London has 3 separate STD codes. There is outer london, which is the 0208 number, an inner London code, which is 0207 and a new 0203 London code. The 0203 code has been introduced because the other, older codes are running out. 0208 phone numbers will not be available to purchase for new customers within the next year due to stock issues. Once sold out there will be no more available at all. 0208 numbers will still work once all the stock is gone but you will not be able to buy them as a brand new number. We currently have stock of about 200 numbers and that is it. So if you want to secure your 0208 phone numbers you need to act quickly.
Buy a 0208 number and have it pointed to your existing landline or mobile phone.

Here is a tip about how to write 0208 phone numbers. Some people write numbers like this 0208 432 5554. This is not the correct format and London numbers should be published like this 020 8432 5554. If you take your 0208 number and advertise it in the wrong way it could show that you are not familiar with the local traditions.
