Making Phone Calls In London

12 posts in this topic

When I go to London, I am  planning to take my cell phone with me. It has a Dutch SIM card in it. I wonder how I make phone calls to escort agencies with it. The numbers start with an 0 (zero). I wonder how to do it:

- dial the digits as it is displayed on the website (the same way I would do with a Dutch agency when I am in the Netherlands);

- remove the first 0, and replace it with 00, followed by the country number of United Kingdom and then the rest of the number. In this case: what is the country number of UK?

 

How do I do this?

Probably you dial;

+44 2920 333333

ie you drop the lead zero of the UK number.

if you call 0207 420 4984 from abroad you dial 0044 207 420 4984. Most mobile phones will cope with +44207 420 4984.  am not sure if you need the +44 stuff using a foreign mobile in the UK.

but if I were you id get a UK pay as you go sim and use that while in the UK cos I think you will be charged for an international call. U should be able to get one at the airport or St Pancras, or from any phone shop.  But make sure your handset is unlocked before u travel or it wont work

 

Inadvisable to call the number I used as an example. Its the Ritz hotel!

Thanks for the info Corus Boy and Coventrypunter. Well... also thanks for the Ritz Hotel number. If I ever plan to pick the Ritz hotel (not the coming summer), I can immediately use your number, instead of looking it up. ;-)

You will probably find that you don't need the country code for the country you are in as it is the local network that does the call routing.

 

e.g. when i was in France recently, i just dialed tyhe number as displaed on signs - no country code needed.

Anuath,

 

It may be true. When I am in the Netherlands, I see the name of my local provider on the display of my phone. As soon when I move away from the Netherlands, it changes. In Germany, it became vodafone.de, and in Belgium and France (where I have been) it changes into Orange. I could sent SMSs and make a phone call to my parents without special steps. I just ticked on the name of the list and the call is realized. Maybe my phone added "+31" (code of the Netherlands) to it.

 

Some websites of escort agencies shows two numbers. The first is the Call UK (starting with a leading 0). The second is the Call International, which is the same number, but the 0 is replaced by "+44", apparently the country code of the United Kingdom. :)

 

It will be alright, I think, when I am in London, browse through the agencies and call some of them who has escorts of my liking. :)

you can call +44 numbers from any mobile in the UK.  I store numbers in my phone as +44 and they work fine. and they are charged as national calls.

Another point is that +44 and 0044 are interchangeable at the start of numbers :)

00 is the international access code in the UK and many other countries, but it is not universal.  + is and the system converts the + into the access code for where you are.

Dont know where the access code isnt 00 tho...

Make sure you do a lot of research beforehand. If I were you I'd select a couple of girls in advance, check their reviews/FRs.

It would be a real shame if you'd pick a girl and she turns out to be a different girl from the pictures in reality.

 

I will, especially one or two months before I go there. I often go to websites of WGs, and see what they offer. Then I look at the FRs. This way, WGs that turn out to disappoint me, are rare. Most of them are of my liking.
