A telephone number in France has 9 digits. As dialed within
France, you dial a trunk prefix *(usually 0),* followed by the
9-digit number, for a total of 10 digits. From outside France, you
dial your international access prefix *(most commonly 00, but
many countries use other prefixes),* plus country code +33, plus
the 9-digit number. On a GSM mobile phone, you can dial +33
*(including the plus sign)* and the 9-digit number.
