Calling Japan

    I'm trying to call my son in Japan on his cell phone, calling from U.S.A. I'm dialing 011-81 then his U.S. area code and cell #. I've called from both a cell and a land line and both times got a recording that I've reached a non-working number. Do I need to buy a calling card with a pin to use for calling Japan?

    Hi,
    You don't need to add 011 81 because you are actually dialing a US cell number roaming in Japan. Try dialing the number the way you do when your son is in the US. Here's a page explaining in detail how international roaming works.
