Can't call Canada

Can't call Canada

How do you call to Canada? First I dialed 1-905-xxx-xxxx but that didn't work. Then I tried 011-1-905-xxx-xxxx, but that didn't work either. Support was no help. I just switched to comcast voice from ATT.

Thanks for any suggestions.

Here is a link that says that you do not need to use the 011 country code from the US.

I think the link lists all of the Area codes that are accessible from the US.

Re: Can't call Canada

JamesR,

 

Thanks for the link, but it doesn't resolve my issue.  I was already doing what it shows.  Prior to Comcast and even with my cell phone I could call to Canada just like calling to the US (area code + phone).  Just don't understand why this is an issue.  I'll probably have to try support again and maybe get someone who can figure it out.

Re: Can't call Canada

Having the same problem -- unable to call Canada with 1+area code and 011+1+area code. Support just says dial 1 + country code, but it's not working. If you find a solution I would appreciate knowing what you find out!

Thanks

Sorry about the issues you are having. Try dialing 011 plus the country code for the area in Canada you are calling. I have several country codes available. If this option doesn't work then I can escalate for you.
