Hi John.

 

In our ARS tables for the PBX systems I look after  the number length for 0210XXXXXX is a total of 10 digits.  One of our dealer techs tells me that  there is a code of 02102XXXXXX a total of 11 digits.  Is this correct??




Regards,

Old3eyes

Go to the Vodafone forums and put the question.

JohnR left GZ.

No, he hasn't left Vodafone, altho I can tell you he was put off this forum by some rather nasty comments made towards him (mostly by SteveON), which I thought was a great loss - I always found John really good and very helpful.

Still at Vodafone, just doesn't participate here due to a small group of unreasonably critical and overly vocal users.

It can be from 9 to 11 digits (with 021 prefix) or 11 to 13 (with +64 prefix):

Yep huge loss to The forum, not often you get a technical specialist actively assiting but some people where more worried about perceived "bluntness"... so it seems some people prefer the Marketing talk rather than the plain speak technical info....

Big Big loss....

My understanding is all numbers beginning with 0 are 8 digits, ie 0210xxxxxxx however the NAD site is down at present so I can't check. I've had that in my Linksys provisiong stuff since earlier in the year and also have it deployed on all my sites and nobody has raised any issues.

I think confusion can occur at times when official sites (such as the NAD) count digits and exclude the 0 since this is only an access code. Technically these are 10 digit numbers (2+8).

I'm seeing it more and more on these forums... users with low post counts expecting over the top service from an advanced tech at a telco or similar, and then slagging off when they don't get the response they want, or it's not worded how they like.

We all lose as they n00b doesn't get the point and the go-to-guy leaves or doesn't bother responding to any further questions.  If it was up to me, I'd be banning en masse.

(this isn't directed to those who do appreciate and are thankful for the gems that exist in some of the bigger companies, that help us all out, off their own backs)

/end rant.
