Whenever calling abroad, you are expected to drop the very first digit of the phone number in a number of countries. This is mainly because, phone dialing plans in most countries come with a so called Telephone Trunk Code (Trung Prefix). Normally, this is the digit "0" (zero) which is placed in front of phone numbers for calls originating within the country. However, this specific digit need to be dropped when you are calling an overseas destination.
Let's say that your brother in Sydney tells you that his mobile number is 04 22?? ????. If you are trying to get in touch with him simply by calling from France, 00 61 04 ???? ????, it will certainly not work. This is simply because you will need to dial without the digit "0" (zero), consequently the dialing number will appear like 00 61 42?? ????.
Furthermore there are instances when an overseas phone call will not go through. Some of the causes are detailed below:
- Phone lines are blocked for international calls
- Mobile phone numbers do not use area codes
- Using an on-line VoIP Phone connection?
