    Default I need a quick answer


    Hi Everyone!
    I did search the forum but couldn't locate the answer.

    I'm currently in Europe and need to call someone in Santo Domingo to their Dominican mobile phone - the number is 1-519 ----

    Question is: After I dial 001 809 - do I need to dial 1-519 ---- or just 519 ----

    Thanks.

    I think you drop the 1. Try it anyway, and see what happens.

    Also, you may want to call your cell phone company to make sure you are approved to make calls to DR. Verizion Wireless is one company that does not allow moble calls from the US to DR. I don't know if it is the same for UK.

    Unbelievable and they own the biggest wireless provider here. I told them to pound salt and switched to Sprint when I lived in the states.

    Stupid company.

    I think you dial 011 809 xxxx (or 011 1 809). I don't think it makes a difference whether you are calling a cell phone or a land line.

    Why not ask the operator to be sure?

    My parents called me on my mobile yesterday. I am pretty sure I just gave them the seven-digit number without the 1 prefix.

    I've called Mr C's Verizon mobile from the UK with no problems.

    You cannot skip 1 - that is the country code
    You cannot skip 809 - that is the area code
    You cannot skip th xxx xx xx - that is the phone number

    Check the prefix before calling abroad, as said it can be 001, or 011 or 0091 etc etc depening on where in Europe.
    From some countries it is hard to get through to DR, go by an operator in that case.

    Good luck!

    Clarification - from the UK it is 00 1 809 XXX XXXX

    You skip the 1 that precedes the mobile number when phoning within the DR, not the 1 before the 809.
