House, Business or Mobile (Cell) Phone Numbers in France
Finding a French phone number (or "Numéro Téléphone France"), whether for someone’s house or business, is easy if you read French or have the Google tool bar to do the translation, as the major French telephone directories don’t use English.
All French phone numbers are ten digits, starting with a zero if you’re using France Telecom or the number of a provider (e.g. Cegetel uses 7), when dialled from within France, i.e. they include the area phone code. The France country code is 33, and you omit the initial zero or provider’s number when calling from outside the country. "Téléphone portable" (mobile or cell phone to you) numbers will start with 07 from 2010 (they’re currently 06).

To use it put in the last name in "Nom", and optionally the first name in "Prénom". Then enter some geographic area, such as the city, departement or region (click on the question mark for a list of regions), and press "trouver" to search.
