When do you really required to change or not?

If you are traveling for a short stay or business trip then opportunities to meet new people, clients, and customers where you need to save their contact #. During the short stay, you may not require to change the codes and to make sure you are saving the number complete including international code number.

Permanent or long stay might be hard to save the contact details each with long digits and you then required to change your default code. As long you are staying you might be depending only on local calls.

If you are a continuous traveler or periodically changing countries then the only recommendation is to keep your resident code while change all numbering to complete digits with international code and keep saving new number contact with international codes.
