How to make sure your call to Lebanon goes through.

If you are having a rough time getting your call through, look out for a few of the following common dialing mistakes:

Blocked international calls

Make sure your cell service isn‘t automatically set to block international calls, as this is common practice. If it is set to do so, just go to Settings and turn this option off.

Cells with area codes

Keep in mind that area codes shouldn‘t be added to most international cell phone numbers. In most countries across the globe, cell phone numbers use a set starting digit that one should not try to use when dialing landlines.

Trunk codes

If you are calling an international number that starts with a “0,” you must drop this first digit — it‘s referred to as a “trunk code” and is only used for calling within certain countries.
