Telephone Numbers in China
China phone numbers are organized as per the Chinese Telephone Code Plan. United World Telecom can help you get Chinese virtual phone numbers, such as national and geographic numbers.
Geographic Area Codes
Chinese local numbers consist of a 2-digit area code followed by an 8-digit subscriber number. When calling from one landline to another in the same area, the area code is not required to be dialed. However, you must dial the trunk prefix (0). We offer the following Chinese geographic numbers:
We offer the following Chinese geographic numbers:
- Beijing (10)
- Guangzhou (20)
- Shanghai (21)
China National Virtual Numbers
Chinese national numbers can be dialed from mobile phones and landlines anywhere in the country and from other countries. These numbers begin with a 400 code, followed by 7 digits. For example, a Chinese national number format would appear like 400 xxx-xxxx.
In our experience, many businesses prefer to use China 400 compared to toll-free numbers. China toll-free numbers cannot be dialed from mobile phones. Additionally, China toll-free numbers require separate phone numbers for North and South China. On the other hand, national numbers offer a single unified phone number that callers can dial from any phone.

Operators China Telecom, China Unicom, and China Mobile dominate the telecom industry in China. All companies have 3G licenses and provide fixed-line and mobile services. Companies from Europe and North America dominate the country’s mobile communications equipment market. Chinese manufacturers are focusing their energies on South America, Southeast Asia, and Africa for growth.
