To this day, in metropolis to each geographical zone corresponds to a telephone number: 01 for Ile-de-France, 02 for the regions of the northwest, 03 for the northeast 04 for the Southeast and 05 for the southwest. However, in the event of a move out of the area to which the telephone number is associated, the users do not have the right to retain their telephone number in 01, 02, 03, 04 or 05.
