When calling London from the US, what do I dial before dailing the number? I have an AT&T phone card?
Not sure about using a calling card but generally you dial 011 followed by country code (44) followed by the #
I have to call home all the time.
Let's use a fictional Nottingham phone number
0115 is the UK dialling code for Nottingham
9123456 is my home phone number
When I'm dialling from a standard phone in the US I dial 0044 to connect me to the UK
I then drop the 0 from the Nottingham dialing code so the next digits I press are 115
I then add my home phone number of 9123456
After a few seconds the phone rings and I'm connected.
So the full number I dial is 00441159123456
Do I write this down on a pad before I dial ? Every time !
How that works with an AT&T card I don't know but that's how I do it from office phones in Chicago, Dallas and Vegas.
Al...you sure you didn't dial 011 instead of 00 from phones in the U-S? 00 is the overseas access code in Europe, but for North America lines, it's 011 for station to station, and 001 for collect, etc.
