We add countries as and when local conditions permit.

Unfortunately Egypt can't be added just yet.

Unfortunately we aren't able to add every area code in the UK yet but we're working on it. Although the Isle of Man is not politically a part of the UK it belongs to the UK telecommunications network.

no it doesnt help my issue, 

we are apart of the british isles, which is ruled by the queen of england, and our phone network is manx not english or british, but manx, we have our own government, which is ruled by the queen, and again, our telecomunication network is not owned or controlled by the uk, so i don't know where you get your information from, 

 

so because the queen of england, governs the isle of man, the isle of man is part of british isles uk.

Hello,

The information I provided is correct. Please see here:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isle_of_Man 

"but the island never became part of the kingdom of Great Britain or its successor the United Kingdom, retaining its status as an internally self-governing Crown dependency"

and here:               

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isle_of_Man#Communications 

"The island does not have its own ITU country code, but is accessed via the UK's country code (+44) and the island's telephone numbers are part of the UK telephone numbering plan with local dialling codes 01624 for landlines and 07524, 07624 and 07924 for mobiles".
