Here in rural Southland, my neighbour just gave me a phone number of someone which looks like this: 03 027*******. That is 03 followed by 027 followed by another seven digits.

 

My assumption was that the "03" prefix (which is normal landline prefix in this area) should be cut off and I should be calling just the 027... thing from mobile.

 

Can anybody confirm that please?

How many digits after the 027 did they give you?

I don't think this is true.

 

According to the NAD, the 03 area does not have a number range starts with 0 (https://www.nad.org.nz/list/15/Industry)

 

Also, there seems to be a lot of spare number ranges so no need to use the 0 to expand the whole range.

 

Also, 027 + seven digits should be a mobile number.  May be someone just accidentally added 03 in front of it.

That is not a valid number

 

It's either 03 xxxxxxx or 027 xxxxxxx
