PTCL: new city code required

hi

i am trying to call an old friend of mine, but i dont have the fresh code or any prefixes that were applied.

please help me out, the number is in gujranwala.

the old one was : 055 - 256xxx

Now there are 99 codes in total. Download the .xls file below to see those codes

PTCL Nationwide Dialing Codes (99 All).xls

boss, thanks for the code. i see that gujranwala is 055 still.

any idea wat they'd be adding before the number, since the number is 6-digit which have. and now all numbers in gujranwala are 7-digit. Thanks.

^Sorry

someone from Gujranwala can tell this

If I'm not wrong, don't you add the preceeding number again? I know they did this for Rawalpindi and Islamabad once upon a time.

For e.g., if it's 5xxxxx, then that will become 55xxxxx.

But don't take my word for it though. You can try and see if it works.

I think the old dialing cod for Gujranwala was 0431. not 055.

055 is the new one. as most of the numbers recently were standardized by PTCL as 3 digit city code-3 digit exchange number-4 digit landline number like xxx-xxx-xxxx

so you would likely have to look for middle 3 digits.

as per my knowledge. the numbers were partitioned like below.

last 4 digits were picked of the old number

and new 3 digit number of exchanges were added in front of above 4 numbers

and the then the new dialing code obviously

as I just got to know about the following exchange numbers are of Gujranwala

385, 386, 422, 423, 428, 455

I am not sure about above numbers. and there could be more exchanges in Gujranwala.

and some of the above numbers might also be of V-Fone
