Country Codes - What are they?

If you want to call somebody who resides in another country, you need to use a set of numbers known as country codes or prefixes. These prefixes are brief alphabetical or numerical geographic codes used at the beginning of an international phone number. Every country has a specific code. So, while dialing the number, you will have to use the phone number with a prefix of the international country code or the phone code for the nation.

Why are country codes needed?

During the times we used rotary phones, it was difficult to have long contact numbers. Thus, to avoid this problem, “phone codes” were introduced which guaranteed that a contact number never exceeded 11 digits. Next, ISO 3166-1 "Country Codes," also known as “international calling codes” were used to create country codes. When you need to make any international calls, you also need the country codes.

What is the basic dialing sequence
to make an international call?

The basic dialing sequence that you follow while making an international call is:
Exit Code - Country Code - National Subscriber Number

The Exit Code

Also known as IDD (International Direct Dialing) or International Access Code, you can use Exit Code to dial internationally. The plus sign definitely works when you call from any country. The dialing sequence can all be used interchangeably. Thus, you can use the plus sign and exit code interchangeably.  

The Country Code

This is the second group of numbers in the dialing sequence. It includes the telephone country code unique to each country.  


National Subscriber Number

The actual phone number is the national subscriber number. This also includes the area code. In addition, it highlights the differences between a mobile phone and a landline number.

Examples

Let us look at a few examples:

While calling a London landline from America, you can either use 011 44 20 xxxx xxxx or +44 20 xxxx xxxx.

In several countries, you may need to add a zero when dialing within the country. However, you can drop the zero when you are using the internal area code. For instance, if you are dialing a number in Cambridge, the UK. You will need the internal area code as 01223. So, the number would be: 01223 xxxxxx. Here, you add a zero with the internal area code of Cambridge. You will find area codes from 2 digits to as many as 5 digits. This internal area code works as an identifier for the geographic region.

Likewise, if you are calling at the same number from France, you will only be able to initiate the international phone call by adding 00 (double zero) and then the internal area code followed by the phone number. So, the number would be 00 44 1296 xxxxxx. Here, 44 is the international (country) code, 1296 is the area code for Aylesbury followed by the phone number.
