The following telephone numbers in Chile are geographic area codes for all national and international calls terminating in Chile.
In 2012 and 2013, land lines were renumbered, with an additional digit 2 prepended. The change was rolled out gradually by area code; first in Santiago (Region Metropolitana) and Arica in late 2012, then throughout all remaining regions between March and July 2013.
Now when calling a landline, area code and an extra 2 are always added at the beginning of the number, or between the area code and number. E.g. a formerly seven digit Santiago number (02) XXX XXXX is now 22XXX XXXX, and a formerly six digit Punta Arenas number (061) YYY YYY is now 612YYY YYY.
There are a number of special numbers for public services, and they are in the format 1XY. The most important ones are:
In Chile it is necessary to choose the carrier for international long distance calls every time and therefore to obtain the best rate for any destination. Long distance carriers have a prefix that must be dialed when calling long distance:
The current carrier codes are:
Mobile network: 9 digits, starting with a 9 plus 8 digits starting with 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4 or 3.
Calls from any phone to mobile phones have to use the full nine digits number: e.g.: 99X-XXX-XXX, 98X-XXX-XXX, 97X-XXX-XXX, 96X-XXX-XXX, 95X-XXX-XXX or 94X-XXX-XXX
The Undersecretariat of Telecommunications (Subtel) created the possibility of telephone service using Internet as a connection technology. The dialing plan was modified to have a zone and uses the prefix 44, resulting in numbers such as 044XXXXXXXX for members using IP Telephony.
