Well, it used to, sort of. Except for mobiles and special access numbers, UK national dialing codes now begin 01, so 1322 actually becomes 01322. To call from abroad simply omit the "0". This applies to all calls, including mobiles. Mind you, UK residents would have known that, so I suppose this message is a little spurious except where a special code has taken over a previous national code. Thankfully, this hasn't happened often. The full numbers as listed by Douglas are, of course, correct.

By the way, when will North America join most of the rest of the world and use "00" as their international access code?
