Making international calls on your Iphone may seem straightforward until you give it a try and realize you are not able to connect the call. International calls require you to dial an exit code and a country code before the actual number. To make an international call from the USA with your Iphone, you would dial 011 and then the country code of the destination followed by the phone number. You can either dial international numbers directly using the dial pad on your Iphone or install mobile calling apps best suited for international calling.
To make an international call using the Iphone dial pad, simply dial the exit code (for USA, it's 011) or dial "+" followed by the international country code and then the phone number. For example, if you want to call 0950871785, a United Kingdom number from the USA, you would dial 01144950871785 or +44950871785, Remember to remove the leading zero. In this case, 011 is the USA exit code and 44 is the UK country code.
Most people are often shocked when they receive their monthly bills after making international calls with their Iphones. The reason is because cell phone providers tend to charge more for international calls than they do for domestic calls. Most domestic calling plans have unlimited minutes for local/domestic calls only. To avoid unexpected bills, it is better to use a second option for making international calls with your Iphone : International Calling Apps
To avoid unexpected bills from your cell phone provider, you can make international calls on your Iphone using apps from the App Store.
Simply go to the app store and search for international calling apps. You will find several options that you may choose from. We recommend Otubio for the best value international calls. Once downloaded, most international call apps on the Iphone will let you make the calls with ease. Simply open the app and call like you would with the native Iphone dial pad. Since international call apps specialize in long distance calling, you tend to get cheaper calls than using your cell phone provider directly.
