      I’m moving to the US for a yaer (to start) with, and try to get things done, but now I start to doubt how to save amarican numbers on an american cell phone? Can you store american numbers on your cell phone with +1, or will it not work?

      On my danish mobile any number can be stored with ‘+’ and ‘destination country code’ including danish numbers. I.e. it will work calling +45xxxxxxxx, even when in Denmark. Denmark being ‘+45’ 🙂 All my numbers right now are stored liked this in the adress book. +1, +45, +46 (swedish numbers), + etc….

      Reading on this page everywhere it is written that calling inside NANP, you should use a syntax like: ‘1’ + ‘area code’ + xxx-xxxx.

      What about ‘+1’ + ‘area code’ + xxx-xxx?

      the ‘+1’ would be preferable, since the adress bokk wil then be global 🙂


        Hi Elise,

        Sorry for the late reply – I wasn’t sure what to answer. I know exactly what you’re talking about, but since I don’t live in the US I didn’t know for sure the answer to your question. Someone I know who lives in the US said that yes, this feature has been implemented over ther also. I will further investigate and if there are any doubts I will let you know. It is possible that not all US wireless carriers allow dialing this way.

      Heads-up: some information on these forums could be outdated - countries change their numbering plans periodically. We recommend using our top menu to double check the correct instructions for dialing to a specific country.
