Secrets behind Latin American
phonecodes:
The International numbering plan
got in place in I964.
Initially Mexico and some Central American Countries
were part of the "World Telecom Zone"
North America +I

8 larger countries have a two digit code,
(+5I), (+52), (+53), (+54), (+55), (+56), (+57), (+58)

Brazil has the double digit, (+55).
Lobbying efforts were made
to help Brazil get this prime code.
Only 4 countries in the world have
a double digit country code.

smaller countries have a
three digit code:
the 9 smaller countries of
South America start with +59-
(+590), (+59I), (+592), (+593), (+594), (+595), (+596), (+597), (+598) and (+599)
the 8 smaller countries of Central America start with +50-
(+50I), (+502), (+503), (+504), (+505), (+506), (+507), (+509)


Mexico once had the country code (+I)
in fact it is only in I972
that British Hoduras (now Belize) (+50I), Costa Rica
(+506), El Salvador (+503),
Honduras (+504), Nicaragua
(+505) and Panama (+507)
became part of the Latin American Phonesystem


it is only in I976 that the French Departements Guadeloupe (+590) and Martinique (+596)
got their country codes

** in I984 Saint Pierre et Miquelon,
two French islands situated in the high North
above Nova Scotia, Canada
were remooved from the North American phone system (+I)

and got the Central American country code (+508)
all the Caribbean Islands situated a few thousand miles lower
remaining in the North American system


*also the British Falklands (in Spanish Malvinas) (+500)
 located next to Argentina, South America
received a central American code,
it would have been more logic to give them a Southern (+59-) code
the explanation is that there were no more codes left ...

for future changes
it will be difficult to react,
all 5 codes beeing presently occupied
...
