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

   Prefix: long distance or international
   --------------------------------------
   |   Carrier or area code 
   |   --------------------
   |   |   Subscriber number

   v   v   v

   0   AAA SSS SSSS     - Local format
  +234 A   SSS SSSS     - International format
  +234 AAA SSS SSSS     - International format

Most telephone numbers in Nigeria have 8, 10 digits and are written in the format of "A SSS SSSS", "AAA SSS SSSS". Here are some examples: 1 493 3385; 9 870 5477; 810 997 0533; 803 313 8999.

When dialing locally inside Nigeria, the long distance prefix of "0" is required. So the format becomes "0 A SSS SSSS", "0 AAA SSS SSSS".

When dialing from outside of Nigeria, the international dial-in prefix "+234" is required. So the format becomes "+234 A SSS SSSS", "+234 AAA SSS SSSS".

When dialing from Nigeria to other countries, the international dail-out prefix "+" or "009" required.
