Telephones

The country code for Norway is 47. There are no area codes—you must dial all eight digits of any phone number wherever you are. Telephone numbers that start with a 9 or 4 are usually mobile phones, and are considerably more expensive to call. Five-digit numbers and telephone numbers starting with the prefix 810, 815, 820, and 829 often cost extra. Toll-free numbers begin with 800.

Most tri- and quad-band GSM phones work in Norway, so if your service provider offers service in Europe, you will likely be able to use your mobile phone along the Norwegian coast, even while hugging the shoreline on ship. Public telephone boxes are relatively rare.
