Dec. 3rd Tip - Use phone cards from the US and how to dial other countries

December 3rd, 2007

“How do I call from the US to other countries?”

To place calls from the US to other countries, you need to dial in the following format:

011 + Country Code + City Code + Number

For U.S. and Canada numbers, along with some Caribbean countries, you only need to dial 1 + Area Code + Number.

When using a phone card, first you need to dial the access number. You will be prompted to enter your PIN and will hear the available balance on your card. You will then be prompted to enter the number you would like to dial. You will need to enter the number as stated above for locations outside the U.S.

Depending on the phone card you purchase, you may need to dial the pound key (#) after you enter this. Please look at the dialing instructions you receive with your phone card to see how you need to dial for that phone card. Some global phone cards require a different prefix to be dialed before the phone number.

    ZapTel - The Best Long Distant Carrier Out There I have been with ZapTel for more than 3 months and they are the very best that I have ever found. I call alot internationally. They are honest and reliable. I have tried many other carriers and they can’t come close to this service. I highly recommend them! They know what “truly customer service” is all about. No doubt in my mind. Keep up the good work ZapTel!!!
