
These changes become effective from April 1‚ 2008. Until June 30‚ 2008 all old and new numbers could be dialed. From 1 July 2008 onwards only new numbers will be valid.
