For calls within the roaming area, simply dial 1, the area code and telephone number.
For international calls, dial the international (0 or 011) plus the area code and telephone number.
For some cities, you may have to drop the 0 which comes before the country code E.g. for England, drop the 0 before the 44.
Local calls require just the area code and number.
For example, if you’re dialling a number in Alexandria Virginia while you are in Washington DC, just dial 1 703 for the area code and then the local number.
First, turn your mobile on.
After a few seconds, your mobile should automatically select a network. Your mobile is then ready to use. If your mobile does not automatically select a network, then you will need to do a manual network selection.
