How can you use FaceTime internationally?
My daughter lives in a far away country in Europe. The house where they live in has the WiFi bands crowded. We usually FaceTime with the kids through WiFi connections, but sometimes through GSM internet, since it gives her much better quality. Some notes:FaceTime is without country borders. (Automatically = you do not need to care about where the other person is or how they connect.)FaceTime needs an internet connection on both ends. It can be WiFi or even through telco phone internet when you don’t want to use WiFi.If your iPad or Mac is connected to WiFi, it can also initiate and receive FaceTime calls. Bigger screen iPads are perfect for video calls.FaceTime needs to call a phone number or a mail address or an Apple id to connect to someone else. Till today it is limited to Apple devices at both ends.It builds up the calls automatically, you just need to have the contact person in your contacts. Then when you call, just tell the iPhone (or an other iDevice) that you want to use FaceTime and not the normal phone call. To build up the connection during a call it needs to send an SMS or eMail, but I have been using it for years now and did not see any mention of such costs on my bills.You can use FaceTime even without video, just for audio calls.The calls are encrypted at both ends. So others can’t listen in.Its little sister, iMessage has similar characteristics. In iOS 10 iMessage got even better.The quality of the calls is good. FaceTime and iMessage is maintained by Apple, and are totally free to use.FaceTime is for direct communications (you have to pick up the call to use it), iMessage is indirect (you don’t need to be at the other end when it is happening, can join in later into the conversations).iMessage is great for sending text, photos, videos, documents (even Word files or Excel spreadsheets), PDF files, voice files, music and lots of other materials to your family or friends or colleagues, to people you can put into group conversations. (Again, this all is encrypted.)

Why do Canada and the USA have the same telephone country code?
There was no international dialling system when the caller-dialled long distance systems of Canada and the US were established.It was much, much easier to work the already closely-related systems into one numbering plan than it was to anticipate what would be needed for international dialling before there was such a thing. The US was way ahead of the world in this respect at this time.That’s the answer; there was really nothing else to use. The solution was to integrate the two national systems into one.Nowadays, the US and Canada are both part of the North American Numbering Plan Area (NANPA) along with some obscure US colonies (Guam; American Samoa) and oddities such as Sint Maarten in the Netherlands Antilles, and most of the Caribbean nations.(And at one stage Tijuana and Mexico City were assigned area codes 903 and 905, respectively.)All territories in the NANPA use '1' as their country code.The US and Canada had telephone systems that were developed, simultaneously and together, partly because the Bell system operated in both countries and across the border, and partly because it was obvious that the two countries would have a great deal in common with each other.The use of the single 'country' code for the whole NANPA area followed this integrated development by some years and the country code '1' was allocated to NANPA by the CCITT/ITU, the part of the United Nations to whom the problem of developing, aligning and maintaining international telecoms standards was delegated.For good reason, North America's external country code was assigned to be '1', which coincidentally was also the same as the prefix used to dial long distance calls within the NANPA area.Paul Stockley's answer to What's the logic behind telephone country (ISD) codes?Wikipedia: North American Numbering Plan Boring Stuff: http://www.itu.int/dms_pub/itu-t...
I am getting calls from unknown numbers in international format.What should I do?
All calling numbers are always displayed in International Format in Mobile Display Screens. International format does NOT mean calls are coming from outside home country. In Telecom parlance , it means the calling telephone number is prefixed with calling Country ISD code. So, any call originating and terminating within India will also show number as +91*********** where 91 is ISD code for India.Any CLI other than Telemarketers / short codes AND not starting with +91 is an international call.After this basic understanding, it is necessary to know that calls from unknown numbers should not be answered. Many international incoming calls ring for a few seconds before disconnecting automatically. This is meant to induce the subscriber to make return calls. Most of the numbers belong to Premium Services and adult chatting sites operating in Ivory Coast, Tunisia, Canary Islands and many third world countries. The customer burns a hole in his pocket by entertaining such calls.Network operators can block calls to particular countries and the natural course of action to reduce or stop this nuisance is to approach customer care.

Phone call from UK Land line to Russian Mobile?
My girlfriend has gone home to Russia, she has given me her mobile number which is 8918--486--##--## the (8918) part is the area code and the 486--##--## is the actually phone number. Obviously living in the UK i must add the 00 to exit and 7 for Russia international code. i presume i have to dial 007--8918--486--##--##. The trouble is it doesn't dial. I tried lots of combination adding additional and subtracting numbers but each time no success. Am I doing something incorrect? (I have not given full phone number due to obvious safety reasons) Thankyou for reading :)

Russian Post will take all necessary steps to forward mail via alternative routes as soon as possible. The postal administration of Sri Lanka (LK) has advised that, following the closure of airports across Europe, it has suspended all airmail and EMS dispatches to Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Great Britain, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Russian Federation, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland with effect from Saturday, April 17.
