These are the new numbers effective on october. From the picture it shows that Zain numbers will begin with a 9, Wataniya with a 6, 2 for the landlines and Commercial lines will begin with 1.
Is this from a confirmed source… Doesn’t show up on MOC or Wataniya sites.
عندي واحد من الاهل يشتغل بوزارة المواصلات يقول خلصوا الارقام علشان جذي زايدين رقم
شدعوه يبه احنا جم واحد علشان تخلص الارقام ؟ 🙂
WoooW that will make my land line number kinda unique, since it starts with 2 and ends with double 2’s. With the new added number it will be 22XXXX22 🙂
But is it true will be effective on Oct?
تمام ، رقمي ما راح يخترب بيظل حلو
Yes its official, also adding the new digit will serve the new mobile company, starting from October the mobile telcos will start adding a digit then a month later land lines will follow.
i have made a small excel sheet to update my Address book if you are interested in trying it out i posted it on my blog http://www.q8i.org
From the picture we can see that Zain currently has 2,000,000 numbers while Wataniya has 1,650,000
thanks … but now i got around 500 numbers to update … 🙁
