Toll-free numbers start with 0800 in Egypt. There is a partial and hard-to-search list
of them on the site Telecom
Calling an 800 number in the States from Egypt is not toll-free; in fact, it costs the
same as an overseas call. In 2007, Cairo phone numbers (city code 02) were
changed from 7 to 8 digits. The rule of thumb is, on the west side of the Nile (Giza,
Mohandiseen, Agouza, Dokki, and so on), add a 3. On the east side of the river, and
in the middle of the river (downtown, Heliopolis, Maadi, Garden City, Zamalek, and
Manial), add a 2. Meanwhile, mobile numbers are all 10 digits and do not need an
The three letters that define much of the world's wireless capabilities are GSM
(Global System for Mobile Communications), a big, seamless network that makes
for easy cross-border cellphone use throughout Europe and dozens of other
In the U.S., T-Mobile and Cingular Wireless use this quasi-universal system; in
Canada, Microcell and some Rogers customers are GSM; and all Europeans and
most Australians use GSM. GSM phones function with a removable plastic SIM
card, encoded with your phone number and account information. If your cell phone
is on a GSM system, and you have a world-capable multiband phone such as many
Sony Ericsson, Motorola, or Samsung models, you can make and receive calls
across civilized areas around much of the globe.
Just call your wireless operator and ask for international roaming to be activated on
your account. Unfortunately, per-minute charges can be high -- usually $1 to $1.50
in Western Europe and up to $5 in places such as Russia and Indonesia.
For many people, renting a phone is a good idea. In Egypt, you will need to buy or
rent a handset, buy a phone number, and purchase a prepaid phone credit.
Many five-star hotels' business centres rent phones, too.The Conrad and the Four
Seasons, for example, will supply you with a handset for around LE150 a day
($9/£6). With a perfectly functional, low-end handset running LE350 to
LE700 ($21-$42/£14-£28) on the local market, however, it makes sense just to buy
if you're going to need it for more than a couple of days.
SIM cards and phone numbers can be purchased for about LE200 ($12/£8) from
almost any store advertising the products of one of the three local mobile service
providers: Mobinil, Vodafone, and Etisalat. You will have to give them a copy of
your passport and fill out a form.
Prepaid credit, available where you buy your SIM card and phone number, But I
