    Am going to Australia & New Zealand. Taking my Verizon iPhone. How do I call a local number while I am in these countries? Is it the same as if I was calling these countries from the US

    Hello,
    It’s not the same as dialing these numbers from the US. You will dial local numbers the way locals do. Example: Australian cell phone: 04 ???? ????. You can use our pages for more info. Here’s one:

    So if I wanted to call Air New Zealand at Sydney Intl I would dial;

    0+2 13 24 76?

    and to dial any other number in Sydney if would be;

    0+2 then the number?

    No. This is a type of short number and you don’t add an area code to it. I think you dial it as is: 132476.

    As for adding 02 to Sidney numbers: only landlines use area codes in Australia and most countries outside North America. So yes, calling landlines in Sidney should start with 02 followed by 8 more digits, while cell phones start with 04.

Heads-up: some information on these forums could be outdated - countries change their numbering plans periodically. We recommend using our top menu to double check the correct instructions for dialing to a specific country.
