Dubai country code


Before you make your first foreign call, there are some things that you have to know in order to make a productive call. Here is the course on how to make an international phone call from anywhere on the planet using your phone line or cell phone:

1. International calling prefix. To perform an international phone call, the first think you must enter is the international calling prefix for the state that you are currently staying at the moment of making phone call. This will allow you dial external call. Every individual country has its own calling prefix. USA’s International Calling Prefix is “011?. These are the first numbers that you will have to dial prior to making the call.
2. Further digits will be the country code of the state to which you will be calling. This code may range from 1 to 3 numbers, and is different when you’re calling a regular line, or a mobile line. Larger countries can have more than one country code.
3. Next step, the area code, or city code. The area code directs your call into to the particular part of the state where you will be calling, and may range from 1 to 6 digits.
4. At the end, you must dial the local phone number of the person or company you will be calling.
