What country is country code ‘0091’?

Question: Hello, I am attempting to call phone number 0091 80 4141 XXXX. The number as I am dialing it is not working. What country is country code 0091? I am not familiar with this number.

Answer: The number you are calling looks like it is in India, in the region of Bangalore.

’00’ is an international exit code (the number used to access the international switchboard) for many European and Asian countries, including neighbouring Pakistan, Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh, Myanmar, and China. 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.

’91’ is the country code for India. This is the number needed to reach India from the international switchboard.

The remainder of the phone number appears to be the format for an Indian phone number. The ’80’ signifies a phone number in Bangalore within the Indian numbering system.
