Formatting an 0121 number

Local telephone numbers in Birmingham are seven digits long. An 0121 number should be displayed in the format:
0121 xxx xxxx or (0121) xxx xxxx

For international callers, use: +44 121 xxx xxxx

Badly-written or misquoted phone numbers sometimes suggest the 'area code' for Birmingham is 01212, 01213, 01214, 01215, 01216, 01217, 01218 or 01219, followed by a six-digit local number; this has never been the case.
