Question: How do I call a +82 number? The number I want to call is +82 2-6936-xxxx.
Answer: +82 is the country code for South Korea. To call +82:
- Dial your country’s exit code. ‘011’ for the United States and Canada, ’00’ for many South American and European countries. Dialing a ‘+’ symbol on a mobile phone will automatically dial the local exit code.
- Dial ’82’ for South Korea’s country code. This will connect your call to South Korean phone network.
- Dial the rest of the phone number. Do not dial any leading ‘0’ in the telephone number.
