If it's about VoIP, SIP or Internet Telephony but it doesn't seem to fit anywhere else, post it here.

I've always had an 0161 Manchester number but I've noticed there are numbers as long as 0190224 for Wolverhampton. Are local numbers in Wolverhampton 6 digits in length?

I am trying to familiarize myself with every possible length of UK phone number and also trying to discover if there are any 'peculiar' numbers I should know about.

Any input on this topic would be appreciated.

Wolverhampton local numbers are indeed 6 digits long. (11 Digits in total if you add the area code of 01902)

If I had a pots line with BT and I lived in Wolverhampton, my BT number would be 01902123456. When calling this number within the Wolverhampton area I can drop the 01902 and simply dial 123456. If calling from Swansea which has the area code 01792, I would need to enter the full number 01902123456.

There are no four digit local numbers anymore - We have service numbers such as 1471 or 1571 which connect you to services such as Call Return and Voicemail.

Local numbers here in Swansea are also 6 digits in length, 6 digits plus an area code of 5 digits are the most common this way. (6+4 = 11 digits all in)

020 numbers should be displayed in the format 020 xxxx xxxx or (020) xxxx xxxx, with the first space always placed between '020' and the eight-digit local number. http://www.area-codes.org.uk/020-area-code.php

There are special numbers such as 0800 1111 and 0845 4647. The UK OBIHAI dialplan covers all of these and more.

I should of pointed out that if I wanted to call 01902123456 from a mobile number or VoIP provider then I have to enter the full number including area code of 01902123456 to place my call. Even if my VoIP provider supplies me with a Wolverhampton number and I'm located in the Wolverhampton area.

I would need to alter my VoIP equipments DigiMap to allow for local number calling.
