    Are any country codes needed to call a cell while that cell is in another country?

    In other words, to reach a cell that is from Country#1 and that is traveling abroad to Country#2, is the Country#1 code required to call or text that number while it is in Country#2?
    Or would it be the country code of Country#2?


    When a Canadian cell phone is in another country you may call or text it from Canada without adding any international codes – just use whatever number you use when that same cell phone is in Canada.

    If you too are traveling outside of Canada use +1 followed by the 10 digit Canadian phone number. Instead of +1 you can also use 001 while calling/texting from any European country.
