Hi I'm Ben from the Cellphone Broker in San Jose, California. Today I'm going to show you how to make an international call from your cellphone. There's two ways that you can do this. The first is you can purchase a prepaid calling card and that will bring down your wireless carrier rates. A lot of wireless carriers charge extra if you're calling internationally, they'll charge up to two dollars a minute depending upon where you're calling. So if you purchase a prepaid calling card that will bring that down and then you'll just pay for the calling card, you'll pay for your normal minutes that you use on the cellphone. From your cellphone without the use of a calling card, what you can do is you will dial 011, this is true on any country that you're calling, dial 011 and then dial the country code. Let's say I'm calling my dad in the Philippines right now, 011 then I'll dial 63 and then I'll dial his local number which would be something like that, I'm not exactly sure what it is, but it would be something like that. And then I would hit dial and it would dial that number. So 011 is always going to be dialed before the country code and before the country's area code where you're calling. 011 is kind of just there to let the company or the carrier know that you're dialing internationally before you place the call. So that will always be there, even if you're using a calling card you'll dial the PIN number from the calling card and then you will dial the 011, country code, followed by the area code and then followed by the phone number. You can lookup the country code that you're trying to, the country that you're trying to call by going online and just Googling that country's country code. Let's say I'm looking for the country for the Philippines, I'll just type in on Google, Philippines country code and it popped up the first website that was on there it said the country code was 63. So you can do that with any country, just go look it up on a search engine and it will pop up right away. I'm Ben from the Cellphone Broker in San Jose, California. Check out our web page,
