Telephone code of the Arab Emirates
Telephone codes of cities and emirates
Important note! If the phone number is dialing from abroad, then you need to type the city code (or operator) abbreviated, that is, without the front "0". If the call inside the UAE, then you need to dial completely, that is, including the first "0".
For example, phone help desk TC Mall of Emirates.
If you call from abroad: +971 4 4099000
If you call the rooms in the UAE: +971 04 4099000
Cities codes in the table below:
|City (Emirate)||Code for calls from abroad||For calls inside the country|
|Al-Karama district (code is no longer used)||1||01|
|Sharjah Emirates, Ajman and Umm-El Kuwaine||6||06|
|Emirate Ras Al-Heima||7||07|
Mobile operators codes in the table below:
|Operator||Code for calls from abroad||For calls inside the country|
|Etisalat||50, 54, 56||050, 054, 056|
|Du||52, 55, 58||052, 055, 058|
|Purpose||Code for calls from abroad||For calls inside the country|
|Toll Free (free for the caller)||800||800|
|Shared Cost Services||200||200|
|Shared Cost Services||600||600|
Now most readers have a question: "What is Shared Cost Services?"
Respond. These are the numbers, when calling a part of the connection fee carries the number of the number. That is, for the caller, the conversation will cost cheaper.
Such rooms are used for commercial purposes. For example, the TV channel arranges a telephone survey live. To more people call and participate, Shared Cost Services are used with a call price of 2 or 3 times cheaper than the usual.
Very love these numbers delivery service, products or food. Call with order Customer is cheaper or for free. On the photo near Cinnabon advertising in Abu Dhabi, they offer their branded buns with delivery and a discount of 20%. As you can see in advertising, the phone with the prefix 600 is indicated.
Or if the company sells paid advice on the phone, then again is used Shared Cost Services, but already with a high price minute, often exceeding the price of ordinary conversation.
Naturally, we also have such polls and paid services by phone exist. But we have no special numbers pools for this. And in the UAE, such a system exists.
How to dial the number in the Arab Emirates from Russia
From mobile: +971 (UAE) – city code or operator – subscriber number.
For example: +971 4 4099000
From stationary: 8 (access to intercity) – 10 (exit to international) – 971 (UAE) – city code or operator – subscriber number.

All subscriber numbers in the UAE since 2000 consist of 7 digits. Exceptions are found only in 200, 600 and 800. It was quite a logical decision, much more convenient than "multiply" phone codes.

All calls through messengers in the UAE outside the law. Etisalat and DU operators block VoIP packets, and the messengers most often do not work on calls, only chat. If it turns out that the messenger works for calls, the set to Russia is done through "+7".
