What country is country code “00111”

Question: I am trying to dial to country code “00111”. What country is this? The phone number I have is ‘00111 213 272 xxxx’.

Answer: It looks like the country code you’re trying to call is the United States. The phone number you see is as if the call is dialed from Australia.

‘0011’ is the international exit code to dial the international switchboard from Australia.

‘1’ is the country code for the United States, Canada, as well as most of the Caribbean and U.S. Territories (including those in the Pacific).

‘213’ is the area code for Los Angeles.

The last seven digits of the phone number ‘272 xxxx’ appear to be in the standard format for American phone numbers.

To dial this phone number from the U.S. or Canada, eliminate the leading ‘0011’ (as you are not dialing the international switchboard). Keep the leading ‘1’ as well as the area code (213) and phone number (272 xxxx) in the dialing sequence.

To dial this phone number from Australia, dial it as it is listed. ‘0011’ is the exit code to reach the international switchboard. ‘1’ is the country code for the United States. ‘213 272 xxxx’ is the phone number within the United States.

To dial this phone number from New Zealand, Indonesia, the Philippines, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, China, or most of Europe (including the U.K., France, Germany, Spain, Italy, and the Netherlands) replace the leading ‘0011’ with ’00’. The rest of the phone number (‘1 213 272 xxxx’) stays the same.

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’.

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).

Q: I am trying to dial Canadian phone number 403-5xx-xxxx from Sydney, Australia – to do this I dial 00114035xxxxxx, but I’m not getting through – can you help? (number changed to protect caller details)

0011 – this code needed to dial from Australia to the international switchboard

403 – this is the area code for the province of Alberta, specifically the southern portion (Calgary is the major city in this region).

5xx-xxxx- this is the local phone number within the 403 area code.
