Should I have a Georgia number or a toll free number?

The great thing about Grasshopper is it allows you to have both a local and toll free number with our plans. However, if you are simply looking to make your small business sound bigger, an 800 number is probably what you want.

The first phase begins with new area codes for fixed/wireline numbers activated on 1 March 2011, running permissively until 3 April 2011.

The second phase standardised area codes to three digits on 2 June 2011. ‘2’ will be prepended to the subscriber number portions of fixed/wireline numbers (but not to the area code portion). ‘5’ will be prepended to area codes of mobile/wireless numbers while their subscriber numbers remain unchanged. Fixed numbers based on wireless networks will have ‘7’ prepended to their area codes, e.g. +995 90 xxxxxx becomes +995 790 xxxxxx.

The third phase formally changes the trunk prefix from ‘8’ to ‘0’ and the international prefix from ‘8-10′ to ’00’. Existing short codes of 0xxx format are to migrate to 1xxx form. New 10xx format carrier access codes are also expected.

[note 1] – documents were unclear whether the last 5 or last 4 digits of the subscriber were maintained in the Phase 1 transition in March-April 2011

[note 2] – documents were inconsistent on whether this was changing to +995 570 or +995 770; this may depend on whether the numbers represent a “fixed wireless” service, in which case the latter case would apply (‘7’ prepended to area code)

Other mobile carriers indicated:

20 February 2004 – auction for international access codes

20 August 1995 – new area codes

On 15 April 1995, new area codes were introduced by removing the initial ’88’ from the USSR-era area code. A number in Tbilisi was originally +7 8832 xxxxxx under the USSR system, which became +995 8832 xxxxxx upon introduction of country code +995, then +995 32 xxxxxx in the 1995 renumbering.

There was a permissive mode where both old and new numbering could be used until 20 August 1995.

1994 – introduction of country code +995; withdraw from former USSR +7
