Cannot connect to SA 087 number dialling from UK mobile

My son has a cellphone contract with O2 in the UK and he cannot connect to my 087 number.

1) Is this a problem with O2 or with all UK networks?

2) Will he be able to connect if I port my 011 geographic number or will the network still see it as a non-Telkom number and so not connect?

Hi Norman, 

Unfortunately, 087 number cant be called from international destinations. Should you port your 011 number he will be able to.

Thank you.  Just tested from a landline from the UK and they were able to dial me.  May just be mobile networks??


Hi Norman,

That could be a possibility.

Thank you.
