    I have purchased an international sim card for my unlocked iphone 4s. I will be traveling to 5 different countries all in Europe. The company has given me lots of information, but after reading different things online I am confused about cell to cell international calling...to and from Europe. Is there any difference in how to dial (cell vs landline)? My kids only use cell phones...no land lines. (It is after hours to call them, so I'm asking you!) I have a UK number. I'm pretty sure that they just dial 011 447 and then the rest. I am told to just dial *1+area code + number+# to call out, but I am not sure if that is just for a landline.

    Hello Jo Anne,

    When using a landline to place calls you can not dial + because the phone's keyboard generally doesn't allow it. You can use + with any cell phone. The plus sign replaces the international access code (also known as Exit code) required to dial internationally.

    When calling internationally from the UK and any European country the exit code is 00. In order to call back to the US you either use 00 1 plus area code plus local number from any phone or, you can also use +1 ??? ??? ???? when calling from a cell phone.

    You are correct about how your kids should contact your UK cell from the US (011 44 7?? ??? ????).
