Call to cell phone in Ecuador

Can somebody tell me how to call a cell phone in Ecuador - nobody seems to know. I've tried the country code, city code and the number and it doesn't work.

The number you're calling may be blocked from accepting international calls - I was in Ecuador earlier this year and had that happen to me.....if this is the case the cell phone owner has to contact the carrier and ask them to unblock it - that can take days to occur.

Thanks for your reply - but he tells me that he receives calls from the US all the time - I just can't figure what numbers I'm supposed to dial before his cell number.

The area code for all cell numbers in Ecuador is 9. Put that in front of the seven-digit number and not the city code where your friend happens to be.

Yes (593 for Ecuador). If you are calling from the United States, then it's:

011 + 593 + 9 + seven-digit number

another area code for cell numbers in Ecuador is 8. So, dial 011 + 593 + 8 or 9 + number when trying to call the mobile
