Dialing from a (US) cellular phone to Sweden

Question: Hello, I am looking to dial from my cellular phone in the United States to Swedish number 04090xxxx how do I dial this number?

Answer: Thank you for your question.

To dial from an American mobile to Sweden first dial the international exit code for the US (‘011′), then add the Swedish country code (’46’), then remove the leading ‘0’, then dial the rest of the phone number.

When calling from a mobile, you can also dial “+” instead of the international exit code “011” – it helps to save numbers in your phone this way as if you are travelling in different countries the phone will automatically adjust the exit code to the location you are currently roaming in.
