I am French but currently living in the US. I have a French cell phone number (+33XXXXXXXXX).

Would someone calling me from the US be charged an international call (the +33 prefix being more important than the actual geographical location of the phone)?

    The carrier that your contract is with can answer that. We don’t even know who that is, much less what is in that contract.

    The question isn't perfectly clear, but if you are asking what a US caller will be charged to call your French cell phone number then they will be charged whatever their plan charges to call a French cell phone number. It doesn't matter where the French cell phone is, the +33 number they dial determines their charge.

    Thank you Dennis, that answers my question (whever the +33 prefix matters more than my geographical location). I tried to rewrite the question to make it clearer, don't hesitate to post your answer so that I can validate it. Apr 5, 2021 at 19:33

    They will indeed be charged for a call to a French mobile number, and you will be charged for receiving a call while roaming.

  • If you are connected to WiFi, via local networks the easiest way to get around this is to ask folks to call you on a platform like WhatsApp, or Skype. Then you aren't actually using the telephone network, unless you are data roaming which is a bad idea internationally. Some providers, also provide SIP connectivity for mobile users. If you were one of those lucky people, you may find a direct SIP call would not cost you extra, the US caller would still be calling a foreign phone though so they would be charged unless it was a purely SIP-SIP call, which might be free. You may have options.
