  • Next dial 962, the country code for Jordan.
  • Then dial the 1-digit area code (see sample calling code list below) followed by the 7-digit phone number.

Take a look at a few common dialing errors:

International calls are sometimes blocked

A few service providers will let users block all international calling. These particular customers sometimes have “blocked” set as the default.

Cell numbers occasionally don’t use area codes

Don’t add area codes to international cell numbers. Also, in the majority of nations, cell phone numbers use a dedicated first digit that is not used for dialing a landline.

Trunk codes

If the number you’ve chosen to dial is a number that starts with zero, drop it. The zero is called a “trunk code,” used when calling within only specific countries.

VoIP connections

A few Internet phone, or VoIP providers, will let you skip dialing 011 before calling internationally. If this setting is already on, just remove the 011 U.S. code and you’ll be okay from there.
