This is our collection of phone numbers that can be tested to ensure that a phone is being dialed properly.
These phone numbers should answer from an New Zealand phone number with an automated switchboard. Calling to one of them helps make sure that you’re successfully able to call to an New Zealand phone number.
Most of these can be dialed either domestically or when calling New Zealand from overseas – the only exception being some banks will not allow domestic calls to overseas telephone banking numbers.
NOTE: We list these numbers ONLY for light testing purposes to make sure you’re properly dialing a call to New Zealand from your current location. Please do not use automated or high volume systems to dial these numbers.
