By adding a leading digit to the existing phone numbers, the available numbers in Kuwait have just gone up by  few millions. Now that is planning for the future….

A local blog, has a number converter, which will convert the numbers in your phone book into the new 8 digit format. Of course you have to download your phonebook into the .csv format; instructions are on the site.

It’s free and you don’t have to submit your phone book to a third party….
