How to avoid dialling a wrong number next week
Tomorrow is Phoneday, the biggest change to telephone numbers for 25 years. Here is what you need to know
Saturday 15 April 1995
Five major cities will be given completely new codes, and will have an extra digit added to the front of all numbers, in order to meet the exceptionally high demand for telephone services in those areas.
On Phoneday, the international code for making a call from the United Kingdom will also change, from "010" to "00" as part of a European harmonisation programme.
Some codes, such as 0800 for freephone numbers, including British Telecom's Phoneday helpline on 0800 01 01 01, 0860 for mobile phones and 0891 information and entertainment services, will not be changing on Phoneday.
BT call charges are not affected by any of these code changes.
