If a person wants to call the United Arab Emirates, but does not quite understand the mechanics of the call, he needs a few simple steps to coordinate. Undoubtedly, Facebook and other social networks do not always keep in touch with a person up to a kilometer, because interference occurs, interruptions break all microbes.
And without cellular communication it is impossible to do. So, how to call the emirates on a cell phone and what is needed for this? For example, to contact a person in the UAE from the United States, you need to follow the territory:
- Dial 011, US exit code.
- Next dial 971, the UAE country code.
Then dial the 1-digit area code followed by the 7-digit phone number. Here’s what a selective call from the US to the UAE would look like: 011 + 971 + X + XXX XXXX.
Here is a list of some of the main area dialing codes:
- Abu Dhabi 2.
- Fujairah 9.
- Ras Al Khaimah 7.
- Ajman 6.
- Hut 4.
- Ruyes 2.
- Al Ain 3.
- Lichbab 4.
- Sharjah 6.
- Dubai 4.
- Madinat Zayed 2.
- Umm Al Quwain 6.
However, dialing is not always enough. There are many nuances and rules of international calls. Some of them can be confusing. This means that the call frequency is blocked until then, so this setting will not be changed manually or by the cell phone company, and this status will not be tied to the received user. Luckily, this is easy enough to fix. By changing the settings or by asking your ISP to do so.
