Azercell, Bakcell, Nar Mobile, and Azerfon-Vodafone are the three mobile carriers.

  • The biggest is Azercell. To reach an Azercell number, dial (050) or (051) followed by the number. Only with Azercell can you communicate in Baku’s metro (subway).
  • Nar Mobile is reasonably priced, however it is not available in all areas. To reach Nar Mobile numbers, dial (070) followed by the number.
  • Azerfon-Vodafone is a new 3G operator. To reach Azerfon-Vodafone numbers, dial (077) followed by the number.
