International Dialing allows you to direct-dial international calls to many countries from your mobile phone, provided you're on a calling plan that allows it. If you have a prepaid account, you can also direct-dial international calls to many countries from your mobile phone.
Direct-dial international calling to some countries may be restricted due to a variety of reasons. However, you may always place an international call from your wireless phone using a calling card.
If you only call outside the U.S. occasionally, you can pay per minute. If you call frequently, you should sign up for the Verizon Wireless International Long Distance Value Plan.

How to Get It
You can add International Dialing to your account or order the International Long Distance Value Plan through the Change Features page in My Verizon. Visit our FAQ page for step-by-step instructions on how to change features on your account.
Even if you don't add International Dialing to your calling plan, you will still be able to direct dial international locations that support the North American 10-digit dialing pattern. International Long Distance Rates will apply to such calls.
How to Use It
Direct-dial international calls are placed in a similar manner to domestic long distance calls. An international phone number is generally made up of a country code, a city and the local exchanged number.
To Place a Call Outside of the U.S.
- Dial 011.
- Dial the country code.
- Dial the phone number you wish to reach.
Country codes are available on the International Long Distance page, or in the information pages of your local telephone directory.
