iPhone ~ how to dial USA phone in Europe!

Jump to last reply

We are leaving for Italy next month. I have a US based iPhone and will be buying the premium service for a few dollars a month from AT&T that reduces incoming/outgoing rates to .99. Local AT&T store said to pay for 3 months (AT&T landline call said 2 months) because that is how long the Euruopean companies have to charge AT&T back. That way I will be charged the .99 rate instead of the 1.29 rate.

I am also getting conflicting "opinions" between the AT&T store and landline phone conversation with AT&T about how to dial.

To further confuse me, I Googled and got different information.

Help me with how to do the following (assuming AC210 cell number 123-4567)

~ people trying to call me in Italy from US:

From cell phone in US: 2101234567
From landline in US: 011392101234567 (store and landline info conflicts)

~ me trying to call while in Italy:

To US: +1210-1234567 (+ sign appears by pressing and holding the 0 key?)(do you press - or is that a spacer?)
Within Italy: idential to how an Italian would call a number with a landline
How would somebody in Italy try to reach my cell phone? Any difference in somebody in Italy calling me with cell or landline?:

~ me trying to call while in Italy to get voice mail:

I don't have a clue.

Please review what I have entered above and please correct me or fill in the blanks.

By the way, AT&T ~ both store and landline ~ said they do not publish any brochure, phamplet, etc. explaining the process.

Thanks!
