You won’t be able to use your phone for cellular calls, text, or data, outside of this group of 170+ countries and destinations. However, in almost all countries you visit, you'll be able to call and text over Wi-Fi.

How to call & text

Dial (area code) (local number).

 

Call or text another country
  1. Touch and hold 0 until you see on the display
  2. Dial (country code) (area code) (local number).

For example, if you’re dialing a number in the U.K. from Japan, dial + 44 (area code) (local number).

If this number format doesn’t work, you can also try using the exit code  of the country you are visiting. Use (exit code) (destination country code) (area code) (local number).
