How to Call the Philippines from the U.S.

There’s a better way to call the Philippines from the United States.

Everything you love about home is just a phone call away with Vonage.
With the the Vonage® 3000 to Globe® Philippines, you’ll enjoy 3,000 minutes of calling every month to all Globe landlines and mobile phones in the Philippines – this includes Globe Postpaid, Globe Prepaid, TM and Globelines.

When you add Vonage Extensions®, you can extend your home calling plan to any phone – including mobiles at no extra charge. So you can call the Philippines from both your home and mobile phones on the same low-cost plan. You’ll also be able to make unlimited¹ calls to landlines in more than 60 countries and to mobile phones in more than 10 countries and territories.

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

  • First dial 011 – the U.S. exit code.
  • Next dial 63 – the Philippines country code.
  • Then the area code – 1–4 digits.
  • And finally the phone number – 5–7 digits.

Does your number to call the Philippines start with a (+)? What does it mean?

Some international numbers have a plus sign before the country code. This (+) simply means that when dialing this number internationally, the country exit code needs to be used. In some cases, you can dial “+” on a cell or VoIP phone, or simply replace the plus sign with your country’s exit code. For calls to the Philippines from the U.S. using Vonage, you can replace the “+” with “011,” but they’ll both work.

Here is a list of major area codes and city calling codes.
