This article details the use of telephone numbers in Austria.
There are no standard lengths for either area codes or subscribers' numbers in Austria, meaning that some subscribers' numbers may be as short as three digits. Larger towns have shorter area codes permitting longer subscriber numbers in that area. Some examples:
|00||International call prefix|
|112||General emergency call|
|118xxx||Directory assistance services|
|147||Telephone counselling for children (Rat auf Draht)|
|15xx||Generic information services (time etc.)|
|050x||Virtual private network (VPN)|
|0650||Cell phones (Telering)|
|0660||Cell phones (Drei)|
|0664||Cell phones (A1)|
|0676||Cell phones (T-Mobile)|
|0680||Cell phones (BoB)|
|0681||Cell phones (Yesss)|
|0688||Cell phones (Tele2)|
|0699||Cell phones (Orange Austria / Yesss)|
|0718||Internet dial-up numbers|
|0720||Location independent landline numbers|
|0780||Convergent services with ENUM (VoIP)|
|0800||National free call|
|00800||International free call|
|0804||Internet dial-up numbers|
The number-assignment of the cell phones can vary, due to number portability.
- Yesss and Tele2 are using the network-infrastructure of Orange. Yesss is a discount-offer of Orange.
- BoB is a discount-offer of A1 and therefore uses its network-infrastructure.
- Since 2006 Telering is fully owned by and integrated into T-Mobile and therefore uses its network-infrastructure.

Famous quotes containing the words austria, telephone and/or numbers:
“All the terrors of the French Republic, which held Austria in awe, were unable to command her diplomacy. But Napoleon sent to Vienna M. de Narbonne, one of the old noblesse, with the morals, manners, and name of that interest, saying, that it was indispensable to send to the old aristocracy of Europe men of the same connection, which, in fact, constitutes a sort of free- masonry. M. de Narbonne, in less than a fortnight, penetrated all the secrets of the imperial cabinet.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson (18031882)
“My sole inspiration is a telephone call from a director.”
—Cole Porter (18931964)
“And when all bodies meet
In Lethe to be drowned,
Then only numbers sweet
With endless life are crowned.”
—Robert Herrick (15911674)
