If I use
tel: I should write the international phone code, like that.
So far, so good, but I can’t find information on how to write a cell phone number in an “international” way, if there is one.
When dialing a number within the country you are in, you still need to dial the national trunk number before the rest of the number. For example, in Australia one would dial:
0 - trunk prefix 2 - Area code for New South Wales 6555 - STD code for a specific telephone exchange 1234 - Telephone Exchange specific extension.
For a mobile phone this becomes
0 - trunk prefix 4 - Area code for a mobile telephone 1234 5678 - Mobile telephone number
Now, when I want to dial via the international trunk, you need to drop the trunk prefix and replace it with the international dialing prefix
+ - Short hand for the country trunk number 61 - Country code for Australia 4 - Area code for a mobile telephone 1234 5678 - Mobile telephone number
This is why you often find that the first digit of a telephone number is dropped when dialling internationally, even when using international prefixing to dial within the same country.
