    Let’s say I use a UK mobile and dial a US cell number that’s roaming in Canada. What charges will there be, both for the caller and the person receiving?

    Hi John.

    As far as calling charges are concerned it is not your business where someone is located. If the number you will be calling is a US number you will pay charges that apply for calls from the UK to the US.
    The person receiving the call will pay roaming charges if they are traveling in another country. I don’t know what these charges are for Americans traveling to Canada, it depends on the wireless provider, their roaming plan and so on.

    Thank you. What about the reverse – A person in Canada dialling the UK with a US cell number?

    They will pay international charges imposed by their US wireless provider (these charges are agreed upon between providers from US and Canada in this case). Basically the charges are higher than they would be when calling from the US because there is also the roaming charge. As the receiver of the call you will not incur any charges.

Heads-up: some information on these forums could be outdated - countries change their numbering plans periodically.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