  • Guide to Different Telephone Area Codes in the Philippines
  • People who normally use the telephone as a communication device usually get confused on what to dial. Some are not aware of different area codes they should use before being able to reach or contact their family or peers situated in other regions in the country.

    Unlike using mobile phones where you can talk to your contact in just a click of a finger, using the telephone also mean memorizing and dialing a series of numbers before being able to talk directly to a particular contact.
