US-based Cell Phone in Europe

Jump to last reply

My wife and I are going to both take our US-based cell phones to Europe. I understand all the cost issues. That's not my question. What I don't understand is what numbers get dialed. My understanding is that if someone in the US wants to call me, they simply dial as if I were sitting back in Des Moines. Correct? How about if someone in another country wants to call me, say Germany?

Then there are the questions about what I dial to make calls. How about if I want to call the US? How about if I want to call my wife while we are both in France? How about if I am in France and want to call my friends in Germany? How about if I am in France and want to call a local French number?

I know there is someone out there who has figured all this out, and I thank you in advance for your help.
