    I'm in Zambia, and whenever I want Siri to make a call, it says "Dialing... Sorry, I cannot call XXXXX"

    Any help?

    Are you trying to call locally or internationally? Did you enable International Assist in Settings->Phone if the latter?

    Calling locally. It didn't work whether I added the country code or not

    Hi I am also based within Zambia using a Zambian simcard, and no matter what I do I cannot seem to get Siri to successfully call a local number from my contacts list.

    If I try to call a local number (10 digits) which could be in the format of:

    - 095 XXXXXXX (cellular)
    - 096 XXXXXXX (cellular)
    - 097 XXXXXXX (cellular)

    - 021 X XXXXXX (landlines)

    Siri fails. Also if I try to append in front the international Zambian dialling code of +26 or 0026 followed by the number it also fails.

    I am able to for example call out internationally to various numbers I tested in the UK & USA.

    Somebody mentioned going to Settings->General->International and inputting Zambia as my region. However, Zambia is not listed. If this is the problem, is there any way to spoof /trick Siri into using the above number format?

    Very frustrated, please help??
