What country code is “001”?

Question: I am calling a country with the country code “001” – what country is it? The phone number I was given is ’00-1-212-873-xxxx’. How do I dial this number?

The structure of the phone number appears to be for the United States, specifically a New York phone number.

’00’ is an international exit code used by many countries in Europe and Asia. It is the code used to access the international switchboard.

‘1’ is the international country code for the United States and Canada.

‘212’ appears to be the area code for New York. The structure of the remaining numbers (seven remaining numbers, grouped into three and four) confirm that this is likely an American number.

If this number was dialed from the United Kingdom, France, India, China, or any country with the ’00’ exit code, it would work.

To dial this number from Canada or elsewhere in the United States, eliminate the ’00’ from the call sequence. The leading ‘1’ can be used within the North American Numbering Plan to call within Canada, the United States, most of the Caribbean, and U.S. territories (including those in the Pacific).

To dial this number from Australia, replace the ’00’ with Australia’s exit code of ‘0011’.

To dial this number from Japan, replace the ’00’ with Japan’s exit code of ‘010’.

To dial this number from Russia and many of the countries of the former U.S.S.R., replace the ’00’ with dialing ‘8’, wait for the dial tone, then dial ’10’.

For a list of international exit codes, we keep a list of all countries.

What country is country code “0033”?

Question: I am calling a country with country with country code “0033” – I do not recognize this number – what country is it? The phone number I was given is “0033 1 51 66 xx xx.”

Answer: The number you are trying to call looks like France. The phone number is likely in Paris.

“00” is an international exit code (the number used to access the international switchboard) for most European countries. If ’00’ is dialed from a country that does not use that as its exit code (the U.S. and Canada use ‘011’, Australia uses ‘0011’, Japan uses ‘010’, many countries of the former U.S.S.R use ‘8’ – wait for the dial tone – ’10’), the call will not work.

“33” is the country code for France. It is the number that is dialed to reach France from the international switchboard.

The remainder of the number appears to be the format for a French phone number. The ‘1’ signifies the area code for Paris within the French numbering system. The remainder of the phone number is separated into eight numbers (two blocks of four digits).

What is the mobile phone code for Canada?

Question: I can not find details on what the mobile phone code is for Canada – I only see details about area codes. Do you know what it is?

Answer: Canada does not use mobile phone codes – mobile phone numbers are intermixed with the regular landline phone system.

Some countries have an “area code” or “regional code” dedicated to mobile phone numbers. For example, in the Australian phone system, Sydney is part of area code “02”, Melbourne is part of area code “03” and mobile phone numbers are part of area code “04”.

In the French phone system, Paris numbers being with ’01’, southeastern France numbers being with “04”, and mobile phone numbers being with “06” or “07”.

In Canada (as well as the United States), there are only area codes – for example Montréal has area codes “438”, “450”, “514”, and “579”. All types of phone numbers (landline, mobile, VoIP, etc.) are present within these area codes. Calgary has area codes “403” and “587” – local landline, mobile, and VoIP phone numbers are all present in these area codes as well.

There is no additional cost when calling to a Canadian mobile phone number (the person receiving the call may have extra phone costs based on time of day or whether they are roaming).

What country is country code “0044”?

Question: I am calling a country with country code “0044” – I do not recognize this number – what country is it?

Answer: “0044” is most likely a mislabeled country code “44” – the country code for the United Kingdom, as well as Guernsey, Jersey, and the Isle of Man.

“00” is used as an international calling prefix from many European countries. It is the code that is dialed to reach a location outside the country.

“44” is the country code for the U.K.. Once the caller is connected to the international dialing system, “44” identifies the United Kingdom in the calling sequence.

This dialing sequence could be different from other countries – the United States and Canada both use “011” instead of “00” for their exit code. Australia uses “0011” and Japan uses “010”. Most (but not all) other countries in Western Europe use “00” for their exit code.
