How do I make a cell phone call, it's so frustrating with all the codes?

It’s true they are, but generally if dialing international including within the EU, make sure the country code is complete (i.e. 0044 the prefix for England).

  • If your calling Europe from your home country (not in Europe) dial the country code first then the phone number
  • For international calls (to dial outside the country)-drop the 0

00 + Country Code + Area Code + Local Number

  • For national calls within the same country, but to a different city = If within the country, normally many times a 0 is necessary in front to complete the call.
  • For local calls within the same city it is best to use the same as above
