For all calls, just dial the area code plus thse seven-digit number.
To place a call, dial 011, plus the country code, then the telephone number. If you don’t know the country code or want an Operator to place the call for you, just dial 0.
If you'd like, an Operator will help you place certain types of calls:
- Person-to-person calls – The operator must reach a particular person to connect the call.
- Directory Assistance – To obtain a listed telephone number from directory assistance and complete the call by having the operator dial the number or via an automated process.
