the issue came up when germany allowed other telcos, too, with the area  
answer was: the telco filters calls and if your prefix is the one you are  
are calling from it is disregarded (they probably prepend any call with  
the full prefix anyway internally).

but since german problems are absotively different from others and germany  
wheels need to be invented in germany to fit german needs, there's no  
guarantee it will be like that anywherer else ;-)
