That's not really true. France is divided into 5 geographical zones (1,
2, 3, 4 and 5).

The 1 is for the center of France that is much larger than just Paris.
The 0 is for something like your default or local operator I don't
remember exactly. If you want to use another operator because you have a
contract with two different ones you can use another digit. That's why in
general you see (0)1 instead of just 01.

So a number in my area, south-est of France, zone n°4, is something like
+33 (0)4 12 34 56 78.
