Telephone numbers in Malaysia
Country Code : +60 -
International Call Prefix : 00 -
Telephone numbers in Malaysia are regulated by the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC).
Calls to Singapore do not require international dialing; calls are made using the 02 - access code. Similarly, calls to Brunei from East Malaysia can be made using the 080 - access codem but calls from Peninsular Malaysia to Brunei require the international prefix 00673 - .
  • Geographic area codes
  • Geographic (fixed line) area codes are, excluding the STD prefix 0, one digit in Peninsular Malaysia (area codes 3 to 7 and 9) and two digits in East Malaysia (area codes 8x). In Peninsular Malaysia, an area code is usually shared by multiple states and territories and roughly follows state borders. The two East Malaysian states, Sabah and Sarawak, are split into multiple area codes.
    Fixed line subscriber numbers are seven digits in Peninsular Malaysia (except Selangor, Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya, i.e. area code 3) and six digits in East Malaysia. Prior to 1999, subscriber numbers were seven digits in Kuala Lumpur, Putrajaya and Selangor. From 1999 to 2001, subscriber numbers in these areas were expanded to eight digits in phases to meet new demands. The first digit of a subscriber number is associated with a specific area in the area code. In Selangor, Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya, the second digit of a subscriber number identifies the service provider, which is almost always Telekom Malaysia (TM), as TM holds a near-monopoly of the Malaysian fixed line market.
    Thus, a full national number is 10 digits in area code 3 and 9 digits elsewhere, including the STD prefix 0. When writing a telephone number with the area code, the area code and subscriber number is separated with a hyphen. Examples:
    A number 21345678 in Kuala Lumpur: 03-21345678
    A number 2134567 in Ipoh, Perak : 05-2134567
    A number 213456 in Kuching, Sarawak : 082-213456
    Malaysia employs a open dialing plan, which means calling within the area code does not require the area code to be dialed, apart from mobile phone calls. Calls to and from mobile phones requires full national dialing. e.g. When calling a number 21345678 in Kuala Lumpur (03) from a fixed line phone:
    Within Selangor, Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya: 21345678
    Outside Selangor, Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya: 03-21345678
    Outside Malaysia: +60-3-21345678 (the initial 0 of the area code is omitted

    086 - Bintulu, Belaga (Sarawak
    087 - Inner District (Sabah) and Federal Territory of Labuan

    09 - Kelantan, Pahang (except Cameron Highlands) and Terengganu
  • Mobile phone codes and IP telephony
  • Mobile phone codes and IP telephony codes are in the area code 1, ranging from 2 to 3 digits excluding the leading zero.
    Originally, each mobile phone operator is issued one mobile phone code. Through a series of mergers, there are currently three major mobile phone operators: Celcom (a subsidiary of TM), Maxis and DiGi. As existing numbers begin to run out, the three mobile phone operators are assigned numbers in 014 code distinguished by the first digit of the subscriber number.
    A mobile phone number consist of a mobile phone code and a seven-digit subscriber number. Therefore, a mobile phone number is written as 01x-xxxxxxx. Calling from mobile phones to fixed lines and vice versa requires full national dialing. Calls between mobile require the full national number, regardless if both parties are in the same mobile phone code. Calling from outside Malaysia requires the leading zero to be dropped.
    Mobile phones in Malaysia uses 900/1800MHz for GSM and 2100MHz for WCDMA. Domestic roaming service is available free within Malaysia in places where there is only a single transmitter in place due to restrictions.
    The dismantling of analogue services ART450 and ATUR800 as well as CDMA fixed line replacements for remote users by Mobikom (a subsidiary of Sapura) for Telekom Malaysia released the 010, 011 and 018 numbering for Mobile Virtual Numbering Operator (MVNO) services. 014 prefixes are also released to GSM900 and GSM1800 services due to the shortage of numbers.
    As codes are being exhausted, a new range, 015x is made available for assignment. Despite the length of the code, subscriber numbers are seven digits, resulting in an 11-digit national number including the leading zero. The two major ISP, TMNet and Jaring are assigned numbers in the 0154 prefix to provide VoIP (also known as Telephony Service over IP, TSoIP) service.
    Jaring, MIMOS as a winning bidder for 3G services, but has yet to use up a prefix. U Mobile (formerly MiTV), part of Berjaya Holdings, too won a 3G-only license and thus used the 018 prefix with 7 numbers (branded as U Mobile). Celcom also offers satellite calls system, thus offering 99.99% coverage in outdoor Malaysia using Vodafone backbones.

  • Number portability
  • Recently, the MCMC announced the mobile number portability (MNP) service for mobile carriers. Thus, subscribers are allowed to retain their mobile numbers when they switch to another service provider, in a bid to increase market competition. Therefore, the mobile number prefix only indicates the original service provider.
    Number portability has not been offered for fixed lines, as TM holds a monopoly except in Putrajaya and some areas in the Klang Valley.
