It is much easier now to call someone thanks to the invention of cellphones and smartphones. Back then, landline phones was the main means of long-distance communication. They are still around and mostly used in offices. In this article, we will talk about how to call landline using cellphone smart Philippines.
It isn’t simple to call a landline in the Philippines because you might need to include the area code to the number you want to call. That step isn’t needed if you are calling a number within the same area code.
To illustrate, if you are in Makati and you want to call your friend in Davao, you will need to add the area code of Davao before the telephone number. So if your friend’s number is 221-5678, you will have to dial 82-221-5678. If you are calling from a different country, you will have to include the country code before the area code. That means you will have to dial +63-82-221-5678.
