Calling a fixed line or landline number in the Philippines is simple and straightforward. All you have to do is to dial the 7-digit telephone number. However, if you are calling from a different region or province, you may need to include an area code to successfully connect with the person you’re calling.
For example, if you are in Manila and you want to call someone in Cebu, you don’t simply dial the 7-digit telephone number of the person you’re calling. You should include the area code 32 before the phone number. So if you want to call the telephone number 234-2053, you dial 32-234-2053 instead.
The key is to know the area code of the telephone number you want to call. If the number you’re calling is in the same area code as yours, then you don’t need to include the area code. You can dial the telephone number straight away.
If you’re calling a landline number from your mobile phone, you will always have to include the area code, regardless of your location. So if you are in Manila and you want to call a landline number in Manila using your mobile phone, you will still need to include the area code.
For those residing outside the Philippines, you must include the country code 63 as well as the area code of the landline number.

Domestic long-distance calls to locations with the area code 2 (Metro Manila, Rizal, Bacoor City and San Pedro, Laguna) require the prefix 0 before the area code.
