    Hey people i am trying to call a friend of mine that is in Belgium.... . He has two phones which and are on Virgin and Orange network. I have tried to ring both via phone card. I have looked on the net and found no leads and if anyone has a way to call please let me know asap!!!!!
    Apparently there are area codes for different cities and he is in Ypres for the night if it helps.

    Assuming his phone works abroad, you just dial the code for belgium and then his number I think.

    You probably drop the first digit of his number.

    For example, some UK Orange numbers begin 079...
    However, to dial a UK Orange number from outside the UK you dial +4479... (replace the + with the local code for international calls, or simply use the + if you are calling from a mobile).

    This is an internationally recognised standard so it should work almost anywhere, and it certainly works in Belgium.

    You have to use city codes for all land line calls, but mobile phones in Belgium have operator codes just as in the UK.

    If he doesn't have any credit on his phone you won't be able to get through though.

    And if it's just a mobile number from the UK you just dial as you normally would.

    It's only if you're calling a mobile subscribed with a Belgian network that you need to dial the country code

    e.g
    0032477....

    Good point. I just assumed he was calling someone with a Belgian mobile.

    If it's a UK mobile then it could even be barred from receiving calls while he's out of the country. And if he hasn't switched it off since leaving the UK then it probably isn't in roaming mode so it isn't going to work that way either.
