Teams, Dialing international

On this page, you can learn how to make an international phone call in Teams as well as find some popular country codes.

When specifying phone numbers, use the format for international phone numbers. Type the international call prefix (011 for international calls), country code, and the local number. Phone numbers should contain only the digits 0123456789. You do not need to type parentheses or hyphens.

Some countries have an extra 0 at the beginning of their numbers that should not be included when dialing from the US.

The following table shows examples of how to convert a local phone number into the format Teams requires.
