Asked by Ms.Kelly Hoffman(US)
I am trying to call my husband in Shanghai on a Chinese cellphone he has been given there. The number is 352-424-9460, so I am dialing 011863524249460 from the US. It never rings (I get a fast busy). I have tried adding 21 for the city code (0118621 number), and I either get a ring with no answer, or a tape saying the number does not exist. I am wondering if some Chinese cellphones are blocked for incoming US cell calls? Any info is much appreciated-Thank you.
Answered by Ms. Evelyn
Are you sure that this is cell phone number? However, in China, the cell phone number is made up of 11 numbers. Obviously, another number is left out. I guess it should be '1'. The whole number group should be 135-2424-9460.Again I used the cellphone orientation system to verify. Very luckily, the cell phone number belongs to Shanghai. You may try again. By the way, when you call on a cell phone, no need to add the area code. Try 0086(0)13524249460.

Hello, the Shanghai zip code is right but you have a wrong spelling, that is nanjing west road not nanging.
