Following the break-up of Czechoslovakia in 1993, the successor states, the Czech Republic and Slovakia, continued to share the 42 country code until 28 February 1997, with the Czech Republic then adopting 420 and Slovakia adopting 421.
On September 22, 2002, the Czech Republic adopted a closed numbering plan, with nine-digit numbers used for local and national calls, and the dropping of the trunk code 0.
Before the change, the following arrangements would have been made for calls to Brno:
Local call: xx xx xx xx National call: 05/xx xx xx xx International call: +420 5 xx xx xx xx
After the change, the dialing arrangements for calls to Brno were as follows:
Within Czech Republic: 5xx xxx xxx Outside Czech Republic: +420 5xx xxx xxx
In the case of mobile numbers, which had to be dialed in full, the only change was that the 0 was no longer used:
Within Czech Republic: 602 xxx xxx Outside Czech Republic: +420 602 xxx xxx

Operator for changed numbers (re-numbering) 141 11
Information on air quality 141 10

Weather 141 16
Medical Information 141 20

The first 1-3 digits (after +420) of the telephone number indicates location or network. For mobile phones, since there is number portability, the mobile phone code only indicates the original operator. For example, when a person calls a number starting with 73 (T-mobile) but had been ported to another operator, a short voice message in Czech and English is played stating "you are calling out of a T-mobile network" before the ringing tone.

A toll-free telephone number or freephone number is a telephone number that is billed for all arriving calls instead of incurring charges to the originating telephone subscriber. For the calling party, a call to a toll-free number from a landline is free of charge.
A telephone numbering plan is a type of numbering scheme used in telecommunication to assign telephone numbers to subscriber telephones or other telephony endpoints. Telephone numbers are the addresses of participants in a telephone network, reachable by a system of destination code routing. Telephone numbering plans are defined in each of administrative regions of the public switched telephone network (PSTN) and they are also present in private telephone networks. For public number systems, geographic location plays a role in the sequence of numbers assigned to each telephone subscriber.
Telephone numbers in the United Kingdom are administered by the UK government's Office of Communications (Ofcom). For this purpose, Ofcom established a telephone numbering plan, known as the National Telephone Numbering Plan, which is the system for assigning telephone numbers to subscriber stations.

In other places, landline-numbers consist of a three-digit area code followed by a seven- or eight-digit inner-number. The numbers of mobile phones consist of eleven digits.
