The area code prefix assigns the phone number of a subscriber to a specific location. Other types of prefix exist in addition to the area code: International country prefixes, the prefixes of mobile phone providers and the prefixes of various services. These are combined to suit several purposes. When calling from one country to another in cases where the recipient of the call has a landline, the country prefix is combined with the area code and the number of the subscriber. For the fictitious phone number 6048084, the area code 26 (Nampula) and the Country code 011258 the number to dial is 011258 26 6048084. If the call is to a mobile device, the Country code is combined with the mobile service provider's prefix and the number of the subscriber. If a call is made to a subscriber in the same country, the Country code can be omitted. In the case of national calls from one landline to another, the area code can also be omitted in many countries when both subscribers have the same area code. Particularly in countries where subscribers are able to keep the same telephone number after moving to another location or city, the area code – in this case 26 – must of course also be dialled.
Services that are accessed through service prefixes may incur charges not only from telecommunication companies, but also from the companies that offer these services. As a result, a number of dubious companies offer services that are of little use but incur high fees. In order to increase their profits still further, such services attempt to keep callers on the line for as long as possible. The supervisory authorities regularly take action against such providers, but that cannot be relied upon. In addition to special numbers that can be identified by means of their prefixes, there are also speed-dial numbers. The most well-known are the emergency number 112 in Europe and 911 in North America. These numbers can be used nationwide and need no prefixes, i.e. no Country code +258 (011258) or area code 26 (Nampula).
