Certainly did in London, shortage of lines prefix would have been 01 340 / 01 348 at the time. 2 digits have since been added giving more lines. Those no's are now 0208 340 / 0208 348. 348 being the Fitsroy estate, people used to answer their phones Fitsroy 3456 in those days
I needed a phone for my company. Applied in October 1981 & got a connection in April 1982.

If only all the BBC Panorama programmes from the late 70's were online, there was an episode about this.
Damn EU coming along and speeding up all the UK phone-line connection times. Interfering bureaucrats!
