then the phone number.
For an example, calling
Karlsruhe, Germany would go something like this:
011, (International calling
then 49 (Germany country code)
then 721 (Karlsruhe city code)
then the number. In
Germany, some numbers are 7 digits, but mobile/cell phones/handys (as they are
called in German) can have 8 or 9 digits in the number. Some countries can
have phone numbers with only 4 or 5 digits. Just something to keep in mind
if it's different than you expect it to be (with the 7 digit standardization
here in the U.S.)

from your home phone, you
would be dialing long distance to Germany directly. When doing this, you can be
charged over (overcharged) $1.00/minute. CallingAdvice.com's webmaster

the large phone companies (but their identity has been protected because they do
offer cheap calling as well).
tell you in many places on this site, International (and national) calling can
be very cheap. So use the advice on these pages and find out how to make
international calling less expensive for yourself. It will probably take
you about 10 minutes to find a good calling card or calling plan, sign up for
it, and be able to use it in a couple of days or a couple of seconds (most of

email account. As soon as you receive this PIN and dialing number, you're
on your way). That is a very small inconvenience if it saves you even 10%
on what you currently spend for national and international calling.
