    Hi Amir,

    If you open the drop down where it says “codes below” you will see a number of dialing formats for each Australian city and also for dialing to Australia cellular. The reason your call doesn’t go through is that you are adding Sydney’s area code (2). Australian cell phones do not need area codes therefore you should dial 00 61 + cell number (should look like this: 4 ???? ????).

    Let me know if it still doesn’t work. Here’s the page with more on dialing from Egypt to Australia.

    Well you know what that means – it’s possible that the phone is blocked for incoming international calls. However, as I said above the cell number should look like this 4 ???? ????. In other words 4 followed by 8 digits. You have 4 followed by 10 digits. I hope you didn’t add a 4 in the beginning. Tell me this: was the number you were given: 0412…?

    OK, so you shouldn’t add a 4 in the beginning. Instead you should drop the starting zero and dial 00 61 412431???. The starting zero is used for dialing within Australia.
