    Ok so I was given a ten digit UK number and I can't figure out how to text it. It is 007 and then 7 numbers...10 total.
    So if I have 007XXXXXXX, I know I need to add +44... But what else do I need to add? The person is also currently IN the us. Do I add a 7 to the front of that? +44 7 007 XXXX XXX? Help!

    Hello,

    UK mobile numbers have 10 digits and they all start with 7. You can't have a mobile or any phone number starting with 00 anywhere in the world. Double zero is used by Europeans to call internationally (the equivalent of the US 011).

    Indeed you should enter +44 or 011 44 to text the UK number, but after 44 you should have 10 digits with 7 being the initial digit:
