  North American Numbering Plan - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Despite the "North American" name of the calling plan, Mexico and the Central American countries are not part of the system, although Mexican participation was planned and partly implemented, with direct dialing from the NANP to some parts of Mexico until 1991.
The integrated numbering plan also enables local number portability between fixed and wireless services within a region, allowing users to switch to mobile service while keeping their phone number, which is not a common option in caller-pays systems.
The plans being considered now add a 1 or 0 to the end of the area code or the beginning of the local 7-digit number (or both), which will require mandatory 10-digit dialing (even for local calls) be in place everywhere, well before the transition period.

 Telephone numbering plan - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Together, numbering plans and their component area codes direct telephone calls to particular regions on a public switched telephone network (PSTN), where they are further routed by the local network.
Finland's numbering plan was reorganised in 1996, with the number of area codes being reduced, and the trunk code being changed from 9 to 0.
Before the 1990s, ten-digit numbers were very rare, but they have become increasingly common because of the deregulation of telecommunications, the new 112 emergency number, which required change of all numbers starting with 11, and the creation of a single area code for the Greater Stockholm area.

A toll-free (1-800 -number) telephone number (or Freephone number in the UK, and Freecall number in Australia) is a special telephone number, in which the calling party is not charged for the call by the telephone operator.
Toll-free numbers in the North American Numbering Plan (known as WATS lines) are sometimes called "800 numbers" after the original area code which was used to dial them.
In Italy, toll-free numbers are dialed with the "800" prefix and are commonly referred to as "numeri verdi" (green numbers).

There was an integrated numbering plan among the countries, where area codes beginning with 1, 2 or 3 were in Kenya, area codes beginning with 4 were in Uganda, area codes beginning with 5 and 6 were in Tanzania, and area codes beginning with 7 were for mobile/wireless.
Service development and numbering demands eventually meant that the integrated numbering plan could no longer be maintained among the three countries, and so was effectively ended with Tanzania's national renumbering in July 1999.

 Puslifer Comment Dec. Authorizing North American Numbering Plan with carriers providing service in the 310 area code
Nonetheless, even with the unused numbers identified by the TD Report, there are various constraints on the ability of carriers to make use of these unassigned numbers in meeting current customer service needs.
Even if there are unused numbers in other rate centers, a carrier may be unable to use those numbers to serve customers in a rate center where there is a shortage of central office prefixes.
At the date of the Report, wireless carriers were not able to participate in the current 310 area code number pool, they had to rely on the semi-monthly 310 area code lottery of central office prefix codes to meet their numbering needs.
