How to Call South Africa (SA) With Talk360

Today, various telecom businesses facilitate free international calling to help individuals stay in touch with their family, friends, & clients. Several calling platforms have advanced based on the target market & are here to stay. This includes Talk360. You can now seamlessly engage with various people on an international level while incurring minimal costs. You can also use Talk360 for both international calls as well as local calls.

‍In SA, each city or mobile network has its area code. Here are a few tips on dialing instructions if you intend to call SA:

  • dial the International Direct Dialing (IDD) number. The Exit code can be either 00 or + for most countries or 011 for USA or Canada;
  • dial 27 – the country code;
  • dial the city/area code;
  • dial the phone number you want to communicate with.

For instance:

If you want to call South Africa from the United States, just perform the following:

  • 011 – 27 – area code – land phone number; or
  • 011 – 27 – 10-digit mobile number.

To call South Africa from Great Britain, dial the following:

  • dial the international call prefix (00/+), the country code for this country (27), the area code (i.e., for Cape Town) without the 0, then the subscriber number, e.g., 00-27-21-XXXXXXX or +27-21-XXXXXXX.

To call South Africa from Saudi Arabia, just perform the following:

  • dial: 00 - 27 - Area Code - Land Phone Number or if you want to dial a mobile number, just dial +27 - 9-digit mobile number.

South Africa also has 11 area codes. Its international country code is +27. For Cape Town’s area code, which is 21, you would dial (+27)21 & then the 7-digit phone number code. Below is a list of South Africa area codes you should take into consideration:

Area Code
Cape Town 21
Durban 31
Johannesburg 11
Pretoria 12
Soweto 51
Port Elizabeth 41
Pietermaritzburg 33
Benoni 11
Vereeniging 16
Bloemfontein 51

If you initiate a call within SA, you need to include the area or mobile network code at the front of the number. This implies that the number will begin with a 0, rather than +27:

  • Landline: E.g., 0(national prefix) +21(area code) +7-digit phone number = 021 XXX XXXX
  • Mobile (Cellphone): E.g., 072(service provider) +7-digit mobile-phone number = 072 XXX XXXX

Now you know how to dial South Africa. Talk360 bridges the distance since it’s an international calling app. You can effortlessly make high-quality calls to stay connected with your clients, friends, & family abroad.

Absolutely a game changer
I just lost my dad and to have this opportunity to be able to speak to my mum every day is amazing. With my mum in England and so far away I feel a weight has lifted knowing she is just a phone call away. What's even better is that it's so reasonable.
