# All the Cellular Services Codes are Changing

According to PTA from 1st April all the codes will be changed from 7 to 8 digits. From 1st to 30 June2008 numbers can be dialed in both ways (old and new). From 1st July only new number will work. Callers will dial the same old 11 digit number (ie: 0333-1234567) however code will be changed from 4 to 3 digits (ie:033).

source news paper

if codes are changed from 4 to 3 digits then how is the complete number going from 7 to 8 digits? 2 more extra digits being added? Can someone explain what exactly happens?

ok i looked up the website of pta and this is what i found out please click the above link.

0333 previous 4 digit code and 2223334 previous 7 digit number hence number is 0333-2223334

033 new 3 digits code and 32223334 new 8 digit number. 033-32223334 new number

this is the case i think

the thing i dont understand why they are doing it.

The number would be same , wohi baat dum ko chahy agay se pakro ya pechay se , you will only need to edit CMPak numbers because they are changing the code from 030 to 031

Why they are reducing the no.

bcoz every operator is strating a new code every now and then u can even look at mobilink they have reached to 0308 from 0300 so to reduce so much dialling code and also catters the larger no people they have reduced the dialling code and add the last digit to the main no.

remmember the time when we use to say yaar i have a mobilink no 1234567 and the other person automatically understand that u have 03001234567 no, but today if any one ask the other persons no he say like i have a mobilink's 03061234567 and so on.

so from now u can easily understand when other tells u the no like i have a mobilink no 01234567 u will automatically write it 030-01234567 no need to ask which code.

i hope all of u understand it,

so from now u can easily understand when other tells u the no like i have a mobilink no 01234567 u will know that 030 is the mobilinks code

i hope all of u understand it,
