    I am trying to call

    024 7622 4422 in Coventry

    I realize the USA code is 011, and the UK code is 44. But I CANNOT figure out how to do it.

    I have enabled International calling on my phone. It's just a matter of knowing how to actual dial and connect. I can't do it.

    Please help.

    011 44 2476224422
    or + 44 2476224422
    + is next to "Call" on the left side

    Nope, that would be from Europe.

    From here, 01144247 etc. Drop the leading 0 from the UK STD (area) code.

    Cheers, a brit in the old colony.

    The plus on the left side is to add the number to your contacts. Hold zero to dial +.

    If it does not work are you sure that calls to other countries are not blocked on the phone you are using.

    that'll do it (or a + instead of 011)

    but if you're new to AT&T (if that's your carrier) you might need to call them and check that intl dialing is enabled for your account...

    This worked

    You dropped the 0 off the beginning of the number, which I guess was an unnecessary "prefix", sort of like the 1 here in the states. I finally got through.

    and got an answering machine =/

    Press and hold the zero key to get a +

    then type in +44 then the number, then hit call, works for me when I call my UK friends.

    I don't know if anyone is interested...but my gf lives in france ( i am going to move soon ) and i call her all the time.... The trick is get those world calling cards they sell at gas stations. Depending on which one i get ( or they have ) i can get almost 8 hours on a 5 dollar card. They should all have local access #'s so you won't have to pay those nasty internationall rates... Just make sure you call to a land line phone though... the cell rates are stupid with the cards.
