I’ve noticed that some people find dialing-codes a bit too hard to understand. Have a look at these examples:
This sign outside Manna in Kloof Street has been there for at least 9 months.. I wonder if anybody noticed?
I noticed this one when I wanted to phone Monkey Valley Resort in Noordhoek, this image is on their website. Must be the monkeys :)
A quick google for “+27 861” found the knowledgeable people at iBurst implying that you can dial a South African 0861 number from anywhere in the world.
Some quick tips:
This was 0944 in the past, but Telkom changed this recently.
Lets hope the world changes to dialing “email account” style user IDs with SIP phones soon.
