Most phone numbers in Switzerland are written in the following formats:

   Prefix: long distance or international
   --------------------------------------
   |   Carrier or area code 
   |   --------------------
   |   |   Subscriber number
   |   |   -----------------
   v   v   v
   0   AA  SSS SS SS    - Local format
  +41  AA  SSS SS SS    - International format

Most telephone numbers in Switzerland have 9 digits and are written in the format of "AA SSS SS SS". Here are some examples: 43 816 22 11; 79 309 44 09.

When dialing locally inside Switzerland, the long distance prefix of "0" is required. So the format becomes "0 AA SSS SS SS".

When dialing from outside of Switzerland, the international dial-in prefix "+41" is required. So the format becomes "+41 AA SSS SS SS".

When dialing from Switzerland to other countries, the international dail-out prefix "+" or "00" required.
