    I’ve checked the country and exit codes, but am still a little confused about using the plus signs. Please help. Many thanks.


    Once you’re using the exit codes for example 00 and then 44 you don’t need to dial the + sign in between.

    Simply dial 0044 then the required number.


    Yes, you don’t actually dial the plus signs we use in our dialing instructions. For a US call from Ireland you would actually dial: 00 1 ??? ??? ????. However, when you see a US number in the format +1 ??? ??? ???? you can actually dial the plus (when using a cell phone to call), or you can replace the plus sign with your country’s exit code (00 for Ireland and the UK). Below is a page where you can find more info on how the plus sign is used:

Some information on these forums could be outdated - countries change their numbering plans periodically.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.
