anyone know how to dial international when you are oversea to another country... for example calling from spain to belgium and so on... cingular shows you how to dial from oversea to the US of A..but it doesn't show u how to dial to another nations... thanks
use the plus sign, the country code, and then the number. so Spain would be +33xxxxxxx.
Just be careful because some numbers might be given to you with a prefix that is only used within the country -- for example, UK numbers are usually shown with a 0 in front of them, i.e. 44 (0) 20 xxxxx, but that first 0 is only used when dialling from another UK number. So the number you would actually enter would be +4420xxxxx.
BTW, the plus ("international format") works anywhere; it's part of the GSM standard. It was put in place because different countries have different int'l dialling prefixes (011 in North America, 00 in Europe, etc) and allows you to call the same number from anywhere in the world without having to remember what the local prefixes are.
Dial the same as you would from the US. However keep in mind if you are overseas, i believe you will pay the intl roaming fee for that country + the intl long distance rate for the call from the country your in to the country your calling, based on if you were really in the US.
Buying a prepaid sim would be much more economical if you plan to do any amount of calling.
I travel internationally a lot, and in some countries you may have to manually connect to a different provider to place calls. The provider my Nokia 6820 connects to sometimes will only allow me to receive calls. In some cases I've been unable to call into a country other than the USA (Last week I tried to call Italy from China w/o success). If you have people in your phone book, you can set them all up with the '+' then country code to ease your dialing. I have all of my phone book set up this way and it makes it convenient when traveling outside the USA.
