XMission Voice International Calling Information

Dialing internationally

To call internationally, simply pick up the phone and dial these numbers as you would any local number:

011 [country code] [phone number]

011 Tells our system that you are about to place a call to another country.

[country code] The 2 or 3 digit code of the country you are callling (see our rates below, or consult any international code chart)

[phone number] The number inside that country you are dialing. This may look very different from phone numbers in the states, and may be longer.

For example, the speaking clock in Berlin is +49 30 2 555 7. You would dial:

011 49 30 2 555 7 without pauses.

Due to distance, connecting through various switches and some countries relaying calls through satellites, some international calls may take slightly longer to connect, than normal long distance calls. This is completely normal, yet we have no control over how long an international call takes to connect. If you are calling internationally for the first time, please be aware that alerts that you are used to such as the ringing sound, busy tone and others, may not sound similar to those used in the US and Canada.

International calling is a feature that should be enabled on all XMission Voice lines by default. However, if you find that this is not the case, or you would like to block international calling from your line, please contact our Technical Support line to have this feature switched for you.
