You might have encountered in the past, or might encounter in the future, a time when you are trying to call America from abroad.  For whatever reason the call didn't work.  This page should clear up the confusion you may have about how to call America from abroad.

Each country in the world is assigned a three digit number. Some countries have more than one three digit number, and you can find out what those international routing codes are at the area codes by continent page.

For purposes of demonstration, we'll use America.  Every long distance number in America is preceded by a 1.  (i.e. 1 + area code + 7 digit number).  America's international three digit dialing code is actually 001.  But when you call from within the US, you don't have to use 001.

Calling from Continental Europe and England:                    
        Europe operates on a standard set of numbering, and any time you call, you are going to be using 01 as the country code for America.  You may have a Calling Card which has slightly different instructions.  If that's the case, listen to the instructions, and do what they tell you to do.  It could be 001 or just 1.

Calling from China:                                                          
        It kind of depends on where you are in China, but China also has the standard 3 digit country code numbering system.  They also use three digits as the International calling code.  So make sure that you are entering 0-0-1 as the country code for calling America from China.  My advice is, if you can speak a bit of Chinese, ask for the IP or IC Calling Cards. (Phoenetically "wo-ah yow my IP" - Good luck!)  If you don't speak Chinese, get a calling card before you go.

Other:
        Most countries in the world will follow one of these two standards (01 or 001) for making calls from abroad to America.

One of the easiest ways to avoid having difficulties when you want to call America from abroad (when you travel especially) is to get a calling card in advance.  There are some very good international calling card searches highlighted in this site.
