Need help right now! How do I call a foreign country from the US?

I am so sorry for using this forum for this question ... but I have been searching on the web and can't find an answer!

I need to call New Zealand. I have the phone number but it won't go through. Do I need to dial a country code first?

I'm not stupid, I just have never done this.

Please help!

The front section of your telephone book should have several pages of International Calling Codes, and that's what you need. First you dial 011 to get international access, then the country code, then the area code if any, and then the telphone number.

Yes, you need a country code.

Dial 011 + 64 = local number.

011 is the access for international dialing. 64 is the country code for New Zealand.

Sorry, didn't check before posting.

Dial 011 + 64 + local number.
