More than just international calling

Change Caller ID

The first step is to dial “00”. This is the international dialling code for the UK. Using it signals that you’re about to make a call to another country.

Next, you input the country code for the territory you’re contacting. For example, the country code for the US is 1, so if you were placing a call to a US number, you’d dial “00 1”.

If you’re dialling a landline, input the area code followed by the telephone number. If you’re calling a mobile phone, you don’t need to worry about an area code. Just input the mobile number you’re trying to reach.

It’s even easier to place international calls through Dialpad. Firstly, enable international calling in the Admin Settings section of your account.

To place an international call from the Dialpad desktop app, simply type “+” followed by the country code and telephone number. If you were calling Nigeria, for example, you’d dial “+234” and then the number you wish to reach.

From the mobile app, you can long press “0” in the dialler to enter “+”, then add the country code and number. For example, to call Norway, you’d long press “0” until the “+” appeared, then dial 47, followed by the phone number.

If you’re using Dialpad on a desk phone, dial “01” followed by the country code and telephone number you wish to call.

See how Dialpad has helped these companies make affordable international calls


Dathic is an AI-powered tech company offering a data platform to retailers across North, Central, and South America. The international nature of Dathic’s client base meant that giving each employee a separate Skype account for international calling just wasn’t cost-effective.

With Dialpad, Dathic are able to unify their communications in one platform that offers international voice and video calls as well as advanced call analytics, so that Dathic could call international numbers everywhere from Venezuela to the Virgin Islands.

Jungle Disk

An online backup software and data security company, Jungle Disk was suffering from the limited functionalities and poor call quality of their old vendor, 8x8. Jungle Disk needs high-quality international calling to reach customers and make sales, but their old provider wasn’t cutting it.

Since switching to Dialpad, Jungle Disk has seen a boost in productivity thanks to the super easy-to-use mobile app for iOS and Android, and advanced features like real-time voice transcriptions. Now, Jungle Disk can reach customers from Brazil to Estonia at the touch of a button.


Cloud computer software company PagerDuty has five offices across the world, each with its own local number, as well as a global customer base. Before signing up with Dialpad, PagerDuty would give each employee credit on their personal mobile device, which wasn’t cost-effective—or good for work-life balance.

PagerDuty needed a business phone system that allowed for low-cost international calls, and that could be rolled out onto everyone’s existing devices. That’s where Dialpad stepped in. Now, employees have their own business phone number separate from their personal number, but can still use their own mobile phone for work—just by using the Dialpad app!


Acquia is a Software as a Service (SaaS) company with global support and teams. They needed an easy-to-use cloud phone system that supported international calling and was easy to set up during employee onboarding.

At a third of the cost of their previous provider, Dialpad gives Acquia's employees (whether they’re in the office, working remotely, or on the road) easy access to their business phone system so they can keep in touch with customers and prospects all around the world.
