  Dubai City Information SiteCalling Cards to Dubai

There are many nuances with all sorts of calling card companies
out there today. Some round up to the next minute, some will charge a
connecting fee and some will charge you even if you cannot connect. 

You can't call
Dubai from my cell phone unless you are
willing and able to pay a stash per minute. Charges are just too high. Instead,
consider getting calling cards to
to stay in touch with your friends, relatives and other colleagues. 
I have recommended two very good companies that I
have had no problems dealing with. They not only offer calling cards to
Dubai but also to a lot
of other places all around the world. 
Now if you are in
Dubai, the companies won't be of use to you.
Calling cards in
are available in grocery stores and not online. Most stores carry these cards
and they are often available for 50 Dhs and up. This is approximately $12. 
Because I call the UAE region often to stay in
touch with my friends, colleagues and business acquaintances, I have gathered
the city codes for dialing to the different areas. 
The country code, also known as the calling code
or routing number to the UAE is +971. Once dialing that code, you have to input
the area code (see chart below). So for
you will have to enter 4. 
Keep in mind the 4 is for land lines. If you want
to reach a
cell phone you will have to dial a 50. It takes time to make it a habit but it
will soon become one if you call often enough. 
If you are calling from the
US, you need to
dial 011 before 971 and then the city code and the number of your destination.
Dubai phone numbers are on the same 7 digit system as the
But like I mentioned above, do not dial directly
from your land line or cell phone unless you are willing to pay your rent
toward your phone bill. Instead use a calling card from Raza or Comfi
I have used both services and am very happy with
my experience with each. I had a minor complaint about Raza once and I called
to address it. The representative gave me a free $10 credit quickly without any
These companies are not only good for calling
Dubai or the UAE but
anywhere else in the world. I've done a lot of research and these two offer the
best rates without any hidden charges or fees. They don't cheat you out of your
credits either and have excellent customer service reputation. 
Comfi is definitely the better one of the
two and my number 1 choice. They have all kinds of special offers going on all
year like free trials, free 100 minutes, etc. Raza also has its own share of
promotions so make sure you check their latest promotion before
