Area codes

When making an inter-area long-distance call from within Taiwan, a long-distance prefix "0" is required. If calls are made from within the same area code, then the 0 of the area code prefix (or the entire area code itself) does not need to be included.

If calls are made from outside Taiwan, the "0" of the area code prefix is omitted.
