Formatting an 01202 number

Local telephone numbers in the Bournemouth area are six digits long. An 01202 number should be displayed in the format: 01202 xxxxxx

For international callers, use: +44 1202 xxxxxx

As local calls in the area must always be dialled using the full number including area code, it is best not to display the code in brackets.

Local calls require full number

Since 1 November 2012 all calls within the 01202 area have had to be made by dialling the full 11-digit number including area code. Calling locally using just the six-digit local number is no longer possible.
