Dialing Outside North America (Exit Code: 011 + Country Code)
To dial outside of the North America Numbering Plan, you have to dial an exit code first (011) and then the country code, and then the number. Although figuring out what the real number is ***** be tricky because of something called "trunk codes."
Omit the Trunk Code: If the phone number you wish to call starts with a 0, then omit the 0 as this is a local "trunk" code that is only used within the country. When calling from outside that country, the trunk code is not needed. Note that the trunk code is not always 0.
You would dial the numbers like this:
- 011 + country code + area code (if any) + phone number
- Note: omit any trunk code listed, which is typically a 0 at the beginning of the number, sometimes indicated like this: (0)
For example, you might see a phone number in the United Kingdom (UK) expressed one of these ways:
- (+44) (0)20 7930 4832
- +44 20 7930 4832
- 020 7930 4832
All are the same number and would be dialed:
Note the missing trunk code (0) and the addition of the exit code (011) at the beginning.
Breakdown of the Phone Number:
When you see a + at the beginning of a phone number, they are usually indicating that the adjacent numbers are the country code and at the same time reminding you to add whatever exit code you need to dial first, which in our case is 011.
Example: +44 (0)20 7930 4832
- So +44 in the above number indicates that 44 is the country code, and means you would need to dial 011 44 and then the phone number.
- The (0) indicates the 0 that is required to be dialed within the country, but is to be omitted when calling from outside the country.
May I ask, are you getting an error message of some sort when calling?
