    I have a friend who works on a Greek Cruise ship. He is from Egypt but I believe the cell phone he is using is from Greece so that it works on the ship. He gave me a phone number to call and told me to use the country codes but I keep getting a recording saying that the "the subscriber has switched off his terminal." Does that mean I am calling the wrong number? or country code? Does that mean he doesn't have voice mail when the phone is switched off? The number I am calling is: 011-30-6994318???. The number he gave me is 6994318???. Thanks.

    Hi Marilyn,

    If you are getting this message you are dialing the right digits. Most likely your friend either has his phone turned off or he has no coverage. Voicemail usage is not so popular in Europe and many cellular subscribers disable this service so people calling them don't get charged when they are not in a coverage area.

    Thanks for your reply. I finally did get a call to go thru to him in Greece. Now my question is -- I called him so AT&T will charge me my international roaming charges, (which is fine), but does he get charged roaming charges when I call him? Thanks for all your help!

    You will pay international rates charged by AT&T to call a Greek cell phone. Your friend would only pay roaming charges if, at the time of your call he were outside of Greece with his cell using another country's wireless operator. If he was in Greece he will incur no charges for received calls.
