Privately owned landlines (or fixed lines) are not as widely owned in Brazil as other countries, due to high cost. Most people rely now on mobile phones. Unfortunately there does not seem to be any mobile phone number directory for Brazil.

Brazilian telecommunications are privately operated, and there are a number of providers.

Each of these operaters has their own individual prefix. If you are making a long distance-call, outside your area code, you need to dial this prefix together with the long-distance prefix (0) and the individual phone number.

Example:

To call Brasília from another (Brazilian) region - Dial 0 + 14 + 61 + phone number

 

Here are the area codes (and the operators codes) for the main cities in Brazil;

  • Brasília: 14 (Oi) + 61
    • São Paulo: 15 (Telefonica) + 11
      • Rio de Janeiro: 21 (Embratel) + 21
        • Salvador: 21 (Embratel) + 71
          • Fortaleza: 21 (Embratel) + 85
