Egyptian mobile phone numbers changing from October 6th.

There will be a 4 month overlap period apparently when you can use the old and the new.

Amendments will be different for each of Egypt's three mobile operators:

Etisalat
Current 10 digit numbers, which all start 01, will take an extra 1. They will now begin 011

Current 11 digit numbers, which all start 0152, will change the 5 to a 1. They will now begin 0112

Mobinil
Current 10 digit numbers, which start 01, will add a 2. They will now begin 012

Current 11 digit numbers, which start 0150, will replace the 5 with a 2. They will begin 0120

Vodafone
Current 10 digit numbers, which start 01, will add a 0. They will now start 010

Current 11 digit numbers, which start 0151, will replace 5 with 0. They will start 0101

Does this assume you have one of those fancy phones that does internet and things?
