    I live in the United States and received a reply to an old car I'm selling from a fellow in New Zealand. I have his first name only and phone # - (0061210221????). If I start with exit # (011) add in NZ code (64)and then toss in 14 more digits will I actually have dialed correctly? I can't tell if the # is 7-9 digits for cell service or has trunk codes added. Maybe you could clue me in.

    Hello,

    The short answer is no:)

    The number you have is supposed to include all the codes needed for you to call back. However, 00 (the code they use in NZ to dial internationally) must be replaced with 011 since you are in the US. One thing I don't understand is why you have 00 61 (61 is Australia's country code). You should have 00 64. The rest of the number looks like a NZ cell phone. So anyway, try dialing 011 64 210221???? to see what happens. If this were an Australian number you would have had 9 digits for the actual number and not 10.
