If you‘re still having difficulty getting your calls to Kuwait to go through, see if you‘ve possibly made one of these common dialing errors:
Cell phones sometimes auto block international calls
A large number of service providers authorize manufacturers to release new cell phones with the international calling option blocked. Just be sure to change that setting if that seems to be the case, and your call should go through.
Mobiles, area codes and you
When dialing international cell phone numbers, you don‘t need to use the area code due to the fact that many countries already have a dedicated first digit that takes the place of the area code.
Numbers that begin with zero — that number is called a “trunk code,” by the way — are rare. The trunk code is only used when calling internationally from within certain nations. Just drop the zero if you‘re not in a location needing a trunk code.
Dialing internationally on VoIP phones
Some Internet phone, or “VoIP,” services don‘t need you to press 011 to make international calls. You may not even need to dial that exit code, so check to see if your VoIP phone is one of those.
