In the second half of 2019, China's regulatory body, China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) changed its outbound calling regulations, to only accept conversational traffic from known callers. These changes may result in select calls being incorrectly flagged as fraudulent, junk, or spam by the Chinese regulators.
First, in order to make outbound calls to China using a Chinese caller ID (CLI), you must be pre-authorized by AVOXI. AVOXI will supply you with your very own CLI/Inbound Number with the ability to make outbound calls.
If you are attempting to make outbound calls with a Chinese CLI and have not already been pre-authorized or are not using the CLI provided to you by AVOXI, your calls will be blocked. In order to get pre-authorized, please contact your AVOXI account manager.

China's international dialing code is +86. The most popular toll-free services in China include the 400 number prefix, though 800 toll-free numbers are also available. Mobile phone numbers have 11 digits, while local numbers may have between 8 and 11 digits.
China 400 numbers are the favored substitute to 800 toll-free numbers. A single 400 number can be reached from a landline and mobile devices anywhere in mainland China. 400 numbers are shared-cost, meaning callers only pay local call rates. To learn more visit 800 vs 400 Numbers in China.
