Just had to enter my mobile number into a Microsoft Certification Website that has an old style phone entry field with a “required” area code.
So it prompted the question. Do mobile phones have an area code if so what is it?
So for Australia the mobile “area code” is 4 followed by 9 numbers. So looking at everyones Australian mobile numbers prefixes I can see it is true.
This is a fix for a rare corner case which only a few will ever worry about. Just glad I’m not blogging for clicks and traffic.
