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: ...

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 ...

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 ...

Yes, if you are roaming from the UK, then you should usually dial a foreign country exactly as you would at home. Bear in mind that prefixing with +39 is more likely to work on mobile than 00 39. Note that to add a + on iOS 10 for iPhone you have hold the 0 key for one second.

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 ...

If you want to receive phone calls, just make sure you have roaming enabled. You can call your operators to confirm, I believe sometimes you have to explicitly enable it. In countries I've lived in, enabling the service itself was always free. Virgin for example provides instruction for setting up roaming in your account, similar thing should available for ...

There are mainly 3 mobile network operators in Vietnam. Viettel is currently the biggest one and also the only one that invests in other countries (Cambodia, Laos, Haiti, Peru...). It has very good coverage in rural areas. In remote islands or highland areas the only operator is Viettel. Reason for those? It's operated by the Ministry of Defence so they must ...

Prepaid connections that are bought from outside the J&K state do not work in J&K (Leh is in J&K). If you want your connection from else where in India to work in Leh you would need a post paid connection. Mobile phone connections from abroad which are post paid will work as well. I have tried a UK EE mobile sim and it works for both data and ...

It will work fine, you can check for any phone and network at sites like Willmyphonework.net, where both US models of the iPhone 7 come up clear for all NZ phone networks on all frequencies (2G, 3G, 4G). On a side note, you are required to pay import taxes on the phone when you take it home to New Zealand. The value of the phone (even a few months after ...

There are 4 major network operators in Vietnam. The three largest - Viettel, Mobifone and Vinaphone are all government owned, and right now all have very similar prices. You're looking at about 120,000VND (about $6) for 1.5GB of data which will expire after 30 days. Vietnamobile is a smaller operator, part owned by Hutchison (who own the various 3 networks ...

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 ...

You can purchase a "pay as you go" SIM with a data "pack" or "bundle" on arrival from a mobile phone shop, convenience shop or vending machine (some airports and train stations). You can expect to pay £1 for the SIM (free SIMs are available but difficult to obtain if you don't have a UK postal address) and £10 for a 500MB data pack (which will also include a ...

Just arrived in Hanoi. Bought a Mobiphone card. Was unable to data share towards a second phone with an USA number. A Vietnamese local advised that her phone with Vinaphone network does share data. Went back to the company at the airport that sold the Mobiphone card. Correct... You can not share data with a Mobiphone card. Bought a second card from ...

Voip.ms does and did since at least 2017, as the [Voip.ms] Received SMS message from short code number forum thread attests -- if you read the thread, the receiver also sent one, too. The announcement [Anveo] Support for Short Code SMS/Texting in USA is now live is from 2014. These are the two large VoIP SMS providers and they both do. A powerful ...

Do you have 'WiFi calling'? If so it may work when you use the new SIM's data service. Edit: changed should work to may work, based on a comment below.

There are public phones in Cuba, and they look like this In order to call you need phone card (tarjeta propia) sold at ETECSA stores, it has blue color. Phone cards are sold in CUCs ($5, $10, and $20) and in Cuban national currency (3, 5, and 7 pesos). Addresses of ETECSA stores are listed here. UPDATE: there are three types of phones in Cuba though: the ...

Yes, you will have mobile connectivity. I used Airtel several years ago, worked pretty well. You will need to buy the sim in Ladakh. Naturally, you will have proper coverage in the Leh, but in the way or in the villages around much less change. This website (Hebrew) have several useful tips (summary): Sim card that bought in India won't work in Leh, ...

eConnect is one company that I used when I was in Japan that I know has that, and they use NTT Docomo network. (it's specified under network if you go to the prepaid SIM page). I went to very isolated areas in Hokkaidō and it worked fine

The answer is "no". I found out at an inwi kiosk.

In the United States and Canada there are two different, and incompatible, cell phone technologies: GSM (which uses SIM cards) and CDMA (which does not). Both are being replaced by LTE (a SIM-card-based technology often marketed as "4G", although its adherence to the 4G standard is limited and thus its use of the term "4G" is controversial). Without knowing ...

If you're particularly worried about a specific area, for comparison, I managed to find some coverage maps on Sensorly: Coverage map for Telkomsel 2G-3G Coverage map for Three - 2G-3G Note that on either of those, you can change the drop down on the right for (at time of writing) five providers, to see their coverage.

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....

You may want to consider buying or renting a mobile hotspot and just getting a single sim for that. You can google “mobile hotspot rental” and see if it’s cheaper to do so from your home country or while in the USA. For example, AT&T and T-Mobile both have mobile hotspot plans. Just google around to find the best deal for you. Hotspot plans are often ...

Telus appears to have good 3G and some 4G coverage (search for G0E) of Gaspé and the roads leading around the outside of the peninsula, but no provider appears to have any significant coverage of the provincial park or most of the interior. I checked several other providers, but coverage was even worse. If I had to have a phone, I would go with Telus, but ...

You can check the (4G) coverage maps (dekkingsgebeid / dekkingskaart) of the Dutch network providers here: http://www.4gdekking.nl Have you tried switching to 2G or 3G? Or maybe KPN's coverage is a bit better – their coverage map looks more solid, but the best way to find out for sure is to buy a prepaid SIM and test it.

I happen to work for a full-blown multi-national phone operator. Yes, there are VOIP providers supporting it. There are many factors involved in getting this to work. VOIP providers are usually tiny players in the telecom iniustry and hence they usually buy telecom access from one big local operator. This means that they are limited by the bigger operator. ...

There are multiple companies that offer world wide coverage with unlimited (or nearly unlimited) data, text, and calling, without extra cost, for example Google Fi, or T-Mobile. Those offers depend on the country you are buying them in, so you should search around for each of the countries where you go to find the best offer. If your concern is mainly ...
