Hi

Just back from NYC where had problems dialling a US number on my UK mobile - wondering where I went wrong.

The number was 212-1111-2222 type format - well it started with 212!!!

So tried dialling:

001 212 etc
01 212 etc

What should I have dialled??
 
To the best of my knowledge, because your phone is using the American network you don't need to dial the 001, just the number as stated ........... 212 etc.

Cheers,

Martin.
 
When you are dialing out, you have to include the country code and the area code. With USA, there are different codes for the areas.
 
It should have worked if you did +1212 etc.

I tend to keep all my contacts stored in that style format. e.g. +447123456789 for a uk number of 07123 456789.
