Set a default area code or country code

You can use smart dialing to set a default area code and country code that's applied automatically to the contacts that you call, so you don't have to include a country code or area code with phone numbers that you add to the Contacts app.

  1. In the Phone app, swipe down from the top of the screen.
  2. Tap Settings > Smart Dialing.
  3. Do any of the following:
    • To change the default country code, tap Country Code. Tap a country.
    • To change the default area code, in the Area Code field, type an area code.
Tap any of the drop-down lists to change other smart dialing options.
