Phone number in Ho Chi Min City

Hi there! I cannot call my friend in HCM. Seems like the numbers have changed as I am getting "incorrect number". Can anybody help?

The mobile number used to be +84-08-213-XXXX. May-be they have added a digit or something to the area code?

Thanks for your help.

Hi Mati,

This is quite freaky. I assume the number your dialing is a deskphone, isn't it? If your friend's number starts with digit 2 then you either try to add another 2 or 6 depends on the network provider.

Ex: Dial 0084 8 2213 xxxx. If it doesn't work, then dial 0084 8 6213 xxxx.

Hope this helps.

Cheers,

SL.

Hi Ruth,

There's nothing wrong with the number you gave. This is a handphone no, try to dial again with this format: 0084 983 724 677.

Hope you can make it through.

Cheers,

+84-08-213-XXXX is not a mobile number, it is home number. For mobile it is +84-(9/10 digits, for example +84-908-xxxxxx)

if you want to call that it should be +848 - 3 - 213-xxxx. Since number 3 is just added into the number.

For mobile, no need number 3.

This is a deskphone number. Since Oct 2008, all desk phone numbers of VNPT has to be added the 3 after province code. You thus dial: +84-08-213-XXXX => +84-08-213-3- XXXX
