Helpful Tips

To Make Your Roaming Easy.

  • Your GSM phone assumes the characteristics of the network in each country you visit. 
    So if you are traveling in Italy, your phone will work like a local Italian device.
  • While roaming outside Iraq, be sure to make all international calls using the international format (+, then the country code, then the called number). 
    For example, to place an international call back to Iraq, dial +964, then number without zero. In most GSM devices, holding down the 0 key will cause the + sign to appear.
  • While roaming outside Iraq, be sure to make all national calls using the international format (+, then the country code, then the called number). 
    For example, to place a national call inside Jordan, dial +962, then number without zero. In most GSM devices, holding down the 0 key will cause the + sign to appear.
  • When you are abroad and turn on your phone, it will automatically search for local networks. Connection with the network usually occurs within 30-40 seconds. 
    When the name or network number of the local operator is displayed, your phone should be ready for use.
  • While roaming abroad and in most countries, you'll receive a welcome text message from Zain Iraq. 
    As soon as you arrive and switch on your phone, it should automatically connect to one of the local networks. If this doesn't happen, you can manually search for a network:
    • Go to the settings menu on your phone
    • Choose phone settings
    • Pick a network
