And B represents the dialing zone where the number is located. Each department belongs to only one dialing zone:

International dialing

To dial internationally from Colombia, subscribers dial using the pattern:

Where A represents the long-distance carrier, as described above.

Mobile phone numbers follow the pattern:

  • 03-MMM-XXX-XXXX when calling from any landline phone
  • 57-MMM-XXX-XXXX when calling from outside Colombia

Where MMM usually represents the access code for one of the country's mobile phone operators. Since Colombia adopted the mobile number portability, these codes may not be associated with the current operators.

Toll-free service

Toll-free numbers follow the pattern:

  • 01-800-XXX-XXXX[2]

Before 2002, the format was 9800-XXXXXX. When the current format was adopted in that year, existing toll-free numbers were given the format 01-800-0XX-XXXX. These numbers were advertised with the grouping 01-8000-XX-XXX, leading many people to erroneously believe that the general prefix for toll-free numbers is 01-8000.
