    I’m from Singapore. My Turkish friend’s cell phone no. is +905 416 ??? ???
    1) Does the 416 represent the area code or is it simply just part of the cell phone no.?
    2) He’s in singapore now, will his number still appear as +905 416 ??? ??? on my cell when he calls?
    3) Do i have to dial +905 416 ??? ??? as well to get him? Or +65 416 ??? ???
    4) He’s in singapoore and i’m calling him from singapore so do i pay normal local charges or i will still have to pay internatinal call charges?


    Hi Alexa,

    1. This is his number “spelled” correctly: +90 5416 ??? ??? (90 is Turkey’s country code and the rest is the cell number; no area codes are used for Turkey cellular phones so all Turkey cell numbers start with 5).
    2. He can call you using your local number so normally his number should not show in full international format on your caller ID; how it will show depends on your network.
    3. You must dial his full international number to reach him (+90…).
    4. You will pay international charges and he will pay roaming charges to receive calls to Singapore. Basically your calls will be routed through Turkey. Here’s a page providing more info on how international roaming works.


    Thank you so much for your clear and detailed answers. Thank you.
