Find a Russia Phone Number or Telephone Code

Find a phone number!The Russia country phone code is 7 (Kazakhstan is also 7). Russia uses a four-level (local, zone, country, international) open dialing plan, but this is due to change to a closed system in 2010. Then you'll just dial the one number from anywhere. At the moment all Russian subscriber phone numbers consist of 10 digits (excluding any prefixes), with 3 digits for an area phone code and a 7-digit individual number which includes a zone code.

At the moment (early 2010), when you make a local phone call in Russia, you just dial the 7 digit phone number. If you make a phone call from Russia to any other Russian city, you dial 8, wait for a long tone, then (usually) dial the code of the city you're phoning to, then the subscriber phone number. In Moscow, the dialing pattern is different (default is Hot-Choice). After dialling "8", you wait for a tone and then dial the operator code (OC) either for a long distance call or an international call (they're different), then the number. So you have to know which operator the phone you're using is registered with.

Mobile (cell) phone numbers in Russia divide into the "federal" and "direct".A quot;Direct" mobile number looks like a normal phone number of the city where the phone is based. The "federal" numbers have a special mobile code, any call to a "federal" number will be the same as calling to another city, and you will need to dial it through the "8 tone procedure mentioned above. Note: if you phone to a mobile from abroad you will pay about 3 times more if you dial a "federal" number!
