Carrier code: does it still make sense?

Last week, one of the members used the TB community to clear some doubts about it. O Eduardo Luiz Caixeta (eduluiz) He asked:

“Do carrier codes still make sense at a time when most (if not all) plans include unlimited national calls to any area code or carrier?

I don’t think there’s any technical reason behind it, but I don’t know if there is.

I recently made the portability to another operator (Vivo -> Claro) and practically all my phonebook has numbers with 015 and it will take a lot of work to change everything”

Despite being widely used in the not-too-distant past, it is rare to see someone using carrier code these days. With the growing use of smartphones — and the drop in the number of landline lines — this habit ended up leaving Brazilians’ routine.

the member Felipe_Silva brought an important piece of information: even without informing the operator code at the time of the call, mobile phone companies tend to complete the call — something that did not happen long ago.

In addition, the Everton Favrettoone of the contributors here at Tecnoblog, complemented the matter:

“But in 2022 it doesn’t even matter anymore, the operator code made a difference in the time when long distance calls were paid separately on the bill (especially landline). Nowadays, with unlimited or abundant minutes on both landline and mobile, it has become a relic, a hindrance.

So much so that for small providers Anatel gives the option of “alternative marking”, that is, not using the CSP. Even because there are far more than 99 STFC (fixed) companies.”
