Telephone Number Plan
Telephone Number Plan Reviews
Boy, do we have numbers Jan 05, 2009
Telephone usage in VietNam continues to grow - both landline and hand / cell phones.
Now there are 8-digit telephone numbers starting in SaiGon/Ho Chi Minh.
This means that:
Area codes can be 0~, 0~~ or 0~~~ (where ~ is a number 1-9)
Telephone numbers can now be 6, 7 OR 8 digits long - 8 digit numbers are only to be found in SaiGon/HCMC.
If you dial a wrong, too-short, number you will hear a recorded message in Vietnamese and English advising you to add a digit to the FRONT of the old number. In other words an OLD number 828-1234 will become, for example, 3-828-1234 or, in its complete format: 08-3828-1234.
Hand / cell users should always enter numbers using the format +84-8-3828-1234 as all systems have automatic routing and will change the +84 into a correct format. The '+' symbol is essential for auto formatting.
