    How do I make an international call when I'm in the US?

    To place a call while in the US to a country that uses 10-digit dialing, simply enter the 10-digit phone number you want to call, then tap the Call button.

    To place a call while in the US to all other countries, you'll start with 011. Next, you must enter the country code, followed by the number you want to reach.

    For example, if you'd like to call a number in France:

    1. Enter 011 and the country code 33.
    2. Enter the phone number.
    3. Tap the Call button.

    For more information about dialing specific countries, visit our International Service Options (while in the US) page.
