    When I arrive in NY later this week I assume my cell will show Verizon or some other network on its screen.
    To call a US cell, e.g. (516) 220 ???? should I just enter those digits, or 1 plus those digits, or some other combination?
    I’ve read FAQ but it didn’t seem to cover this query,
    Thanks

    Hi Travis,

    Your UK phone will work just like a US cell. You will be able to dial local US calls by just entering the 7 digit local number or also 3 digit area code + 7 digit local number (as you suggested above). Since you might not know which calls are local you can just add 1 to the 10 digit number – this combination will work for all calls: 1 ??? ??? ????.

    Looks like a California phone number. I see you are in the UK. To dial this number just replace the starting plus sign with 00.

Heads-up: some information on these forums could be outdated - countries change their numbering plans periodically.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.
