|Links and Other Resources|
The following are various links and sources of information on telephone numbering and related matters. Please note that these links are not part of WTNG, but are the responsibility of their respective authors.
The International Dialing Resource Center has general information on international dialing.
The World Wide Phone Guide features telephone standards throughout the world, intended for travelling modem users.
The International Telecommunications Union (ITU) is the global organisation responsible for telecommunications standards, including the assignment of telephone country codes. Their Operational Bulletin lists changes to national telephone numbering formats in the "Telephone Service" chapter. However, current editions of the Bulletin are only available on the paying service, and not available for general web access. There may be other generally accessible ITU information (press releases, E.164 country code lists, etc.).
ITU also has a series of International Country Codes lists.
Also see ITU's page of International Numbering Resources which is collecting numbering plan details for some nations.
Of course, when calling around the world, knowledge of the time zone of the called party can be helpful. Check the US Navy World Time Zones list and the ITU Legal Time list (1 March 2011, Annex to ITU Operational Bulletin #975)
