The idea here is that users of these devices should not have to dial a #, or press the "dial" soft key, or wait for the time out, to complete the dial string and have the call placed for most valid numbers.
I have searched, but have not yet found any complete examples for the NZ numbering plan.
Obviously there will be some variations for each local installation, like
is there a prefix to get an outside line i.e. do I need to dial a 1 or 9 to get an outside line, and
what are the local extensions on site i.e. 2 or 3 or more digits, in what range - say X or 3XX etc
This is what I have come up with so far:
0508 xxx xxxS0
0800 xxx xxxS0
0900 xx xxxS0
+ something for local extensions - i.e. [5-7]xS0
That's in a de-constructed layout - 1 rule per line - obviously it needs to be built into something like
I tried searching for the current NZ Numbering plan, but all links to the www.nz.m-co.com site (where it apparently lives) were down.
Does anyone know whether 0800 numbers in NZ are all 6 digits long, or are some of them 7 digits now? Same question for 0508 numbers. I think 0900 numbers are only 5 digits long - but maybe some are 6 digits?
All advice / contributions on this topic would be greatly appreciated.
With any luck we can post a couple of full strings for other people to reference / use.

Might pay to add something for the 015xxx number ranges used by compass and several other companies for their calling cards.

The cost of the call isn't the issue. What about a busines environment where people aren't allowed to make toll calls? There may or may not not be any costs for a company in letting staff use a calling card (depending on the type of plan they're on) so IMHO you're far better off having a standardised dialplan.

0800 and 0508 numbers are all 6 digits each. 0900 numbers are 5 digits.

Just in regards to the NAD numbering plan - m-co are no longer responsible for the NAD which is probably why it's not on their site any longer.

I just had a look around and see m-co still have the stuff on their site
