Calling a mobile phone in the Netherlands? A general tip:

International calls to mobiles in the Netherlands are dialed in the same manner you would dial any other international number. So if you want to place a call to the Netherlands to a mobile phone from the U.S., dial 011 + 31 + 1 + area code + number.
