  • The Journey Begins

    1. Irancell has an international roaming agreement with the destination country.
    2. The roaming service is activated by MyIrancell application or dialing *1111*1# from your SIM card.
  • Making Calls

    If someone outside Iran wants to call you, s/he should dial just as if you are in Iran. For example:

    • Calls from Iran: 09351550400
    • Calls from countries other than Iran: 00989351550400

     

    To make a call to Iran or another country from the visited country, act as if you are making an international call:

    Country code + area code (drop 0) + telephone number

    For example: 00982112345678

    To make a call to the country you’re in, act as if you’re making a local call.
