Refresher on how to make international calls with your phone card

December 21st, 2009

“How do I make an international call with my calling card?”

The first thing that you need to know about making an international call from the USA is to dial 011 + Country Code + City Code + Number.  Before placing a call with a phone card, though, it is important to read the card’s dialing instructions.

While the basics of dialing out of the USA to an international country are the same, each card could have slightly different instructions for placing a call.  When you purchase your phone card from ZapTel, the dialing instructions are e-mailed to you with your PIN.

You can also access this information from your account dashboard.  Click on the access number link next to your PIN.  This will bring you to the card specifications section.  The tab you’ll be brought to first is for the Access Numbers associated with your phone card.  When you click on the tab that says “Instructions,” you’ll see the dialing instructions for your phone card.

If you’d like to view this information before buying your phone card, click on the name of the card and then click on the “Instructions” tab as directed above.

If you’re following the instructions for your ZapTel phone card and are having trouble connecting, let us know.  You can reach our Customer Service Department at
