Lithuania uses an open telephone numbering plan with all phone numbers having nine digits, including the prefix "8", a 1-3 digit area code and 5-7 digit subscriber telephone number. The current plan was introduced in stages in 2001-2003, replacing Soviet-legacy area codes and altering some subscriber numbers. [1] [2]

Overview

Lithuania uses a total of 47 area codes for landline phones, all beginning with 3, 4 or 5. Within same area code, landlines can be dialed without the prefix and the area code. [3]

Mobile numbers begin with 6, corporate or state institution numbers with 7, toll-free, reverse-charge and share-charge numbers with 8, and premium rate numbers with 9. [3]

Network services numbers begin with "1", dialed without a prefix. This includes numbers beginning with "11", reserved for emergency and special services, such as:

Prefixes

Lithuania uses area code prefix "8", inherited from Soviet-times which was not changed in 2002, but deemed temporary with a view to eventually changing it to "0", as used in many European countries. [3]

Partly due to problems rolling out the national emergency line 112, the country delayed removal of Soviet-legacy emergency numbers 01, 02 and 03 until 2021 October 1, making the "0" prefix unavailable for other uses. [4]

International dialing prefix "00" replaced Soviet-era 810 in 2003.

Lithuania uses +370 country calling code since 1993, replacing area code in Soviet-numbering space +7 012.
