Dialing Tips

  • If you are in an office or building with a main switchboard or PBX, make sure you have a live outside line by dialing '9' or similar
  • Some mobile carriers provide shortcuts for making international calls - generally, by changing if or how an IDD is dialed. E.g., Verizon allows you to dial direct to countries with 10-digit phone numbers under the North American Numbering Plan (NANP) and t-mobile allows you to dial a '+' instead of an IDD.
  • Most VoIP services do not require an IDD - but VoIP dialing procedures vary widely, so check dialing for your service carefully
  • Make sure you don't have an extra '0' in your number (see step #3)
