How it’s done

To send a text internationally:

  1. Enter the exit code for Canada (aka the international access code).
  2. Enter the country code + area code + mobile phone number of the person you are texting.

  3. So, for example, if you are texting to a mobile number in the Philippines (country code 63), the complete mobile phone number may look like this:

    Network Exit code Country code Area code Phone number
    LTE, HSPA, UMTS + 63 907 123 4567
    CDMA, EVDO, 1XRTT 011

    If your network is LTE, HSPA or UMTS:

    Exit code Country code Area code Phone number
    + 63 907 123 4567

    If your network is CMDA, EVDO or 1XRTT:

    Exit code Country code Area code Phone number
    011 63 907 123 4567

  4. Give your fingers a well-deserved stretch (but don’t drop your phone).
