How to Call India from the U.S.

Looking for the easiest way to call India from the United States?

Whether you’re calling relatives in Delhi or planning a trip to Mumbai, the Vonage World® plan can help your call to India get through. Don’t let complicated calling cards or restrictive calling plans make you miss another important occasion to call home. Vonage makes it easy to enjoy low-cost, reliable home phone service with unlimited¹ India calling to all landlines and mobile phones, so you can call India from the U.S. anytime.

To call India from the U.S., just follow these simple dialing directions:

  • First dial 011, the U.S. exit code.
  • Next dial 91, the country code for India.
  • Then dial the area code (2–4 digits — please see a sample calling code list below) and finally the phone number (area code plus phone number equals 10 digits).

Give Vonage to your Family in India

Here’s an idea: Why not give Vonage World to your friends or family in India? It’s easy…. just sign up for a Vonage World account for them and ship them the Vonage Box™². That way they can make unlimited¹ calls to landlines and mobiles in the U.S. Imagine your brother in Mumbai having the same U.S. area code as you. You and anyone in the U.S. can reach him on a U.S number, rather than paying international rates to call India. And if you both have Vonage, calls between you are included at no additional charge! Vonage works anywhere there’s a high-speed Internet connection.
