Has anyone used a Cingular phone from Venice to the USA or from one Cingular phone to Another while in Venice? I do have a Cingular GSM phone that is should work but nobody seems to know what I need to dial to get the call through. Has anyone done this? Thanks

1. Re: Cell Phones

provided it's a "world" phone (tri-band), you dial the number by "+" followed by country code followed by phone number.

To call USA (617)555-1212 : +16175551212

To call Italy (081)222 3456 : +390812223456

"+" is entered by pressing "0" continuously

To call another Cingular phone in Venice, follow USA instructiona above. So both parties pay LD and roaming. Should investigate using text messaging instead with that phone. WAY cheaper.
