how can i make an international call - dial 1 first or just dial country code?

Re: international calls

'1' first is country code for US and a domestic call.  Generally, dialing '011' then the country code and number is the dialing format for international calls from the US.  I don't have phone service thru my Comcast account so I don't know if international dialing is different.

 

Dialing just the country code first might confuse the local routing switches, thinking the first three digits are an area code (dialing 1+ for domestic LD is not mandatory).  The '011' triggers the switches to route the call internationally.
