Ghana code for all phones +233 ,often 00233 or 011233. Mobile phone system well advanced ,many providers ,all good.Ghanains already use phones to transfer money [ as phone credit ] and many have dual sim phones.
Vodaphone has recently changed the landline codes. They are as follows: Greater Accra: 030 Western: 031 Ashanti: 032 Central: 033 Eastern; 034 Brong Ahafo: 035 Volta: 036 Northern: 037 Upper East: 038 Upper West: 039
So, if the call is to a land line, the number would be like this (from the USA) 011 233 30 (Accra city code) xxx xxx.
If you are bringing your mobile phone from another country, be sure it is unlocked and can be used here. Carry your travel charger and an extra battery if available. Some phones from the USA will not work here, even if the SIM chip looks similar. An inexpensive alternative would be to purchase a cell phone here (for as low as $35-40) which will give you a low end phone . The main phone market of many in Accra is at 'Freddies corner' [ just above Circle] Latest iphone 4s 64's @ $1000 !! Here you can get your phone unlocked while you wait or buy one for your visit. It is not expensive and is an essential must have item.
Phones are pay as you go and traders sell 2 or 3 types of strip from ghc 2 up everywhere.They will be pleased to load it for you as well.
