If you’re having trouble getting your calls to Chile through, check out these dialing errors:

  • International calls that are blocked – Several service providers allow users to block international calling or even use “blocked” as a default. Double check this setting. This does not apply to Vonage World®.
  • Cell numbers that don’t have area codes – Area codes shouldn’t be added to international cell phone numbers, and further, in most countries, cell phone numbers have a dedicated starting digit not used for landlines.
  • No trunk code – If you’re dialing a number starting with zero, drop that first digit. The zero is referred to as a “trunk code” and is used only when calling within certain countries.
  • Internet phone (VoIP) connections – A few VoIP providers let you forego dialing 011 before making an international call. If that feature is turned on however, leave out the 011 U.S. code.
