    Hi, I’m in the UK and my German friend will be coming to the UK next week, and I have a few questions

    1) When she’s in the UK do i call her number as 0049 1????????? or 49 1????????? or does it now become the national form of 01?????????
    2) To contact me should she call 0044 7????????? , 44 7????????? or 07?????????
    3) In each case will calls be at the UK national rate?

    Grateful for any help you can give, Cheers


    Hi Leroy,

    1)When your friend is in the UK you will dial internationally using 0049 1…
    2)To place calls her phone must be used just like yours; in other words she would dial 07…
    3)None; when you will call her you will pay international charges as if you were calling Germany (which you will because the call will be redirected from Germany back to the UK); your friend will also pay roaming charges for receiving calls; when she calls you she will pay a rate that is usually higher than what you pay for local calls (rate info will be provided to her by the German wireless carrier).

    I hope this helps. Perhaps you would be both better off buying a UK prepaid sim card for her phone.

Heads-up: some information on these forums could be outdated - countries change their numbering plans periodically.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