Telstra Easy Control 202 cordless - how to dial +

Answered

How does one dial the plus (+) to make international calls? Can’t find it in the manual and tried many times.

The + sign cannot be called from a Landline.

This is a mobile only feature and is used in mobile software as a worldwide identifier for international dial prefix.

 

Even if you were to call a regular Australian number from a mobile, and you call 07[number], your mobile would automatically convert this to international format - that being +617[number].

Essentially, the + is replacing the need to call 0011 on a mobile, so even if you were to call an international phone number (lets use NZ as an example) you'd call 64[number] and this would automatically be converted to +64[number] to meet standard international format for the country you're in.

If you were to call from another country, your mobile would automatically adjust the + to be the correct international dial code for that country.

 

I hope that makes sense.

You could try dialing 011 instead of +
