Anyone able to call Belize?

Post by Brooklyner » Mon Feb 14, 2011 11:33 am

I've tried calling Belize from the USA for a few days now and can't get through. It either rings and rings endlessly or rings once and switches to a busy signal immediately. This affects several different numbers I've tried. I've heard that Belize blocks Skype, does anyone know if this would affect incoming VOIP calls as well? Thanks!

Is there a 0 in the area code of the number? You try not including the 0?

I'm not sure what you mean. The area code is 501, so I dial 011-501-223-XXXX from the USA, correct? Either no one is answering their phones in Belize or something is not working right. Thanks for any help!

I looked up google...see some numbers with (0) in front of the 7 digits....

Maybe try 0115010 then 7 digits?

Ah ha, that appears to work! I slipped the extra '0' in after the country code and the call finally went through. Thanks for the help. :D
