Encyclopedia > International Call Prefix

Each country has both a country calling code used to dial into a country, and an international call prefix or international access code used to dial out of the country. The ITU approved 00 as the general standard some time ago, and this has been implemented by a large number of countries, but not all. This page lists the exceptions. // At a glance In depth Zone 1 – North American Numbering Plan Area nanpa. ...

International phone numbers are usually written with a + before the phone number, and some phones allow this to be entered directly, often with two consecutive presses of the * key. This avoids having to know the international call prefix.


Many states still provide alternative dialing arrangements for calls to neighbouring countries.

2. Calls to Uganda from Tanzania and Kenya require the code 006, followed by the area code and number.


3. Calls to Tanzania from Uganda and Kenya require the code 007, followed by the area code and number.


4. Although in Chile all the carriers use the 1 prefix, the number of the carrier in advertising and common usage includes the 1 prefix as a part of the number.


5. The domestic call prefix 8 and international call prefix 8~10 are to be replaced by the ITU-recommended dialling prefixes of 0 and 00.

LincMad: International Telesleaze Prefixes (2974 words)
Carrying a call ten meters from the inbound switch to a conference bridge in the next room is not what I consider "use of the domestic network." Worse, the charges are often inadequately disclosed, and the consumer has little or no protection against misleading or outright fraudulent use of these international numbers.
For instance, calls to India may be cheapest in the middle of the day and most expensive in the middle of the night.
Remember, you must have two calls, one telesleaze and the other not, to the same country, on the same long-distance carrier, with the same international rate plan in effect, in the same rate period, but with a higher charge for the telesleaze number.
