From Monday, August 3rd, the 10-digit dial will take effect to any landline or mobile phone, which removes the prefixes of 045 and 01 so calls made like this will no longer be processed, according to the Federal Telecommunications Institute (IFT).
Although the new marking began in 2019, a «period of coexistence» was given to facilitate the transition to users.
The change in dialing will have no cost to the population and there is no need to change the telephone equipment or carry out any paperwork.
According to the IFT, the change reflects the benefits obtained from the elimination of the national long distance collection, in force since 2015.
Now to dial, you’ll only need the long distance key and local number.
For example, to call Mexico City, you will dial 55 and the eight-digit local number.
Cell phone calls
Forget dialing 044 to call your local cell phones and 045 to call those in another state of the Republic. Everything will be 10 digits.
Whether you’re calling from a cell phone or landline, you no longer have to dial 01. Just include the long distance key and the local number of the national fixed number.

How to mark abroad?
To talk about Mexico abroad you first have to dial 00, then the country code, the city code and finally the number you want to call.
For example, to dial Paris, France, it would be 00-33-1 and eight-digit number.
How to mark from abroad to Mexico?
To talk about another country to Mexico you have to mark the access key to the international long distance service of the country from which it is called, then the country code and the 10 digits of the number you want to call.
That is, 011-52 and then the 10 digits.
Don’t let it go! From 3 August, dialing to landlines and mobile phones in all🇲🇽 will be only 10 digits #MásSencillo

What do you call the 800?
To call the 800 and in general all non-geographical numbers, the prefix 01 will not be dialed first.
For emergency numbers there will be no change and will continue to be marked as before, i.e. 066, 911.
