How to call the USA from Australia?

To call a USA phone number from Australia, you need to do the following:

When calling the USA from your mobile, you first need to add the country code of +1, followed by the US area code and then the local number.
To enter “+”, hold down the “0” on your phone keypad for a second until the “+” symbol appears, then press 1. Remove the leading “0” from the area code/mobile number if there is one.

For example, to dial the USA number (714) 781 4000 from your Australian mobile you need to dial +1 714 781 4000.
If calling from a landline, replace the +1 with 0011 1, so it would be 0011 1 714 781 4000.

On all Cmobile C Blue plans from $25 per month and above, unlimited calls to the USA is included at no extra charge.

Call a USA number from your mobile:
1. Enter the “+” symbol on your keypad by holding down the “0” key until it appears*
2. Enter the US country code (1)
3. Enter the US area code (remember to remove the leading 0 if there is one)
4. Enter the US local number

*Your mobile phone converts the “+” into the correct international code not matter what country you are calling from.
In Australia, this is 0011 so “+” replaces 0011. You can do this anywhere in the world if you are roaming in another country.
