It is not enough to use 61 as the country code. You must also use an area code. So +61 2 132221 for CBA IVR/VRU Be aware that 13 numbers are not always the same across all area codes or even regions that share the area codes. Annoying if it is used in a jingle and then does not work. If you are calling Centrelink (!) be very sure to tell them where they ...

13xxxx is a "magic" number. For instance, calling 131 888 will ring the nearest Domino's Pizza (to your location in Australia). Your number will presumably reach the nearest Kia dealer. From Wikipedia: 13 xx xx, 1300 xxx xxx and 1800 xxx xxx numbers can provide source-based routing, used by organisations such as pizza chains that advertise one ...

SQB covered it very well.. Six digit 13 numbers are generally for use only within Australia because the owner of the number might be charged for its use. That is also why there are significantly higher call rates for those numbers on Skype if you can get them to work. To call Australia landline numbers use either 001161 or +61 prior to the Australian number....

One approach that is generally useful for calling toll-free numbers (from outside the country they're intended to be used in) but, unfortunately, fails in the case of Australian toll-free numbers is to use Skype to phone (you need to have a credit to use the service, about $10 USD is the minimum): Yes, use the dial pad to enter toll free numbers on Skype....

To dial a number in another country, you first dial the international access code for your country, then the code for the country you're calling, then the actual phone number, usually omitting the first zero if any. You can replace the international access code with a + on mobile phones. The international access code for the US is 011. The country code for ...

Telephoning Kia from International may not be possible because of their short number - it may be a special number like a US 1-800 that doesn't work internationally. Australian landline telephone numbers are 8 digit. Australia uses eight digit local phone numbers preceded by a two digit STD area code. Source So the quoted 6 digit phone number is ...

Where are you getting the "1100" code from? That might be your problem. USA, Canada, and other countries in country code "1" use "011" as the international dialing prefix. You would normally dial: "011" - "I want to call a different country." "61" - Australia country code. "131 542" - The number in Australia. To call you, people in Australia would dial: ...

They aren't accessible from every country, but from the US it should be. [International dial-out code] + (61) + your inbound number should do the trick. So in this case, 1100, if that's your dial out code, 61, then 131542. Note: + usually means international too, replacing 00, so in my experience I just dial +61 131542. I'm not sure about the dial out ...

Next trip to France ask for a permanent SIM that can be topped up for specified periods and remains active SIM for 1 year after the last top-up receiving SMS even outside France during the year. They might need to register you using your passport/ID. Best part is when next year you are heading to France you can top up before your flight departure via your ...

The site for the plan you linked to has a "Recharger" link on it, unfortunately it is only in French. That would suggest that it can actually be topped off, you'd need to try. I think it would be the way to go instead of a second party website. The translation by Google suggests that you'd need to put in your number and then get possible payment options, I'...

Apparently it is indeed only valid for 14 days (aka it is dead now), previously we had prepayed card (refillable) that you could find in any bureau de tabac but I am not sure wether it still exist.

There are many places where you can buy it. One of them is a Telenor shop at Moskovska 20, in the center of Podgorica. A data service for 10 days costs 5 euro. If you want to make calls and send SMS, you have to top up your account with at least additional 2 euro. You must show your passport when you buy a SIM card.

When you are randomly selected for additional screening (which is a core part of TSA PreCheck as well as TAS procedures in general), the additional screening applies to you and all of your possessions. TSA knows that almost every passenger going through security has a cell phone, so when you didn't have one they queried that fact - if for no other reason ...

The Verizon Message+ app will let you send and receive text messages from any computer or phone, even when the phone does not have the SIM card for your Verizon service. It uses an Internet connection, so it does not incur any additional costs. If you don't want to install an app, you can also send and receive SMS from the Verizon web site.

There are three options which may or may not work well for you: Forwarding You keep your US phone back home in the US and try to have SMS messages forwarded while travelling. You will need to make sure your phone stays connected while you are away, though that shouldn't be too difficult. In order to have SMS forwarded somehow, either your operator has an ...

First of all, please note that there are 3 Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) in Canada providing services to ~90% of mobile phone users in Canada. Parent companies for these 3 MNOs are: 1- Rogers Communications (10M+ subscribers (subs) as of Q2-2016) [1] 2- BCE Incorporation (9M+ subs) [1] 3- Telus Corporation (8M+ subs) [1] These MNOs have subsidiary ...
