Do you have friends or family abroad? Staying connected with them is now easier than ever, thanks to the features available on your iPhone. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the step-by-step process of making international calls using your iPhone.

Step 1: Check your carrier’s international calling rates

Before making an international call, it’s essential to be aware of your carrier’s international calling rates. These rates can vary significantly depending on the country you are calling.

To check the rates, visit your carrier’s website or call their customer service helpline. Knowing the rates will help you plan and budget for your international calls.

Step 2: Enable International Calling

To make international calls on your iPhone, you need to ensure that international calling is enabled. Follow these steps:

  • Open the Settings app on your iPhone.
  • Scroll down and tap on “Phone”.
  • Select “SIM Applications”.
  • Choose “Select Mode”.
  • Select “International”. This will enable international calling on your iPhone.

Step 3: Dialing an International Number

To dial an international number, follow these steps:

  • Open the Phone app on your iPhone.
  • In the dialer, type a plus symbol (+) or double zero (00), which represents the exit code for making international calls from your country.
  • Enter the country code of the destination you are calling. Country codes are typically 1 to 3 digits long and can be found by doing a quick internet search.
  • Next, enter the area code (if applicable) followed by the local phone number.
