Number length

All telephone numbers are 11 digits long (initial 0 plus ten numbers). The first two or three digits after the zero are the area code. The possibilities are: (0xx) xxxx xxxx (for landlines), 09xx xxx xxxx (for cellphones) and 099xx xxx xxx (for MVNO).

You can replace initial 0 with +98 too.

When making a call within the same landline area code, initial 0 plus the area code can be omitted.

Example for calling

The international call prefix depends on the country you are calling from; e.g., 00 for most European countries, and 011 from North America. For domestic calls (within the country), 0 must be dialed before the area code. The prefix for international calls from Iran is 00 (e.g., for a United States number 00 1 ... should be dialed).

An example for calling telephones in the city of Tehran is as follows:

  • xxxx xxxx (within Tehran, via a landline)
  • 021 xxxx xxxx (within Iran but either outside Tehran or via a cellphone)
  • +98 21 xxxx xxxx (outside Iran)

An example for mobile numbers is as follows:

  • 09xx xxx xxxx (in Iran)
  • +98 9xx xxx xxxx (outside Iran)


Originally, there was only one provider of landline telephony, Telecommunication Company of Iran.

Mobile phones

In order to identify the country which a mobile subscriber belongs to, in wireless telephone networks (GSM, CDMA, UMTS, etc.) Mobile Country Codes (MCC) are used. MCC is allocated by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) and MCC for Iran is 432.

If you intend to use your SIM card, make sure to put your phone on flight mode after using SIM cards from Iranian companies. Irancell, Hamrah Aval and RighTel are the main 3 phone operators in Iran. Fortunately the existing mobile network provides 4G & 5G cellular data coverage in all the small and big cities around the country. Also in most of the main roads between cities you can have access to call and data services.[1]

In order to identify mobile subscriber in a country, Mobile Network Code (MNC) are used. MNC is allocated by the national regulator. (e.g. MNC for IR-MCI is 11)

The Home Network Identity (HNI) is the combination of the MCC and the MNC. This is the number which fully identifies a mobile subscriber. This combination is also known as the PLMN. (e.g. HNI for IR-MCI with MNC = 11 and MCC of Iran = 432 will be 43211)

There are 9 mobile phone providers in Iran, listed below.

IR-MCI (HNI : 43211)

0911-xxx-xxxx (mobile owner lives in Area 1)
0912-xxx-xxxx (mobile owner lives in Area 2)

2nd digit after 091 is the code of mobile number. 09124xxxxxx is code4 or 09121xxxxxx is code1. The lowest code has the highest price, meaning that the owner is (probably) wealthier.
