Receiving calls from the US to my cell phone

I will have an unlocked cell phone in Italy. How does someone call me from the US to my cell? Just dial my cell # or is there anything else they need to do? Thanks much.

Just be aware that anyone who might just happen to call you is going to ring through and you will be paying for that call. One time I was woken up at 2:00 a.m. by someone who didn't know I was in Europe and just wanted someone else's phone number.

Dianne, To begin with, could you clarify a couple of points..... > Have you determined that your Cell phone will work in Italy? Is it a quad-band and which network are you with? > If you're taking an unlocked phone, are you planning to use your existing SIM card or are you going to buy a SIM in Italy? If using your existing SIM card, why does your phone need to be unlocked? Without more specifics, it's difficult to answer your questions. Cheers!
