There are no standard lengths

<P>There are no standard lengths for either area codes or subscribers' numbers in Germany, meaning that some subscribers' numbers may be as short as two digits.Phone numbers in Germany generally have a variable length: except for some nongeographic area codes, whose subscriber numbers use a fixed format, it is not possible to determine unambiguously the end of a Cheap NFL Jerseys phone number from a prefix or the digits already dialled. This unique feature also allows to extend the length of phone numbers without revoking or changing existing numbers.There are 5200 geographical area codes, the length of which varies from two to five digits (not including the 0 trunk code), with fivedigit area codes only being assigned in the New States (prefix 03). In general, geographic area codes start with digits (0)2 to (0)9, whereas other nongeographic "area codes" are assigned to (0)1 and network services to 11:[1]Main article: Area codes in GermanyGeographic area codes have a length of two to five digits (not including the 0 trunk code). The maximum total length is eleven digits (not including the 0 trunk code).Geographic numbers are wholesale jerseys assigned to carriers in blocks, from which these carriers can make derivative assignments to subscribers.Subscriber numbers do not start with 0 or 11 and can be called directly from landlines within the same geographic area code.Originally, the first digits following the area code would indicate a smaller area within these area codes or the type of the subscriber line (analogue or ISDN). However, this is no longer Cheap NFL Jerseys true as subscribers can keep their numbers when moving within an area code or when switching from analogue to ISDN. Further, new carriers assign numbers from different blocks.This is the format used for the four largest geographic areas in Germany: Berlin (030), Hamburg (040), Frankfurt (069) and Munich (089). Newly assigned numbers have a length of eight digits for the local subscriber number, yielding a total length of ten digits (not including the 0 trunk code). This is shorter than the maximum of eleven digits in other areas in order to avoid local numbers to be longer than eight digits. Numbers assigned in the past, which are generally grandfathered, may be as short as five digits.Medical emergencies. This number is being phased out as an emergency number in favour of the Europewide 112, with 19222 being retained for nonemergency medical transports. Conceptually, this number is not an emergency number but a local number assigned uniformly in all geographic area codes. This requires dialling the area code from mobile phones or other nongeographic lines. (Originally, the block 19xxx was used for local numbers assigned uniformly in all or several geographic area codes. All other allocations have already been converted to ordinary geographic numbers.)"+37" redirects here. For current country dialling codes starting with +37, see List of country dialling codes+37.Before the German reunification, West Germany (including West Berlin) used country code +49 and East Germany used country code +37, each with its separate area codes and telephone networks. In 1992, two years after reunification, the phone networks were merged under country code +49.Geographic numbers in the New States were assigned area codes starting with 03, followed by the former East German area code (without the initial 0). Thus, Leipzig, for example, which had used East German area code 041, was assigned the new area code 0341. Area Cheap Jerseys code 030, formerly used by West Berlin, was assigned to the entire reunified Berlin.The German phone network became fully digitised in 1997, allowing more flexible use of the numbering space.</P>
