0161 556 Dialing Code


Dialing Code 0161 556 is part of Area Code 0161, which covers Manchester and the surrounding area.

The majority of numbers in the 0161 Area Code belong to normal landlines in Manchester, but it is possible that these numbers are being used elsewhere as virtual numbers.

There are multiple telephone companies operating in the 0161 Area Code and they are allocated blocks of numbers, which can be identified by the digits following the Area Code. In this case, the digits 556 after the area code indicate that the range of numbers was originally allocated to YEMOT HAMOSHIACH UK LTD on 24 August 2022, although due to number portability, individual numbers within this range may now be allocated to other operators.
