Texting from Canada to other countries?
Texting family and friends in other countries from Canada, is easy-peasy with worldwide text messaging supported by over 1,000 international mobile operators.
How it’s done
To send a text internationally:
- Enter the exit code for Canada (aka the international access code).
- Enter the country code + area code + mobile phone number of the person you are texting.
- Give your fingers a well-deserved stretch (but don’t drop your phone).
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|
