Portugal Phone Number, Portugal Telephone Code, Portugal Telephone Directory
Finding a phone number for a house or business, or a mobile (cell) phone number in Portugal was quite straightforward, not so easy now. As far as a Portugal telephone directory is concerned, Portugal Telecom (PT) had an effective monopoly, but in June 2015 it was bought by the Altice Group based in France. Now the white and yellow pages sites seem to have disappeared.
The Portugal telephone country code is 351, and then you simply dial the subscriber phone number. Previously, the trunk prefix was ‘0’, but this was dropped, and the phone area code, prefixed by the digit ‘2’ was incorporated into the subscriber’s number, so now a nine-digit number is used for all calls. Check out this page on Wikipedia for more details and area codes
Mobile phone numbers in Portugal also changed, with the digits ‘9T’ replacing the prefix ‘093T’, where ‘T’ is a digit specific to a mobile operator: Optimus – 93 TMN – 96 Vodafone – 91.

As mentioned above, these official directory sites have disappeared and other online “white pages” etc. sites just seem to send you to Google.pt or have no real content (cf. portuguesetelephones.com). I haven’t had much luck with Altice so I’m afraid my phone number search for Portugal is limited to the yellow pages beta site at the moment, sorry. If you have any better luck, please let me know!
