    Hi, you have to dial 001144 then miss the first 0 from your UK number xxx

    Hi.

    International dialling code is 001144 then drop the first 0 from both mobiles and land line numbers.

    Cheers, Kazza

    I'm sure the above (two) methods work fine, but what I do (which also works fine) is +44 then the mobile number without it's first '0' - so +4477...... for a mobile number that starts 077.....

     

    You might have to play around to get the + sign on your particular phone, but once you've found it, you don't need the 0011...

     

    The 001144 will be needed if ringing a landline in the UK... although you can also buy a Phone Home Card (I use Aussie Phone Card - http://www.aussiephonecards.com.au) which entails you initially dialling a local number, then entering the UK number is, and you only pay something like half a cent per minute for UK land lines. This particular card lets you register a particular phone that you usually call from too so you don't have to enter your pin number each time.

    Get yourselves set up with skype as soon as you can. that way the calls are all free and you'll be able to see him as well. It has really helped us in the last 2 years, especially in the early days when eveyone was struggling with being so far away xxx
