Country code*1 Phone number to call*2 When the phone number you want to call begins with O, do not dial the 0. Country code*1 Phone number to call*2 When the phone number you want to call begins with O, do not dial the 0.
  1. When making a call to a mobile operator in Thailand, add "8" after the country code.
    • For outgoing phone calls to a mobile phone in San Marino, add "39". For outgoing phone calls to a fixed line in San Marino, add "378".
    • For outgoing phone calls to a mobile phone in Monaco, add "33". For outgoing phone calls to a fixed line in Monaco, add "377".
  2. For outgoing phone calls to a fixed line in Italy, add "0"

Notes

  • Aside from "+" and "010", you can also make a phone by pressing "0046" (SoftBank operator identification number) + "010" + "country code" + "phone number to call".
  • "+" and "010" are abbreviated numbers of "0046010".
  • If you use an operator identification number besides "0046", we recommend that you dial the number or configure the country code on your mobile phone in advance.
  • If you do not configure the country code and make an outgoing phone call from your call history, the country code "0046010" will be automatically added (If you use a country code besides "0046010" on a SAMSUNG phone, make the phone call using the dialer).
  • For details on country code settings, see the manual of your phone. You can download the manual (PDF) of your device from the page below.
