Changes to mobile numbering in Egypt

The Egyptian National Telecom Regulatory Authority (NTRA) has announced that as of the 6th October 2011 all mobile phone numbers in Egypt will be adding an additional digit.

Both new and old numbering plans will be active until February 6th 2012 and should receive communication normally, however after this time only the new numbers will be active.

2sms suggests all customers sending to Egypt ensure they modify their address books accordingly to account for the changes.
